Comparative Size of a Dwarf

A typical Dwarf star, such as our own Sun, compared with giant and supergiant stars Aldebaran and Antares.

A star of roughly the same size as Earth's Sun, or smaller. 'Dwarf' is perhaps an unhappy term; it is used simply to distinguish these stars from 'giants', and doesn't imply that they are particularly small.
