As there is not an international standard for sizes of clothing yet, there are some differences that can be observed for the same general clothing size in different countries. They strike me as vandalism which has slipped under the radar. Updated 12 August
Ok, iv corrected the information in this article. It now fits with the generally agreed standards that i could find on fashion websites. Iv also made it very clear that this is a rough guide only in the opening section. Where are the rest of the sizes?
For example men's 3XL and up? I'm no expert here, but I do know that English size 8 is size 42 in continental Europe. This table can't be right. That doesn't seem right..
Is it supposed to be that way or..? A UK size 4 is actually more like a US size 00 in terms of measurements. The measurement for a UK size 4 are roughly , I cannot believe the US could have sizes smaller than those measurements. Size 4 is the UK's smallest size, in fact it's very hard to find. It's just common sense. I think they have the NZ sizes incorrect as well; a NZ 14 is not a UK 12, it's more likely to be the other way around!
I also think the UK women's sizes have gone weird in the last year or so, they seem to be made for the male figure - ie very skinny legs and comparatively large waist I hope this is not due to the European Union standardising mentioned in the article. There must be something wrong. On the German Wikipedia site it is mentioned that Italian sizes are 3 numbers higher than the German ones.
Meaning a German 38 is an Italian This is a German And that would be 12 at the bust, 9 at the waist, 14 at the hips. Seems to me that these girls and sizes defer somewhat A couple of month's ago, it was on the news that all European sizes became one size bigger ie. Definitely not, it is just a natural process. Formal measurements stay the same and US 0 is hardly EU It is more like EU 30 or Whereas, the conversion charts for Overstock. The conversion graph for womens clothing sizes is definitely wrong.
So far I've only seen meseurments in numbers. S, M, L, etc. A better size would be a number since centimetres or inches have the same lengths the world over. Hi I added a link to www. It is not a sales or promotional page and performs a similar function to the other external links. Can this link be reinstated? I see exactly where you're coming from here, what you really ought to do is learn the data on the webpage, and put the information learnt into the wikipedia artical as you see best without referencing that website what so ever.
That way you safely avoid wikipedia's filtering and removal bots. Its all about perfection on wikipedia, and a link to that website is untolerable, as useful as it is, wikipedia's policy cannot allow for it.
And nothing worse than clicking on a link that takes you to a web page that has been deleted or changed. Stores have finally recognized the demand for more sizes, and some items are now available in large sizes. Finding shoes is fairly simple, as the sizes are just the measurement of the length of your foot in centimeters. A US size 8 UK size 6 would be a size Japanese shoes also tend to fit a bit more narrowly than Western shoes, which can be either a blessing or a curse depending on foot shape.
An S is about 23cm, an M about It makes sense actually; tall women with model-like figures also have larger feet. Bras in Japan are measured with a combination of cup size and under-bust size the band size.
Take the under-bust measurement with a measuring tape to get the band size. A size 32 in the US works out to be a size 70 in Japan. A 34 is a size 75, a 36 a size 80, and so on. For cup size, size up one whole cup, sometimes two. So a 32A becomes a 70B, a 34B becomes a 75C, and so on.
Try a couple sizes on and see what feels right. The largest cup size found in many stores is a D, or size E in Japan. For each half-size, the Japanese size goes up by one, so a US size A US size is a size small, a US size is a size medium, a size is a size large, and a is an extra-large.
Pants are measured by waist size in centimeters. A 28 inch waist is about 71 centimeters. A 32 inch waist is about 81, a 36 inch waist is Larger size shoes can be found at big shoe stores and online. A size 60 would be a child that is 60cm tall up to 3 months in age. A size 70 is up to 6 months, size 80 up to one year, size 90 up to two years, size 95 up to 3 years, size years, size years, and size years old. I may be necessary to size up depending on the height, weight, and chest size.
Now that you are armed with your size information, go boldly in to the world of Japanese clothing.
Sellers should measure the clothes and list in centimeters and inches, and buyers should request this information to compare to their clothes. Before buying clothes online check the sellers return policy, as there is a good chance you will end up with a size that does not fit perfectly.
