Instructions

  1. 1

    Check and confirm that the store has a return policy to make sure a return is possible if the clothing does not fit.

  2. 2

    Look at the tag on the piece of clothing to ensure it is a standard United States size. Note if it is a number or words. For example, it could say "2" or "Small."

  3. 3

    Add a three in front of single-digit sizes. For instance, a U.S. size 4 is a thirty four in European sizes. For double-digit sizes, replace the one with a four. If you are shopping and buying a 16 in a U.S. size, it is a 46 in European sizes.

Tips and warnings

  • Sizing can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The best way to find out if clothing fits is to try it on before purchasing.
  • Knowing your measurements can help store employees in other countries help you with sizing.
