How to determine your dress size

How to determine your dress size  Shopping for clothes online, whether you buy them from a big box store or a custom clothier, can get you great style at bargain prices. Unfortunately it also comes with the worry that because you’re buying a clothing item sight-unseen, it just won’t fit and you’ve wasted your money. Here’s how to make sure that never, ever happens.

The chart below outlines average sizing for clothes and shoes for men, women, and children. There is also a conversion for European and American sizes. However, buyers should always refer to the seller’s descriptions of size and fit before using the provided sizing charts. Some brands may have their own size charts if products tend to run large or small. Pants and tops tend to run differently from brand to brand, and shoes, especially if they are intended for sports or another form of exercise, need to fit perfectly in order to be useful. Keep in mind that some items may be unisex or come in only one size. If questions remain about the size of a particular garment, it is always best to ask the seller directly. The size chart below requires that you measure your neck, chest, waist, sleeve, and inseam before ordering. If you do not have a measuring tape, simply use the printable measuring tape or take a piece of ribbon or string and line it up against a ruler or yardstick.
