Shopping - Size Conversions

When travelling to Florida, it is very unlikely that anyone will return home without having bought some items of clothing or shoes/trainers.

To help make the shopping experience even more pleasant, it is helpful to have a guide to clothes/shoe sizes especially if buying clothing to take home as gifts.Men’s clothing is far easier in this respect than women’s as many of the sizes are the equivalent in the U.K. e.g. suits, sweaters, overcoats, shirts and socks. It should be noted that although in the U.K. men’s and women’s shoe sizes are equivalent, this is not the case in the U.S. Continental sizes are, of course completely different.

Men’s clothing

Suits/Jackets/Sweaters/Overcoat

U.K/U.S 34 36 38 40 42 44 46
Europe 44 46 48 50 52 54 56

Shirts

U.K. 14 14½ 15 15½ 16 16½ 17
Europe 36 37 38 39 41 42 43

Shoes

U.K. 8 9 10 10½
U.S.A 9 10 10½ 11
Europe 42 43 44 45 46 47

Women’s clothing

Skirts, blouses, dresses, coats, trousers

U.K. 8 10 12 14 16 18 20
U.S.A. 6 8 10 12 14 16 18
Europe 38 40 42 44 46 48 50

Shoes

U.K. 4 5 6 7
U.S.A. 6 7 8
Europe 35 36 38 39 40 41 42


To add to the problem, not all manufacturers use the same sizing code. Many simply use sizings of XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL.

The U.K. equivalents would be: XS = 6-8, X = 10, M = 12-14 etc.

Always be sure to try on garments before returning home. It’s a long way to go to return them!! But Oh! What a great excuse!!
