Converting Your Size To An International Size

How To Convert Your Size To International Sizing
How To Convert Your Size To International Sizing

Why Do I Need To Know My New International Size

There is something very exciting about shopping for clothing or shoes Internationally, that is until you figure out how to convert your regular size to the correct international size, from Petite to Plus Size clothing, converting even the most basic clothing item is easy, as you become familiar with that particulars country's method of sizing.Whether you buy Internationally online, or are in a country foreign to you ,it will save time and money to know your correct size.

Recipes Converting Weights And Measures don't flip the page ,because you have no idea how to figure grams or ounces.Just make notes with a pencil beside your favourite recipes,adjusting here n there ,eventually you can erase the conversions,because you'll be such an expert!.

Store your International sizes ,post inside your closet door ,or somewhere handy right beside your computer (which is probably ,where you will be ordering from).

Remember when ordering online to check if the company pays for shipping both ways ,should you make an expensive mistake. and have to return any items. Happy shopping.



Converting Clothing Sizes To International

Remember also that when converting clothing sizes to an intrernational size even with charts, manufacturers will vary between each other and as an added precaution especially purchasing online ,double check sizes and terms of service.

Odering online Will they take garments back and exchange and also pay for return shipping costs?

  • I hope this reference converting your size into a corresponding International size will help as an easy and quick reference.
