Size conversion for different country's

Updated on April 16, 2011

Size converter for kid sizes from China/Japan to US Sizes

Clothing sizes in Europe are different than those found worldwide. Each country has its own, strong identity. If you are a visitor from the USA, U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, shopping for clothes in Continental Western Europe, it might be useful to know the different measuring criteria.

The following information is designed to be a useful tool in converting worldwide sizes. Even though we tried our best to display the data as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee that it is absolutely correct as sizes of garments, shoes, and accessories vary between manufacturers and even between different collections by the same designer. You should use these charts for approximation only.

The best way to know which size is the perfect fit for you is to measure up a garment you have at home that is a great fit and really comfortable, and find your size within a couple of centimetres of that garment.

** The following conversion charts are to be used as REFERENCE only.

Abbreviation : Cont.=Continental M=Man W=Woman

Please refer to the measurements according to these criteria:

CHEST : circumference measured under the armpits

SHOULDER : from top of left shoulder across back all the way to top of right shoulder, seam to seam

LENGTH : from bottom of collar (collar seam) to bottom of garment

SLEEVE : from top of shoulder sleeve (or strap seam) to end of cuff

How-to guide, Tips & Hints

For reliable results, please be as accurate as you possibly can. The measuring tape must be held naturally, neither stretched nor slackened.

Measuring your Chest : with both your arms down, place the tape under your armpits and tape measure by turning it completely around your body without holding your breath. Your coat size typically equals your actual chest size plus a couple of inches to allow adequate room for a sweater and a comfortable movement.

Measuring your Waist : tape measure around your waistline where you usually wear your trousers. If your waist size is bigger than your chest size, then the former is the one to look for in the chart in order to determine your coat size.

Size Comparison

Here is an example of some children's sizes. I have found several charts and all have some differences. The best thing if possible is to go by product measurements. That way you can take measurements yourself and have the best fit possible.

US/ Europe/ UK/ Japan

2/ 16/18 / 40/45 / 90 cm

4/ 20/22 / 50/55 / 100 cm
