You have found a new top in an online store, but are not sure about the specified clothing sizes ">

Clothing sizes are important to be able to offer clothing on the international market. However, it is not so easy to find the right size, because designers and fashion houses, whether for men or women, different tailor and it can come to great differences. A brand offers its clothing only in the international sizes such as XS or L, while a well-established designer from France uses only French sizes. This is where ready-to-wear tables help, providing a rough overview of the differences. Since dress sizes are not standardized, however, you should measure your own body measurements and, if possible, compare them with the specifications.

The women's size chart will help you find the right sizes for tops, dresses or jackets. As with men, the tables are always based on the German size, which is also used in Holland, Switzerland, Austria and Spain. Other sizes include Italian, French, American and British, as well as the International sizes. Additional information is also listed. Here are the classic clothing sizes for women:
