Things can get a little confusing regarding clothing and shoe sizes. A size 6 in the United States might be 8 in the United Kingdom. What is a size 9 in the US that might be a size 11 in Europe?

It can all be confusing for shoppers unfamiliar with international sizing standards. This guide is meant to act as a general sizing guide. Some countries may vary in their size, but this should still point you in the right direction.

As you consider where to buy clothing or shoes and how you will ship them, consider using Shippn! We forward packages to over 200 countries and can help you save up to 80% on shipping costs.


Clothing can be tricky to size, especially when you’re not used to the sizing standards of other countries or when the clothing doesn’t always fit true-to-size. This guide should help provide a general idea about what measures are in different countries and how they compare with US clothing sizing.

Women’s Clothing Sizes

This section is dedicated to women’s clothing, including dresses, jackets, coats, blouses, and sweaters. Please note that these are general size guidelines, but you may find that certain brands or manufacturers use their own sizing guidelines.

For the other international sizing systems, simply look up your size in the country that corresponds to yours.

As you may have seen, several European countries have their own system of measuring clothing.

The British sizes are also used in Australia and New Zealand but smaller quantities. Belgian, Spanish, and Portuguese sizes are all based on the French standard. Italian clothing sizes are either very similar to or the same as French sizing, however, there are slight differences between men’s and women’s sizing.

Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are among the countries that utilize the German sizes.

Men’s Clothing Sizes

This section is dedicated to men’s clothing, including suits, dress shirts, and jackets. Again, please note that these are general size guidelines, but you may find that certain brands or manufacturers use their sizing guidelines.

Note: European sizes are available for apparel made in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, France, Sweden, and Spain.

As you can see, the sizing systems are not that complicated. You need to know where you fall in with each country’s system, and it will be easy to find the right size clothing items at the right stores.
