How To: International Sizing & Conversions

Posted on

While all sizes shown on the Zodee site are in Australian sizing, understanding international sizing is incredibly important when shopping in retail. While it seems as though there are many aspects to sizing, it’s important to understand how it all works so you can get the best out of your purchases.

The best way to know your ideal size is to first know your measurements. Once you have these numbers, you can use any of the sizing guidelines offered on our site to determine your suitable size, whether it’s for clothing, lingerie or swimwear. You can find a previous post we have written on how to determine your measurements here, while sizing guidelines can be found here.

Occasionally sizing can differ from brand to brand. For example, you may find that while you’re a size 12 for most brands and styles, you might be a 10 or 14 in another brand. This can be due to the types of fabrics used in production, the way fabric is cut and whether the brand is using generic or nongeneric measurements. Fortunately, Zodee has a great returns policy where you can return or exchange your item for another size if the one you ordered doesn’t fit.

When shopping for lingerie and some swimwear styles, it’s also important to have a reasonably good grasp on cup sizing. As an example, you may find that you’re a D cup in some brands and a C or DD in others. Below we have created comparison sizing charts so you can see the Australian, American, U.K. and French equivalents at a glance. It’s also common to see alpha sizing on product tags, so we have created an International Alpha Sizing chart to help.
