Are you planning a shopping spree in Paris? Or maybe just an online hunt for European clothes? In either case you will need to familiarise yourself with the Continental European size charts which differ from the UK numeration.

The tables below are intended to serve as an approximation only, as sizes differ from one brand to another.

Did you know?

The first mass produced garments were the early 19th century soldiers’ uniforms. Before that, all items of clothing were tailored for each individual customer.

While men’s sizes were easy to standardize, it took another 50 years to work out standard measurements for women due to their more significant discrepancies in body proportions.
