Converting Women Size to Fleece
Just wondered if any of the few ladies on the forum can help with this one.
Women's usual sizings in the shops are like size 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and so on.
How do you convert or calculate roughly what size in Fleeces those sizings would equate to?
E.g. would 8-10 be small, 12 be medium, 14 be large and so on?
It is for a possible gift.
Depends on the manufacturer... and their definitions of 8, 10, 12, etc.
But, commonly, XXS=6, XS=8, S=10, M=12, L=14, XL=16, XXL=18
Take care of the US numeric sizes, which are 2 smaller than European, US4=UK6.
Sadly, there's little consistency in clothing sizes, even within numeric sizing, let alone conversions between numeric and descriptive sizes (S, M, etc). Not to mention the issue of 'vanity sizing'...
Wiki page on clothing sizes
Many outdoor manufacturers stick to numeric sizes for women, or quote both numeric and descriptive sizes. e.g. Sprayway.

Quite. I am a 12 (M) in some tops and a 14 (L) in others. But that's roughly the exchange rate.
Check individual manufacturer's websites, they usually have a chart. The usual problems exist that Brand X's idea of S/size 10 may be a tent compared to Brand Y's...
