there are some really cute bikinis online. but i don´t know about the sizing. what is "EU36"? Is that something different to "normal" 36? because it says "XS - EU36"

Yeah, I would say EU36 is normal 36.

I don't know. I never go by XS, S, M,... if there are also EU sizes written next to the XS-XL.

36 is european sizing...(french, usually- italian is different)
and is the equivalent of a american size 4...
which is an extra small...

ie- i am a 38 (french), 42 (italian), sz 6(american), size small (universal), size 2 (japan)


don't even get me started on shoe sizing...
...

From what I experienced with Asos sizing so far...

6=xxs=32/34
8=xs=34/36
10=S=36/38

Always on the smaller side of the scale.

It differs a lot or their own brand. I own dresses from a size 8 to 12 that all fit perfectly. I'd just order both sizes. Shipping is free and they refund you quickly.

yeah---it's confusing...
maybe diesanni is more familiar with asos than i am...
i am only speaking from my personal knowledge and my experience with luxury brands through work...

it gets more complicated as we get more global...
we are going to need to shift over to some universal sizing at some point i think...
:p

i suggest you buy two sizes and send back the one that doesn't fit!
good luck!
*edit*---oh---we had the same suggestion!...hahaha...

i forgot to even include UK sizing...in which i am apparently a 10......

I agree that ASOS tends to run small. I'd say go for the measurements (and google the size charts for other brands) rather than the size itself.

wondering the same for US? Is it just me or have they significantly reduced their promos?

Would they say that they were closer to Topshop quality or H&M quality?
