European Sizes
Can anyone help with European sizes? What would an 8 in Europe be equivalent to in US sizes? What about a Europe 6? Or a 10?

Thanks

If you're talking about women's clothes sizes, the 'Europe' sizes that you're referring to are actually UK sizes.
A UK6 is a US2, a UK8 is a US4, a UK10 is a US6. We generally don't have the equivalent of a US0 and it's hard enough trying to find a UK6 if you're really teensy.....but a UK8 is quite small already. I find American sizes a bit bigger than what I think they're gonna be. Like when I buy clothes in US, I buy 2 or a 4 even though in the UK, I'm an 8/10.

Europe sizes varies between country to country.....France and Italy have different sizing as well.

European 34 = Italian 38 = UK 8 = US 4
European 36 = Italian 40 = UK 10 = US 6
European 38 = Italian 42 = UK 12 = US 8
European 40 = Italian 44 = UK 14 = US 10
European 42 = Italian 46 = UK 16 = US 12
