Hi All,
Since many of us shop online, creating a comphrehensive sizing report by label would be extremly helpful. Then we can compile it in an easy to follow graph. Meaning if I'm a DKNY 6, that would make me a BCBG 4. In order for it to be accurate those of you that have a consistent weight/shape/size (not me lol), please report the different sizes you take in the different labels by clothing style.
Here's 1 guide for jeans I found: http://www.girllounge.com/sizing.html

Example:
Blouse: BCBG 6, DKNY 4, Gap Small etc.
Pant: BCBG 12, DKNY 8, Gap Large etc.
Dress: BCBG 12, DKNY 8, JCREW Medium etc.
and of course anything else you can think of...

Thanks all!

I think this is a great idea as so many of us order clothes intl. and don't understand how sizing translates.

I lost weight (unintentionally) and can't seem to find any clothes that fit. I'm 5'5-6 ish and 32-23-33.

Anne-Valerie Hash - S is slightly large
Balenciaga - 36
Hugo Boss - 34 in pants
Isabel Marant - 0
James Perse tanks in size 1 fit
ArchIndigo - size 24 in Venus jeans
BCBG XXS altered coat and some XS sweaters fit but most are too big
Dolce and D&G - XS, 38, depends...sweaters and dresses...not jeans

Brands/Lines/Designers that are too big for me even in their smallest sizes:
Behnaz Sarafour
Bennetton / Sisley
Chloe
Development
Jak&Rae
Joyaan
Martin Margiela (pants in size 36 were too big, don't know if they come in 34)
Mcqueen
Park Vogel
Paul & Joe
Vanessa Bruno
Vivienne Tam

and that's all...

genius idea for a thread!!!! i'm so tired of paying so much for S+H b/c of size + fit issues. hopefully this will make everyone's online shopping more inexpensive!!!

i dunno where else to post this, so here it is...i'm ordering a james perse dress (see pic) i'm 33-23-32 and am 5'4" and 95 pounds. usually i just order the smallest size and hope that it fits me. HOWEVER, i just found a really old james perse t-shirt in my closet that says 3 on their scale of 1-2-3-4 sizing. it fits me fine-- did they used to cut smaller (like 5 years ago), or did my top shrink through so much wash + dry??? do they cut really tight-- i don't like tight clothes! or is it b/c of my broad shoulders? HELP- what size should i order?!

vanessa bruno 38, xs
chloe - every size too big
gucci- 38
prada xs, 0, 38
versace 38
d&g 38
vince xs or 0
diane von furstenburg: 0
splendid small- xs too small
marc by mj- 0 or xs
vivienne tam- xs, 0


blue cult 25
chip & pepper 24
sass & bide 25
citizens of humanity 24
joseph 0
joe's jeans 24
sevens 24

shoes: (don't make fun of me- i have big feet!!!)

jimmy choo 40
gucci 40

wow, this is a great idea for a thread! i hate those "standardized size charts" on every website...that's so ridiculously unhelpful because all designers cut so differently. i'll have to post my size equivelants tomorrow, when i'm not so tired!

More...

Moschino 40 tops / jackets/ coats
Dolce & Gabbana 40 tops / coats / jackets, etc.

Does anyone know anything about Elie Tahari sizing???? I have fallen in love with a jacket from either Spring collection and I would have to mail order it from the States. I am confused about their sizing I would typically take either S or XS in the jacket however on Saks website XS is 0-2 and on Neimans XS is 2-4. Which would you say is the correct sizing?? Does anyone know if this range runs small or large ??? Thanks !!

I just have to add that if you didn't know it Rochas has some major sizing abnormalities, a lot of their jackets and coats are cut teeny weeny in the some areas armholes, shoulders, etc. and it is therefore recommended that you should try before you buy any pieces from this line.
