With the advent of online stores, there has been a demand for information about determining the size. How else? Sitting in front of the monitor, it is difficult to guess how well this or that model will sit. Of course, a non -disposed thing can be exchanged, but this is a waste of time and means.
Let’s try to systematize everything that we know about the size. To begin with, there are several sizes determining: Russian, European and American. The method for determining sizes for men and women practically do not differ.
Take, for example, the size of the dress. To determine what a woman can count on, we undress her. Don’t smile. Just down to underwear. Moreover, the underwear should be correct, the chest should be moderately raised, since it is by this female pride that we will determine the cherished figures.
Using a measuring tape, measure the circumference of the chest. “Centimeter” should pass through the most protruding points. Do not trust yourself, invite an assistant who will make everything right. We look, we make a note – 88 cm. Divide the figure in half and get 44 size. Quite simply, the size of women’s clothing is the semi-circumference of the chest. Compare with international sizes. Russian 44th is German or European 38th. Difference minus 6 units. That is, the 46th is the European 40th, the 48th is the European 42nd, etc.d.
The Americans and the British are a little different, our 44th is the American 12th, the 46th Russian size is the number 14 on the product, the 48th is the number sixteen, and so on through two units.
It also happens that after looking at the price tag or site page, the buyer sees only Roman numbers, these are international sizes. In this case, the size sign helps:
XS – 40 size
S – 42 size
M – 44 size
L – 46 size
XL – 48 size
Xxl – 50 size
Xxxl – 52 size
In Europe, it is customary to divide clothes into clothing category N – normal growth, from 165 cm to 172 cm. Category l – tall women with model growth above 172 cm and category K – miniature women from 157 cm to 164 cm. Very “inch” let them look for the beaks of the EC-ultra-small growth below 157 cm.
We act similarly with men, measure the volume of the chest, divide by two and the Russian size is known. Having learned the main figure, we begin to “dance” from it. Europeans love to divide the male population into n – men of standard size, U – stocky men who have a little wider waist, b – men, large abdomen and s – thin and slender male individuals without muscle mass.
Clothing manufacturers, thus, give a sign to the buyer that in models of their category they will feel more comfortable.
Men’s shirts are chosen by the girth of the neck. We measure it at the base and, given the resulting volume, we purchase a shirt of the number in the digit. For example, 41 cm is the 41st size.
It should be borne in mind that often the size of the top and the bottom of the costume do not coincide. Well, it remains to advise to purchase parts of the suit apart.
And the last, determining the size of jeans. All jeans dimensions are in inches, and on the price tag there will be two numbers through the fraction 32/32, 33/32 and t. D. We experiment.
Forgetful reminding inch – this is 2.54 cm. We measure the waist volume and divide it by 2.54. For example, my husband’s waist is 88 cm, divide 88 by 2.54 and get an integer 34, the maximum size of the husband and the first digit on the price tag. Where does the second number come from? The length of the trousers on the inner seam is important here. Long -legged men – 87 cm, should look through the fraction of the number 34, guys lower – 82 cm, they will see the number 32 through the fractional line.
Thus, the dimensions of the outerwear are determined, linen and sock products have a slightly different gradation.
