The Best Asian Clothing Size Conversion Guide for Online Shoppers for 2021

A comprehensive size conversion chart guide to help convert from Asian to US, UK, and EU standards for online shoppers.

We all like to appear distinctive in front of others, and what expresses this most is our choices of clothes and the accessories that we wear, so we are very careful to have them well selected, high quality, attractive colors, and distinctive designs. The choice of each person expresses what is inside, as well as his cultural orientations. So when buying clothes, we care about having a stylish look compatible with our encounters, and at the same time not so expensive. For most of us, this sometimes lowers the opportunity of buying our clothes from direct local markets. Instead, we can find more and more options and choices to choose from. Nowadays, this has become completely affordable and easy to accomplish from your couch through online shopping.

In some traditional local markets, the exploitation of some merchants in exaggerating their products forced people to redirect their attention to the online side of commerce. There, we find almost all these goods offered at half price in some Chinese shopping sites with much better quality. But, we face some obstacles in the measurements of clothes due to the smaller sizes of Chinese fashion. In fact, I am one of those customers, and my first shopping experience from China made me well realize this problem, and pay more attention when shopping online at such Chinese stores in the future.

In the world of clothes and apparel, because most online trading processes take place between china as a main big source of goods and all other countries of the world, the need to have a good guide for Chinese size conversion before buying a piece became more and more essential. These size charts will be shown and explained for different sorts of clothes and shoes in this article.

I myself refer to some important size conversion charts before buying clothes and shoes from China, which is the advice that I will review with you here.

How do I find the proper size of a product?

Measurement tape (2)

First, after entering the site and choosing all attributes of the product like color and model, you may find in some websites what is called “Size List”. You may find a list of sizes next to the image and product data, or at the bottom of the product image, or in the name of the Size Guide.

In any size chart, the important measurements found are shoulder, sleeve length, and chest circumference either in inches or centimeters. taking into account the difference in sizes between US sizes and Chinese and European sizes. This means that these measurements are usually found in more than one international standard to enable the buyer to perform the conversion process.

But if these charts are not provided on the website, then the need for such general-purpose and comprehensive size conversion charts necessarily rises. The main size conversion tables are as follows:

Asian Size Charts – General size

Chinese Clothing Sizes

In China, they use two different systems. This is because they measure two different parts of the body. You may see, for example, that a size medium in the US is a size 88 – 90 or 165 – 170 in China.

Japanese Clothing Sizes

Japan uses the lettered system (XS-XL). However, you have to be cautious because these sizes tend to run smaller compared to US or UK sizes. A medium in Asian size would perhaps be small in US stores.  Japan also uses two different numbered systems in sizing. So you might see sizes 9 or 38 which equivalents to a US/UK small.

Korean Clothing Sizes

This country uses a very simple numbered system. You will see a size 55 for small in the US size, for example.
