If a brand provides a women's clothing size chart, go with that sizing. These size charts are only a guide to finding your size comparison.
There are multiple size types, designed to fit somewhat different body shapes. Variations include the height of the person's torso known as back length , whether the bust, waist, and hips are straighter characteristic of teenagers or curvier like many adult women , and whether the bust is higher or lower characteristic of younger and older women, respectively.
Misses sizes - The most common size category. For women of about average height 5'4" with an average bust height and an hourglass figure. Dress sizes may be given as girth at the bust in inches e. Categorical sizes range from XS extra-small to XL extra-large. Junior sizes - For short women with higher busts and fairly straight bodies. Junior sizes are commonly given as odd-numbered sizes from 1 to 15, which correspond to the next number up in misses' sizes.
Women's sizes or plus sizes - For larger women of average height, sometimes with lower bust lines. Like misses' sizes, the sizes may be given as a dress size based on the bust measurement, but they are usually given as even-numbered sizes from 18 up. Categorical sizes usually range from 1X similar to extra-large, but with slightly different proportions compared to the misses' size up.
Misses petite - For short women with average busts and more hourglass body shapes. Sizes follow the misses' standard and are marked with a P, as in 10P. Junior petite - For very short women with average busts and fairly straight bodies.
Size may be denoted as "5JP" or as "5P". Women's petite - For larger, shorter women, sometimes with lower bust lines. Sizes are marked the same as women's with a P, as in 20P. Young junior - For short women with high busts and fairly straight bodies.
Tall sizes - For taller women usually 5'8" or above , usually with a proportionately average bust height and an hourglass figure. Sizes are usually written with the corresponding misses' size and a T to indicate tall, as in "10T". Half sizes - For short women with lower busts and more hourglass body shapes.

I am not responsible for any problems caused by reliance on this table.
It's my best guess as to size conversions based on data found elsewhere on the web. I suggest you talk to the vendor or merchant about size conversions before ordering.
Note that manufacturers vary on sizing as well. Differences from the values on this page by either plus or minus a size or half-size are not uncommon. In reviewing various tables on the web, I noted many tables with gross mistakes easily detected by seeing values out of order.
Compare the surrounding values in tables you find on-line and determine if they make logical sense, before ordering. To use these Shoesize convertors, first choose the adult, boys or girls convertor.
Then find the row that represents the region of the world which you want to convert the size from. Let's call this the "FROM" row. Look across the "FROM" row to the size closest in value to the one you want to convert from. Now, in the same converter table, find the row with the sizes of the region that you want to convert to.
Let's call this the "TO" row. Finally, by looking straight up and down in the column, that is the same column that has the size you identified in the "FROM" row, find the same column in the "TO" row.
The size in this column in the "TO" row is the converted size. For example, if you are an adult Japanese man, and know your size to be 26, and want to know your Mexican shoe size, then you would look in the adult table at the row labeled "Japan Men".
Find the column with a "26". Now look at the row for "Mexico" and look across until you are in the same column as the "Japan Men 26". You should see a "6.
On most browsers, you can use the mouse to highlight a country's row in the converter for easier reading and conversion. You can make the tables larger or smaller by changing the text size setting of your browser. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, choose the menu items: Shoe sellers on eBay are now referring to these tables. Due to wide variations among shoe measurement systems, relying solely on these tables is not sufficient to guarantee everyone's happiness.
I suggest sellers measure the inside of the shoe from toe to heel and list the measurement in inches and centimeters. Buyers should measure their foot from toe to heel. Buyers should request that sellers list the actual inside toe-to-heel measurement, if it is not provided.
Without the actual measurements, insist on reasonable return policies. You can refer to this paragraph with http: Shoe Size Conversion Tables: Adult , Girls , Boys. For most people, the larger foot is the opposite from the hand they write with. Try on shoes starting with your larger foot. Look at me, judge me by my size do you, hmm?
