How do you convert women sizes from number sizes to letter sizes?

Men's Tops
Sizes.........Chest (in)
XS............35-36
S..............37-39
M.............40-42
L..............43-45
XL...........46-48
XXL.........49-51
XXXL.......52-54
Note: Men's numerical sizes usually match the chest (in.) measurements.
To get your chest measurement, use a tailors' measuring tape
to measure around your chest just under your arms.


Women's Tops
# Size......Letter size...Bust (in)
00 ............ XXS/XS.......31
0 ………....XS...............32
2 ………… S.................33
4 ………… S.................34
6 ………… M................35

10 ……….. L................37.5
12………… L................39
14 ……….. XL.............40.5
16 ……….. XL..............42
18 ……,….XXL............44
Note: Women's letter sizes usually cover two numerical sizes.
To get your bust measurement, use a tailors' measuring tape
to measure completely around your bust at the fullest point with your arms relaxed at your sides.
