Size charts for clothing can vary from country to country. With a simple formula, United States clothing sizes can easily be converted into Brazilian sizes. Brazil uses the European sizing chart.

Things You'll Need

Check and confirm that the store has a return policy to make sure a return is possible if the clothing does not fit.

Look at the tag on the piece of clothing to ensure it is a standard United States size. Note if it is a number or words. For example, it could say “2” or “Small.”

Add a three in front of single-digit sizes. For instance, a U.S. size 4 is a thirty four in European sizes. For double-digit sizes, replace the one with a four. If you are shopping and buying a 16 in a U.S. size, it is a 46 in European sizes.


Tips

  • Sizing can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The best way to find out if clothing fits is to try it on before purchasing.

  • Knowing your measurements can help store employees in other countries help you with sizing.
