Check out our clothing size conversions guide
before shopping in Vegas

When we first arrived in Las Vegas we didn't even know there were such things as clothing size conversions guides let alone having looked at one for men or one for women before hitting the shops. Did this cause a problem? Yes! Let me explain...

On our honeymoon to Sin City it took us all of five minutes waiting outside for transport at McCarran Airport to realise that we should have packed some warmer clothes and checked out the weather forecast before leaving the UK rather than assuming because we were heading to the desert that it would be hot. We’ll put this slip down to having a lot on our minds with the wedding!

However, this meant we had a pretty urgent need to find a Las Vegas shopping mall. We were on a tight enough budget as it was so didn’t have the luxury of hitting the high-end shopping malls in Las Vegas. But that’s the great thing about this city; it doesn’t discriminate. There’s something for everyone. So we headed out to the Las Vegas Outlet Center, a large factory outlet, to pick up some bargains.

Armed with long sleeved tops and full-length trousers (pants) we hit the changing rooms only to realise that something wasn’t quite right! I tried on top after top but they were all swamping me. I checked the label. No, I’d definitely picked up the right size. So what was going on?

I hadn’t remembered that clothes are sized differently across the world. Luckily, the assistant was really helpful and explained the clothing size conversions to me for UK to US women’s clothes and helped me fetch more in the correct sizes.

So, before you begin shopping in Vegas you might find it useful to cast your eye over the sizing guides below. They contain a comparison of the sizes between America, the UK and Europe.

However, as you’ll know from shopping in your own country, sizes of clothes made by different manufacturers can vary hugely so just use this chart as a guide and try before you buy!
