Clothing and shoe sizes

Clothing and shoe sizes don't just vary between the US and the UK, they also vary between countries in continental Europe, so picking your size is not the easiest task in the world!

As well as this, in my and my wife's experience, different designers and makes of clothes have their own definition of "size 8" or "taglia 42", so it's always best to try things on first. The cut or last really makes a difference!
