A5) How do I convert between sizes?

Here are some conversions between European, U.K., and U.S. sizes:

Women's dresses and suits
For U.S. size, subtract 2 from U.K. size.
For U.S. size, subtract 30 from European size.
(UK 28 = US 26 = Euro 56)

Women's shoes
For U.S. size, add 1.5 to U.K. size.
(UK 8 = US 9.5)

Men's suits and coats
U.K. and U.S. sizes are the same.
For U.S. size, subtract 10 from European size.
