women's size query, from a man

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Dear Folks:

I sell some clothing on ebay, usually men's. Now I have a few items for women, and I am not sure of the proper size category.

One item is an Isaia cotton and silk blazer. The euro size on the label is 46. The measurements are: top to bottom in back 30, shoulder 16.75, arm 24.75, bust 40, waist 37.5. It's a sport coat or blazer with a three button front and notch lapels. What US size is this?

Also I have a Loro Piana blouse, euro size label 44 and the measurements are bust 39, waist 35, measure in back 26.5, shoulder 16, arm 24.

All measurements are in inches.

Any help appreciated.

You might post this question on AAAC's women's fashion forum. Edit: Sorry I can't help. I know nothing about women's clothing.

My size conversion table suggests, that size 46 Italian is a size 16 US. Italian 44 is US 14. In women's clothing sizing seems to vary by country even within Europe. So a size 40 Italian is a 44 in Spain, 38 in Netherlands and Germany etc. So that's different from men's clothes where a size 50 is the same all over (continental) Europe.
Anyway, I'm not an expert for women's clothing, I just looked it up in a table. So maybe someone else can confirm this before you list.

An Italian size 46 would be about a US size 12 and the size 44 would be a 10 (and 42 would be an 8, 40 a 6, etc.).
