Japan sz 11 = what US size? 2009/7/27 15:20
I want to send my penpal a shirt. She says she's sz 11 in Japan. I tried using conversion charts but they seem unreliable. Judging from her pic, I think she fits US sz S and 6?

If anyone is around Japan sz 11, i would be really grateful with your advice on this size.

That would be US size 6 to 8 (I'm size 11 in Japan), but it also depends on what kind of shirt or what kind of cut/design you are looking at... if by the photo she seems to have slim shoulders/upper arms, then you could try 6.

Usually, in the US, I'm either a 00 or 0... sometimes it may be a 2.

What would this be in Japan? Thanks!

one shoulder tank top 2009/7/28 04:09
To AK: Thanks for confirming the size. I just bought a one shoulder tank top sz small(6) w/some elasticity to be safe. It seems like a sz L in Japan is more like a sz S in US. Did you find that to be true in your experience AK?

Again, domo arigato!

You mean bottoms, right? Try size 5 or 7.
