Like you, before I left for Japan, I was worried about being hard to fit for Japanese clothes because I heard that Japanese people are very petite. Fortunately, the clothes were bigger than my expectations.

I'm almost middle aged (34), 5'5'' and weigh 55kgs (around 120 or so pounds). To my surprise, I noticed that I'm actually slightly slimmer than the average Japanese woman of my height and age. So... I'm just saying that you are not too far from average.

Free size trousers at harajuku- probably not, free size tops at Harajuku- most likely if you choose the loose styles. I don't know whether you are young or not, but if you are young and looking for trendy styles, then your size might be a little harder to find. If you are shopping middle-aged styles and dept stores, clothes tend to be more forgiving.

I would check the item's actual size (dimensions, measurements of garment) before ordering. You can't really order by size, it may wind up too big, too snug or too small.

where are you from? 2011/1/18 09:12
You really need to say which country's sizing you are talking about- an 8 in the UK for example is much smaller than an 8 in the US, and mediums in Japan are often a lot smaller than those in other countries.

Also since Japan uses the metric system, maybe you could do the conversions and post the measurements in cm/kg for people who aren't familiar with inches and pound measurements?
