What size am I in a skirt?

I am a medium in men's clothing size and I want to know what size I would be in women's skirts. Some have the size like 16, 18. What one of those am I?

    First you have to say whether these are US or UK sizes. US size numbers are 2-4 below the corresponding UK sizes (for instance, a US size 4 is a UK 6 or 8 depending on the designers).

    You won't wear any of the sizes you listed. Those are all "plus" sizes.
    Remember, men are a lot bigger than women in the upper body, but not much bigger below the waist... so, if you are size M in men's bottoms, you're not going to wear XXXL/size 18 in women's.

    In any case...
    Here are some typical waist and hip measurements for a few different sizes.
    Waist = all the way around yr NATURAL waist (*NOT* the "waist" where yr pants sit)
    Hip = all the way around wherever yr ass is biggest.

    US size 6 (UK 8 or 10): Waist 28", hip 37-39"
    US size 8 (UK 10 or 12): Waist 29", hip 38-40"
    US size 10 (UK 12 or 14): Waist 30", hip 40-42"
    US size 12 (UK 14 or 16): Waist 31-32", hip 42-45"

    You are a guy, so, you don't have a woman's waist. So it's unlikely that you would match both numbers for any given size.

    Unless you are trying to buy a high-waisted style (please God don't -- really, don't), the hip measurement is probably the one you should use.

    • This is just an interesting topic. I'm 36 in jeans. Which means I have a 36 inch or higher waist. Last time I measured my waist was 37.5 but I fit well in a medium size which is 32 hmmm
      My old jeans are 32 but I don't know if they fit me now
      Hmmm interesting how men and women are so unique

  • What's your pants size...

    • Medium.
      Jean size is 32 - 36 inch

  • What country? Those are all too big for you in any country though really. But different countries have different sizes.
