    US sizes are pretty random. I have US clothes in sizes from 00 to 6, and they all fit (I'm a UK 6/8). As a general rule, go down 4 for your US size, but it varies from shop to shop.

    I would never buy anything from over there without either trying it on, or having actual measurements to compare to clothes that fit me well.

    I'd also have a look out for a size guide at the place you are ordering. They're pretty helpful.

    i always thought they were 2 sizes lower?

    isnt a 0 a 4?

    which means an 8 is a 12?

    I meant down 4 numbers, rathers than sizes, as some US brands have odd numbered sizing, so = confusion central!
