Cross Dresser Sizes – What dress size are you really?

What dress size am I really?

Men and woman are built differently. (yup, you probably already knew that). This difference makes it harder for us to find woman’s clothes that fit well. It also doesn’t help that woman’s clothing sizes use a whole different size scale than men’s clothing. What is cross dresser to do?

Fortunately, as a reader of Cross Dresser Heaven you’re covered. There are a few important things to know about woman’s sizes. Firstly, the size is expressed with a (usually even) number, starting from 0. If your waist is around 36″ size 16 or 18 will probably fit you best. If you fit into a size 6 I’m envious, but will try not hold your good fortune against you.

Next, there are two “flavors” of women’s sizes. Misses and Women’s. You will usually see Women’s sizes with a W after the number (like 16W), or denoted by 1X, 2X or so on. Women’s sizes are normally larger at the waist and hips, think “fuller figure”. This is something to experiment with, I’ve found the Misses skirts and pants fit me best, but it depends on the clothing line whether a misses or women’s blouse fits best.

Within Misses and Women’s you can choose either a Tall or Petite. Tall is typically for women above 5’8″ while petite is for women shorter than 5’4″. Though the exact height also depends on the clothing line.

The final thing to consider is the difference between men and women’s body proportions. A women’s waist is higher, and their torso’s are longer than men’s. You can use this to your advantage, by wearing a pair of pants below your waist that were meant to be worn on the waist. This is helpful if you’re taller, and aren’t able to find a taller cut.

Here is a handy size table to give you a feel for woman’s sizes. I copied this from my favorite clothing store on the web, Newport News. They are a great place to buy clothes from online.

Larte 16, no? How are your hips? I only have 33 ‘… a size XXS (2) would be too big …. it does not even appear on the table

For the size of bust (34 ‘) and waist (27) would be small size (S) … but I hardly have hips, only 33’ (a size XXS2 would be great) …. what would be serious in general then? ??

Of course the sizing chart is important but is meaningless when the larger sizes are not available in the styles you like which can be very much a problem for those of us that are much shorter than average. Certainly in the UK a lot of the petite ranges do not go above size 16 so it is good when one finds a budget level store that stocks a Petite range that covers size 18 or 20 but the range of styles is still considerably less.
