A guide to buying French clothing

While France has since long been associated with a passion for good food, more recently, Paris has become a fashion trend-setter for the rest of the world. If you are interested in French clothing, read on to learn more about French sizes and where to get hold of fabulous clothes and fashionable footwear.

Buying French clothing

Before purchasing any item of foreign clothing or footwear, it is crucial to know what the sizes mean when translated into English. It is also important to be aware of the exchange rates from the Euro to the Sterling, to ensure that you do not end up paying through the nose. For those who are curvaceous, it is worth knowing that the French are not renowned for big sizes, making it difficult to find plus size shoes, large dresses and big tops. French sizes The easiest way to convert French clothing and footwear sizes is to head to an online conversion site and print out sizes that you need. A UK (for women) size 8 is a French 36, UK 10 is French 38, UK 12 is French 40 and so on. In terms of footwear, a UK size 5 is a French 38, UK 6 is a French 39, UK 7 is French 41 and so on. For footwear, the French conversion will also be valid for all European countries.
