If you still don’t buy clothes online, you don’t know what you’re missing!
AliExpress is a Chinese website that brings together sellers from all over the world to offer quality clothes at a fair price. In other words, buying clothes on AliExpress is synonymous with economy and variety.
But unfortunately, many people end up giving up buying clothes from China for fear of making a mistake when choosing the size, after all, the oriental measurement chart is very different from ours.
Basic conversion of clothing measurements
As the Chinese tend to be smaller and slimmer than most people, it is not surprising that their measurements are quite different from ours.
So, if the conversion is not available in the ad, follow the equivalent measures below:
How to measure your body
Not sure where to measure your chest, waist and hips? No problem! Just check out the image below:
And if the measurements are in centimeters(cm), just use a calculator and multiply:
1cm = 0.3937 inches
1in = 2.54 cm
How to measure your foot
Another big question is when buying shoes, since most people don’t know how to measure their feet so they don’t make mistakes in the size.
The easiest way to measure the foot is to draw it on a blank sheet of paper. Then, just use a tape measure to know the distance from the heel to the big toe, as in the image below:
How to measure your fingers
And if you want to buy a ring, but you don’t know how to measure your finger correctly, follow the instructions:
Cut a strip of paper and go around the entire circumference of the finger you want to wear the ring on. Then you just need to mark the end and measure with a ruler.
And in case it’s a surprise to someone, you just need to take a ring worn by the person and measure the inside of it with the help of a very thin strip of paper.
So, just make the comparison with the numbering used by Chinese commerce.
