European vs US sizes

I'm looking at the store in UK and I'm heck confused with sizing. Like we have S/M/L here on same vest, but what is L2, L4, etc? (I do understand L means ladies, but what about the numbers)

O-o! Thanks so much, Erika! I didn't even think they may have measurements there!

My vest is an L4 Slim & I wear a size small or a 2/4, with a 34" chest & 26" waist, if that helps at all.

It is. Thank you! When I tried Airowear in Dover my size was definitely medium (I'm pretty tall/heavy boned). It's interesting though HOW different the systems are!

That's weird. I know you, folks, have different sizes of boots down there. What about the cloth?

Clothes tend to come in sizes 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 etc

It is very hard to find anything below an 8 or above a 24.

Just to give you an idea of sizing a US size 0 is approx a UK size 4. I'm in a 24" jods (but generaly buy a 26" incase I put on weight) and I'm a size 8
