I wear size 7 in US, size 12 in UK, so that's add 5!

I looove American sizing as it's the only time in my life that I'm a 12 !!!! (usual size 16 !)

NomDePlume, that doesn't match the Gap sizing which is as Irishbirdd says (6US = 10UK). How bizarre.

I think you have to add different numbers depending on whether it is a Juniors', Misses', or Women's size (they aren't all on the same scale). For Misses, you add 2 to covert a US size to a UK size.
