I am hoping to buy some items but am having difficulty figuring out my correct size conversion.

I am used to the traditional Australian size charts where it starts at 6 or 8 & then 10, 12, 14, 16 etc.

The victorias secrets start at size 0 & I am not sure if thats equive to an 8 or 6 or smaller.

Is anyone familiar with their (US) sizing charts????

Size 0 is about a 6 here.  At some point, I think the sizes are equal, but I'm not sure (I am a size 6/0!).  If you google it, you'll find plenty of size conversion charts that will be more help than me!

I highly recommend their  cotton briefs!  Last forever !  I usually get their 5 for $25 deal and mix and match.

I'm a size 16-18 here and wear a XL-XXL in their stuff.  I like the XXL for the bikinis but the Xl in the "more coverage" briefs are fine.

With the dollar now they are a fantastic buy - just be aware that, although unlikely, you can get hit with duty!  In 10 years of buying online from the US I was hit once on $200 from VC!
My friends and I from work had gotten together a larger order to save on freight.  :mad:

How confusing, it could be a 0, a 2 according to this site or a 4 onthis site.

Has anyone else purchased a dress from VS before. I am worried if I buy the wrong size that sending it back will cost me a fortune in extra postage.

There should be a size chart on the site somewhere that has measurements for bus/hips etc?

Ah Ha!  Here tis - even has Australia on it!


Good luck!

I have no idea about sizes however if it were me i would buy the bigger size cause at least you can alter it here (might be cheaper) rather than sending it back. If it is too small you have no choice but to send it back

Coffeegirl, that size conversion chart is for the bras only. If you scroll down to the standard clothing size chart, you can see it doesn't have the Aust conversions, but thanks anyway.

It looks like I might have to pull out my good ole tape measure
