Wondering if you’re actually a size 12 or a 14? Sizes seem to differ from store to store in New Zealand alone, so online shopping opens up a whole new world of confusion with international sizing. To try and make sense of it, we’ve researched a few different sources and constructed a few handy conversion charts for all your international online shopping needs.

There is no specific size you should be for your height. Your overall health cannot be determined by dress size alone, so it’s best to see a doctor if you want advice on what a healthy size would be for you. The average height and weight for a woman in New Zealand is 72kg and about 165cm tall.
This varies from brand to brand and by country. Some stores will consider a medium to be a size 10, while others a size 12–14. As an average, a medium is likely to be around a size 12. Generally a small will be a NZ 8–10 and a large a NZ 14–16. An extra small is likely to be a size 6, with an extra large likely to be a size 18. This is all dependent on retailers, dress cut and shape – so we’d always recommend trying a dress on, checking the store’s own sizing chart or using a retailer with free returns.
It absolutely depends on the retailers, but a lot of plus size–specific retailers will stock from size 14 or 16 upwards.
