Korean clothing sizes for women

Since the sizes of the clothes are measured according to Korean standard body frames, a medium in your country can be totally different from a medium in South Korea. The majority of Korean women are quite petite, the most produced size being a 55 (or international size small!). Even the shape of garments is slightly different in Korea. You might have noticed that clothes in stores start a little smaller and finish a little smaller as well. South Korea does not have many options of plus sizes, however there are specialty shops in foreigner districts where you can find clothes.

Korean clothing sizes for men

In South Korea, the shape of men’s garments is not much different from the rest of the world, but it can still be difficult to find your corresponding Korean size. For tall or larger men, you can find specialty clothing in foreigner districts such as Itaewon.
