Shopping Conversions

Somehow in my packing and unpacking I managed to only bring 1 suit with me. As a result I had to head to the shops today to find another suit jacket for my trips this week. I had to remember that sizes are slightly different here than in the US.

US 6 8 10 12 14
UK 8 10 12 14 16

US 6.5 7.5 8.5 9.5 10.5 11.5
UK 5 6 7 8 9 10

So while my feet are getting smaller the rest of me is getting bigger!

There's been a huge controversy here over size 0 models at fashion week. Some cities have banned them saying they promote eating disorders, while others are still allowing them to model. With the difference in sizing I'm wondering if they mean size 0 US or size 0 UK?

in some areas of the world small feet are considered a sign of beauty.
