* In most cases Italian women’s wear items are cut smaller than domestically produced items.
** Sizes are not standardized.
*** Several U.S. importers note that in most cases Italian children’s wear items are cut larger and wider than domestically produced items, resulting in Italian items being numbered improperly, i.e., too low for this market. As a consequence, the importer/retailer is often forced to add 1-2 numbers to the Italian sizes indicated, to obtain what they consider to be the correct size for the American market. Thus an Italian “2” will often be considered a “3” or even “4” by an American retailer.
