    Just a question: What is the american size of an Australian size 12?

    An 8 is the US equivalent of our 12.

    Be careful of just converting the sizes - look at their size charts and measure yourself and figure it out that way. Some pin-up stuff tends to be pretty small, especially around the waist.

    True. And a good way to get an idea of whether measurements will fit is to compare them to the measurements of brands you know fit - or don't fit.

    The modcloth stuff is fantastic. Kicking myself for being a size 16 right now.

    Oh well, will give me motivation to lose another 10kg.
