Sizing Standards

4XL is a size that is typically considered an “extra large.” The measurements for a 4XL typically fall between those of a size 18 and 20, or 44 and 48 in Europe. Sizes for clothing vary depending on the country and the manufacturer, so it is important to check the size chart before purchasing an item.


4XL is equivalent to a size 52 in the US sizing system. This is the highest size in most brands’ standard size range. Some brands may carry even higher sizes, but they will usually be considered “extended” or “specialty” sizes and may come with different fit and style characteristics.


In the UK, clothing sizes generally range from 8-18 for women, 38-54 for men, and 6-22 for girls and boys. However, these ranges can differ depending on the brand or retailer.

There are also a number of different sizing systems in use around the world, with the UK/US system being the most common. However, as more and more people shop online from international retailers, it’s important to know how to convert your UK size into its US equivalent.

To make things a little easier, we’ve put together a quick guide to UK vs US sizing standards. Please bear in mind that this is only a general guide and that you should always check the specific size charts for any garments you’re considering purchasing.

How to Measure Yourself

When you are shopping for clothes, it is important to know your sizes. This includes understanding what a size 4XL is. To find your size, you will need to take some measurements of your body. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to measure yourself so that you can find the right size clothes.


There are two main ways to measure your clothing size in the United States. The first is referred to as the old fashioned way and uses a measuring tape. The second is the new standard and uses your height, weight, and chest circumference to determine your size.

To measure your clothing size using a measuring tape, you will need to take three measurements. First, measure your chest by wrapping the tape around your body at the widest point of your chest and shoulders. Second, measure your waist by wrapping the tape around your body at the narrowest point of your waist. Finally, measure your hips by wrapping the tape around your body at the widest point of your hips.

Once you have all three measurements, you will need to consult a size chart to determine which size is right for you. There are a variety of size charts available online, or you can ask a salesperson at a clothing store for help.

The second way to measure yourself is by using your height, weight, and chest circumference. To do this, you will first need to weigh yourself on a scale in pounds. Next, use a tape measure to find out how tall you are in inches. Finally, wrap the tape measure around your chest at the widest point and make a note of that number in inches.

Once you have all three measurements, you can consult a size chart to find out what clothes will fit you best. Again, there are plenty of size charts available online or from clothing retailers.


The UK uses the metric system so 4XL is usually expressed in centimeters. To find your size, you’ll need to measure your chest and waist.

-Chest: Measure around the fullest part of your chest.
-Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your waist.

If you’re between sizes or if you have a large bust, you may want to size up.
