# How to choose clothes from the table of sizes of different countries

Clothing sizes - some alphabetic or numerical code, corresponding to certain linear parameters of the human body or its parts, for which this particular piece of clothing is intended. To simplify the choice of clothes or footwear suitable for this or that person, manufacturers use size designation systems. In most cases, the size is applied to a tag attached to clothing, and in the case of shoes, it can be on the sole or insole.

In Russia, the designation of the sizes of some types of clothing (underwear, nightwear, top shirts for men and boys) is determined in accordance with GOST R 53230-2008.
