    Cutting to the chase, I would like to buy a male t-shirt, and I'm a size 10 top. Only problem is, is that I have no idea which category a women's size 10 would fit (see below), and I don't have any tape to help.

    S 43cm 72cm 17" 28.5"
    L 54.5cm 76cm 21.5" 30"
    2XL 63.5cm 81.5cm 25" 32"

    What would be the best size? I'm not looking for something too tight. I was thinking about a Male M but I'm not sure...

    Go with male M, would you prefer bigger/baggy to tight?

    I don't understand those measurements. They can't be chest measurements - 17" is literally the size of a baby. I'm a size 8 and my back measurement is 31".

    No, it's the chest and length

    If a male shirt measures 21"
    Then it means the WIDTH of the t-shirt not the circumfrance of the chest.

    A 21" chest would = 42" circumfrance.

    Small mens usually works out to be 10/12 womens, at least that's what I've found with band t-shirts.

    In my experience, go up one/two sizes from your women's size to get your men's - so if you're a S then you'd be an XXS or an XS. I think considering a 10 is a female M at the most a men's M would probably swamp you
