28, 29 etc is the size of your waist in inches. i don't know what corresponds to size 8, 10 etc. im thinking a 26' waist is a size 8?? not completely sure though..

i would say 28 is about a size 10.....
2 inches up from that would be another dress size up (i think)

Size 8 is about a 25" waist at most I think. But in trousers it'd be much higher I suppose due to hips.

I found a chart that says:

Waist (inches) Size (UK dress sizes)
22 = 8
24 = 10
26 = 12
28 = 14
30 = 16
32 = 18


I'm not too sure about these though - I'm a size 8/10 but my waist measurements don't fit with those exactly. I guess they're useful as a rough guide though.

Edit: the justification's gone weird but you know what I mean

Dress sizes are misleading anyway, there's so much variation between shops it's getting silly. No wonder people are paranoid about their shape!

Um, yeah, whatever.

Cross the Atlantic and you'll drop two sizes. Instant boost to some women's ego.

Those are wrong. It's:

6= 24
8 = 26
10 = 28
12 = 30
14 = 32

etc...

shops such as zara, mango, topshop go by this scale.......designers such as earl jeans, moschino go by the same scale, but their sizes tend to be bigger (especially earl jeans)

Are Zara, Topshop etc. clothes shops for teenagers though? They do tend to use smaller waist sizes...but I only Googled it so I warned the sizes aren't reliable

hey! I've got a 22" waist, and I assure you, it doesn't look like nothing (it just depends on your proportions)
