Female size "XL" - 50 minutes, and corresponds to a fairly high for women increased in 176 cm. And the biggest indicator- "4XL": 56/182.In male models marking requirement is also very wide.It begins with the letters "S", ie"small" and ends with "5XL".Range of growth begins and ends 170 cm 182 cm, and size - from 46 th to 60 th.Clothing size "XL" male pattern matches then 52 th;
