I know this is a stupid question but i need to know!
I was just wondering. I'm interested in buying clothes from Survey's but i don't have a clue what free size means? does it fit everysize, or does it only fit an XSmall?

I've bought a good amount of clothes from Korea and China now and I can tell you that freesize is pretty meaningless without some measurements to go by. For the most part I would say they are American size small (since sizes tend run large here retail)

it just means it will probably fit several sizes. that it is baggy. sort of like maternity wear. or something like this:

That's not it, I don't think. It's just a size that fits the average built person. Seeing that this term is used in Asia, the size runs a bit smaller than the average American. American sizes, I'd say it's usually between Small and Medium. There are some freesize clothes I fit in and others that I can't.

^yea i agree. it really depends with the shirt. or the style//cutting of it. some freesize shirts were made like a size small, or a smaller medium. &from surveys you can probably tell from the pictures they include.

i wear american size m/l &yea, there are some freesize shirts i fit into easily and some that would fit my sister just right &she's a small.

I wondered, too! But some of the surveys give the measurements in cm and I remembered seeing A&F having both inches+cm size chart so I compared it like that and it came out to be usually a Small size.

My sister bought a freesize top and it was loose, but it looked fine and not baggy.

I have yet to get my first freesize survey item, but I hope it'll fit fine!

it means that itll fit you if you look about the size of the model thats modeling it...

i got a 'freesize' hoodie once

and im not FAT, but apparently i had to jam my not-stick-skinny-arms into them 'freesize' sleeves -_-

so theyll look good, on a typical thin-petite asian girl -_-

Free size generally mean S-M, but they sometimes fit L too. I ordered some t-shirts from G-Market, and it felt especially tight around the boob area, and I'm normally a S.

freesize is a general size...a lot of my clothes are freesize and i fit into them...or they are a bit baggy etc. Many asians are of similar build (in this case...skinny/slim etc) and thus this is what freesize is for. its about a small-medium

Saves trying on stuff lol
