Shopping Apparel Sizes for your eBay Business

By Marsha Collier

Part of eBay Business All-In-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet

When buying clothing to sell on eBay, be sure you have the right sizes in your business inventory. The average American woman’s dress size is 14 (the beginning of plus-size clothing), not an 8; the average American man is a 40 regular. When buying apparel for your eBay business in lots for resale, ignore the standard “1 small, 3 medium, and 2 large” lot, and instead buy 1 small, 2 medium, 1 large, and 1 extra-large.

When selling apparel, be sure to add measurements. A site like Size.ly can help you tailor the measurements to your garment.
