Clothing Sizes

Porteños are, on average, smaller than Europeans and North Americans. Chic women's boutiques often don't carry clothes in sizes larger than a U.S. 8. It doesn't get any better for men: a porteño men's large will seem more like a small to many visitors, and trousers rarely come in different lengths.
