    Body types - bad Chinese translations

    I have ordered off a few Chinese sites and the latest adventure is with TaoBao.

    Some 1\6 accessories ask for a body type to insure a good fit.

    What I don't quite get is some ask for a body type on items not related to the chest size, ie pants. Are the different body types that drastically different in hip and leg size?

    Phicen L, Phicen M, Phicen ferrite with M are the three that confuse me.

    I assume Phicen Ferrite is the new stainless bodies, M being chest size and proportionately hips?

    The Phicen L and Phicen M refer to older bodies?

    Any insight from others facing this issue would be a big help.

    Thanks

    PS - I can pass on tips/suggestions learned from my TaoBao experiences.

    I can't help with the rest of your query, but pants can certainly be quite different - it's not uncommon to find pants which are swimming on one body but too tight on a TTM-19 (as in you can't even do the button up).

    I started a build with an old Soldier Story body which needed a lot of customising, then I bought the pants and shirt from Battlegear Toys only to find that they were way too big and baggy for the body I was using. They did fit perfectly on a TTM-19 though.

    Phicen L & M refer to breast size, large and medium.

    The search button is your friend...many posts specifically about Phicen bodies!
