Male to Female Clothing Size Conversion

How do you figure out what a guy should wear in women's clothing size or measurement? Do you go by matching up the guy's waist measurement to the girl's on the clothing size chart, or is there something like "+ 2 inches"? I'm pretty sure that bust and hip measurements can't be used since there's an obvious difference in physique.

I'd think doing shoulder width measurement would be the most accurate way to figure out what fits, but women's clothing tend to not come with a shoulder measurement chart, only b/w/h/height.

I'm not sure exactly but I'd probably pick the size with the closest measurements to the guys and then go a size up. Maybe more depending on the guy.

I think the bust measurement could be used. Because a girl would be less broad, but have more mass in the front, whereas the guy would be flatter, but broader and so occupy about the same amount of space.

That's just my guess.
I doubt there's a set rule though, since all clothes makers set their own sizes I think.
