@Nic01:  Nordstroms breaks down the sizes for you, so I would use their shoe website as a resource.  the tricky part will be deciding whether to size up or down for the 6.5 and 8.5.  

  • Women’s Sizing {Brazilian}: 35=5-6, 37=7-8, 39=9-10, 41=11-12.

Do half sizes matter for havis? Half just means the shoe is wider I thought, which wouldn’t be an issue in thongs (flip-flops for our northern hemisphere cousins 🙂 ) I am a size 9 normally and my havi’s are a 39/40. This seems to match up with what this website says:

Due to the nature of thongs I can also go a size down (as in when I bought some in Thailand and they don’t cater to western feet sizes so much) and it’s still ok. So I wouldn’t worry to much!

Is there a 38/39 size? there isn’t one on that link to the Havi’s chart I provided, goes straight from 37/38 to 39/40?

havianas run either large or small. it’s best to have people try them on.

i have quite a few pairs. depending on the style, i wear anything from an 8 to a 10. my normal shoe size for sandals is 9.

@Nic01:  I think you don’t need to worry so much, like I said, I can fit into several different sizes with no problem..I’d go with 37/38 for your 8.5 bridesmaid. If I’m a 9 and can fit them ok it should be fine 🙂

I’m a 6-6.5 and have Havainas is 35 and 37, both are fine. I do find that the length of the 35 fits my foot perfectly, while the 37 has a bit if extra space. I’m usually a 6, and only sometimes a 6.5 though. I prefer the 35 personally, but if your BM is a true 6.5, she may prefer the 37.
