Why haven't countries on a universal standard for clothes sizes?

I was in a shop earlier which literally had eight different sizes for the same piece of clothing. There was a US size, a UK size, a BR size, a CN size, an EU size, etc etc etc.

Why haven't countries agreed to use one universal size? It sounds like so obvious and so trivial an improvement I don't understand why it hasn't already been done. The only reason I can think of is that it's politically inconvenient to do so, but political disagreements still haven't stopped countries from agreeing on other sensible things, e.g. the location of the International Date Line, measuring time from 00:01am to 11:59pm, the colors of traffic lights, and so on.
