The Size Attribute in our magento installation (Women's clothing site) has following size - S,M,L,XL,2XL,XL/2XL,2XL/3XL,1,2,3,4,5. I don't want to display such a long list to customers.
I would like to some how map - External /Public facing Size to Internal sizes. For instance Map [ S to S ][ S to S/M] [ S to 1][ S to 2]
[ XL to XL ] [XL to XL/2XL]. This way the customer in the Side bar filter is just displayed a reduced list S,M,L,XL,2XL,3XL.
When customers click S, they are displayed all products with size S,S/M,1,2 and so on.
I have same problem with colors. I want to show just 10 Primary colors and the actual colors are mapped to these primary ones. For instance Green covers Green, light green, olive, mint, etc.
