    If you are talking about clothing size, I would say "I take an L" or "I take a Large".

    Re: size

    In AmE, when referring to specific clothing sizes it is also common for people to say "I'm a 12" (usually a woman referring to either her dress size or pants/slacks size) or "I'm a 34 long" (a man describing his suit size).
