The smaller the number the bigger the swivel. So 12 would be the smallest, and the 2/0 would be the biggest. 2/0 is way to big for anything except sea fishing(I would think). I'm going to say go with something like an 8 or 10, but dont take my word on that. :) Its just like hooks.

Mike about nailed it.  Go with something a little smaller.  I normally try and use the smallest one I can get away with.  I am actually trying to get away from using them as much as I can but they come in handy under a few circumstances and they just make changing lures so much easier.

Swivels can save a lot of trouble from line twist. If you're using inline spinners, spoons, pre-rigged worms, or any other lure that spins, a swivel is a must. They are also the best thing to use for carolina or lindy rigs, keeping the weight from sliding down. I'm not quite sure but I think that different sized swivels can handle different wieght, the bigger obviously capable of pulling more pounds.
