Women's clothing sizes are SUCH A SCAM!
Tuesday, May 08, 2018
I've been going through my closet to get rid of some of the biggest things I don't need any more. I don't want to have a 'safety net' because I don't want to make it any easier to gain back weight.
I have to try EVERYTHING on. There is no consistency between sizes. The older the garment, the higher the number has to be for me to be able to fit into it. The clothing makers know that women will buy something if it means they "fit into a size N", so they put smaller numbers on larger clothes to make them sell and that has been happening for a long time now. You cannot tell how big something is by the size label! You know it's true -- you try on this size N and it fits and that size N and it doesn't.
Men's clothing is sized by cm or inches. I want this for us. We can stop agonising over the number and accept the fact that our dimensions are what they are. It would make clothing shopping easier both on line and in person.
We need to make this a movement! Women's sizing by measurements, please! Now!
