Women's clothing sizes make no sense. Nor are they suppose to. Donna Karan
makes her women's sizes big. Her size 8 is a "standard" size 10. She claims women feel better about themselves when the tag has a smaller number on it. Things like this are partly to blame for the confusion.
There are a few standards in women's clothing. Dress size is the best example. Some companies use a -2/0/0 pattern, which would be for someone who had the measurements of 34/26/36. Other companies use a 0/0/0, 36/26/36. There are a few other combinations. The reason they supposedly use the size system they do for women, instead of the system that makes sense for men (based on inch measurements) is because women have curves.. duh! It still is retarded.. heh
Ladies, remember.. no matter whether you wear a 8 pants at one store, or a 12 at another.. you are still the same size scientifically..unless you jogged the 1000 miles from that chic shop in Chicago
, to Macy's
in New York City
.I always seem to wear a size smaller at The Gap.. tee-hee!
