Honey! They shrunk the sizes!
Has anyone else noticed they're shrinking?
I say this because I haven't changed appreciably in size in at least four years (when I had my last baby). I've lost the baby weight (three times, thankyouverymuch) and have discovered that while my weight holds steady, the size clothing I wear is shrinking.
I'm not complaining, mind you. It's just interesting.
Take J Crew, for instance. The Crack den just added a 00 to its sizing. So, what does that mean? According to employees, a 00 fits like a 0. A size 12 fits like a 14. Which is why I'm a 2. Or, an XS. All the sizes are being cut larger, so you can feel smaller.
I'll take it! Even though I know I'm not truly that small, I am just that delusional.
So, while we complain about everything else that goes with this crazy economy - the poor job climate, high prices - apparently the one thing we have to be thankful for is extreme vanity sizing.
