I am gonna hop up on my soap box for a moment.
Obviously there are size inconsistencies in women's clothing. This is something, that as a woman, you almost come to expect. There are even size variations within the same store, as I pointed out about my Old Navy shorts earlier this year. But I think that sometimes this goes too far.
For example, Target.
I freaking love your store Target. I would spend all of my monies there if I didn't have to pay for rent or my car. But you make me feel like I am not good enough to wear your clothes by your OUTRAGEOUSLY inaccurate sizing.
Not sure if you noticed, but I am now a 16. Not by "make-you-feel-better-about-yourself-fat-girl-store-sizes", but by normal, mainstream sizes at Old Navy and Maurices. But when I walk into your store and pull a size 20 off your rack and can not squeeze my body into it, I think the problem is yours, not mine. Why are your sizes SO much different than other stores that sell similar items? I can guarantee you are not making any friends by forcing women to size up to fit into your clothes. No one wants to be a size 6 everywhere, but a 10 at your store. Why don't you look at what other industry standards are, and get with the program?
Now I understand this is falling on deaf ears. And that inconsistencies in women's sizing is a fact of life we all have to deal with. I am just so over feeling like I am not good enough to fit into a certain stores clothes because their sizes are off. It is a great thing my self worth is not measured by my pant size.
So you wont find me in the clothing section of Target any time soon. The homegoods section tho, is a completely different story. I'm not THAT unreasonable :)
