The other day, I went shopping, and went crazy. I don’t even want to pretend to know how much I spent, because it was more money than I have in my bank account. I have an addiction, it’s no big deal.
But I seem to be the only person left who prefers to shop in stores. Everyone’s go-to is online these days, but I just can’t seem to make that work for clothing, simply because I never know what size to get. I’d generally say I’m a medium-sized person, but I could wear anywhere between an XS to a L depending on the store, fit, and product. In fact, the other day at American Eagle I literally bought a pair of shorts that were a size 10, and a pair of pants that were a size 4. At the SAME. FREAKING. STORE. How can anyone go shopping any more? Isn’t it time we get a more standardized sizing system? Is this only happening to me?!?!
Turns out, it’s not. Check out this Vox video that explains that it’s really, really, really not you when you go up a size.
Well, that’s a relief. And also…really fucking not, because I still don’t know what size to grab..
