What is happening with clothing sizes these days???
I am a size 10, I have always been a size 10, which is a bloody miracle seeing as I know for a fact that I am bigger now than before I had the kids…I’m not blind, I have a mirror, I have a tape measure, and while I am not about to share those measurements with you, trust me when I say, they are larger in number now.
I set out to prove my point…so I dug out this pair of jeans that I had in about 1988 (yes, I never throw anything away on the premise if you keep it long enough it will come back into fashion)….and this proved my point…the old size 10 jeans barely got up past my knees, the new size 10 jeans fit like a glove…
I guess it’s a ploy by clothing manufacturers to make us feel better…but sizes should be sizes shouldn’t they???
Or, of course, as my son suggests...I should get a life!!!!!!
