Are you familiar with Vanity Sizing? Where a brand will move their sizing designations down so that, if you usually wear an 8, now you wear the same pants of theirs in a 6? It's that sneaky psychological thing where you like it that you are a size 6 (never mind that your ass IS STILL THE SAME SIZE), so you buy. I have ranted before about sizing and how it is totally inconsistent in women's clothing. I wear a size 10 in one brand and a size 2 in another. I am entirely serious! So fit is what matters, size means nothing.
This leads to today's Cute Yoga Pants and What do you mean I am a LARGE? post
See these yoga/workout pants? Are they not adorable? Let's not even discuss price, OK? You don't want to know. Though women know that there is an intangible value to pants that make your butt look good and will pay accordingly. So, entertaining my fantasy that I might find a pair on sale (Hahahah! *wipes tears from eye*) I looked at their sizing chart. According top their measurements I am a large. Ok, fine, but a LARGE on their charts is a size 6. When the **&%*)) did a LARGE become a size 6?!? It's like the opposite of vanity sizing. I think it's SHAME SIZING. These are popular with many Hollywood actresses and my theory is they compare what size they are to this chart and determine that they are merely a Medium when they are a size 4, thus they may be shamed to workout harder to get down to a Small. Really, I have no idea. Anyway, I'll check out the sale rack at Target I think. :)
