Frustration buying clothes
Saturday, April 20, 2013
I need some new summer clothes. I went to a local store and tried on several brands of capri's and shorts. The Amanda style by Gloria Vanderbilt fit the best. I tried on a size 20 and it was way too big (great right?). I tried on a size 18 and they were a bit large (really great right?). So I tried on a size 16 and they fit nicely. Now I'm feeling really proud. So I go back to the display to get another pair in a different color. I hold up the size 16 and think, wow they look smaller. So I took the pair I had tried on and measured the others to it. The size 16 pair I tried on were about an inch bigger in the waist than the others.
Now for the record the numbers don't make a lot of difference to me. I have some pants that are size 18 and another pair is size 22. I want them to fit and be comfortable, but it is frustrating when the sizing of the same style varies that much.
Oh well, life goes on, I guess.
