Some entrepreneur has turned this issue to their advantage. The obvious answer: a full body scanner that tells you your size at various retailers.
I'm not sure this thread makes me feel any better. LOL I have been steadily increasing in size since high school. I was a 7/9 when I graduated high school (still wore juniors sizes) and a solid 8 for a long time after that. Now I am a 12. I bought jeans a couple years ago, some at old Navy, some at JCPenney. Right after I had my daughter I got into a 10 for about 6 months (nursing weight loss) and since then I have been in a 12. Does that now mean that I am actually wearing a 14 or a 16, or higher?
That's sort of disheartening...
And why are my underwear sized differently? I wear a size 7 in underpants! LOL
Me too. I was completely unaware of this size discrepancy until reading this thread. I have gained a good amount of weight over the years. When I was 18 years old I was a size 4, now I am a size 14. So if clothes sizes have changed that much in the last 15 years, I'm not really a size 14 now. I'm actually plus-sized, or what used to be plus-sized. This really does not make me feel better about my weight gain. :(
