I’ve known people who have to take in size 0 pants because they are just built tiny (I guess I missed those genes!).  Plus it also depends greatly on the designer as to whether or not wedding dresses are “true sized” (some designers are – I’ve seen many Bees who have posted that their dress is their street size – mine is too!).

I had a friend one time in High School that was a size double 0! she was really really small but forreal a size double zero!!! that is like non existant!

i think these designers are just making up sizes now!

Size 24 (equivalent to a 00) jeans usually are too big on me. It is not because I am insanely skinny (although I am thin), but I have a tiny body frame and am only 5’0. Those pants usually fit me in the thigh but are loose around the hip/waist area.

However because I am short it makes my body proportions different and I can fit into dresses anywhere from size 0 to size 4, using alterations to nip in/take out the areas that don’t fit properly.
