Ugh US sizing is the worst, I wish my size was consistent. I’m a 00 – 0… sometimes I’m a 2. I can be a xs or a small. Sometimes even an xs is too big. Being 4’11” but having an althetic build makes it hard to buy clothes. I’m a 30-C in bras which has to be special ordered so usually I wear a 32-B which fits but isn’t perfect.

Edit. Never mind, apparently you should shut up unless you are average sized or above.

US clothing size is arbitrary, this has been confirmed by many stores/designers. It’s just a number, seriously. This may sound cliche but being healthy and happy with your body is much, much more important than the tag on your clothes. And I say this as someone whose weight has fluctuated so much due to medical issues that I have been both fat-shamed AND skinny-shamed in my lifetime.

I don’t see what’s so alarming about this thread. It’s just asking for numbers. No one is coming at you with calipers. And no one is fat or skinny shaming. If asking your size on a message board where no one knows you is shaming, that’s pretty pathetic.

katecod12 :  That’s what I’ve found, anywhere from 2-6, X-small or small, and in European size pants I *think* I’m a 34 or 35. I’m not a size 0 anymore lol. 34 double D is what they measured at Victoria’s secret. I refuse to believe it, their sizing must be wrong, but if I shop there, that’s the size I have to wear. Size 6.5 shoe. 6.5 ring

I agree that sizing in the US is wildly inconsistent. I’m usually a size 2, but have sizes ranging from 00-4 hanging in my closet. Typically I’m a size XS-S top. I wear a 32C, size 7.5-8 shoe, size 5.5 ring

soexcited123 :  Okay, but you had to know that weight/size/body image is a touchy subject for a lot of people. If you want a fun, light-hearted thread, maybe pick a topic that isn’t so divisive?
