Always a source of frustration, finding the perfect size for your body can be difficult at the best of times. Among the worst of the problems: sizes being completely different depending on the store or designer. One woman in England has addressed the issue head on, and with a single tweet has shown the disparity of sizing for a pair of size 12 jeans.
Posting a photo of the seven pairs of jeans to Twitter, it’s immediately clear that these jeans have vastly different waistlines, despite being labelled as a size 12.
The replies were swift and strong. Women all over the world retweeted the photo, sharing their own stories and lamenting the pain. One even said she’d stopped wearing jeans altogether, thanks to the issue.
Another shared a petition she’d started, urging people to get laws introduced around standardised sizing.
Another confirmed she’d had the same problem, but with shorts.
One woman’s story of small-leaning sizing was absurd.
Moral of this story? Retailers, you really need to get together to standardise your sizes, because women of the world are not happy.
