Vanity Sizing (Part 2)
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Okay, the more I look into this vanity sizing thing, the more pissed off I get (see yesterday's blog if you have not yet). I was so excited to fit into a size 4. SO EXCITED! But really, I want to fit into the clothes that I got too big for. These imposters claim to be a size 4, but I think in all reality they are at least a 6. I have a pair of work pants in a size 6 that are slightly snug. That is how the "4"s fit me. BUT, who's to say that the work pants that are a size 6 aren't imposters too? What if they are really a size 8??
Please, don't get me wrong here. I know it's not all about the numbers. Whether those pants say 2 or 14, I am the size I am. I GET THAT! But I had a goal that I was working for "to be a size 4". That was a dream. To be and maintain that size was what I wanted to accomplish. But now it's all fake. I don't WANT to be a "size 2". I think that is too small for my body. Even though at my favorite store a "size 2" is probably the same size as the "goal jeans" I have at home that are "size 4". But to me, a "size 2" body with my frame would not be what I am going for.
My hips are 37-3/4 inches and my waist is 28 inches. These are real numbers. They can not lie. But I don't know how to use those numbers to create a goal. I'm just confused by this information. I know that I am losing weight and lots of inches. The "size 8" pants from my favorite store use to fit me fine - now I'm lucky every day they don't just fall off. Good stuff right there! But heck, if these designers will create imposter pants that lie about their true size, who's to say they won't create pants that get bigger with each wash?? Then people would always need to buy clothes because theirs are too big!
I guess I will just continue to work to get my booty in my "goal jeans" that I have at home. By the time I get in them I will probably be a size -26 in today's sizing.
