Don't get hung up on a number and don't be fooled by it either

A phrase all women should become familiar with, "vanity sizing", great article on how the sizing of women's clothing has changed over the years.

    Ignore the numbers! On the scale and on the tag ... it's how you FEEL that counts. If the clothes are comfortable and you feel good when wearing them, they're worth what you can afford to pay for them. If you feel fit, happy and energetic, then you're doing the right things regardless of what the scale says!

    I guess like the number on the scale, the number on the tag is just a number. So really fit matters, no matter what number is showing, we just need to get over what the tag says, and go with what looks good!

    All reasons why when you go shopping you have to try on your clothes and just can't assume it is going to fit. Even in the same store/brand they are not consistent.

    I learned about vanity sizing when I had a major change in income and had to shop in regular department stores. I thought I was one size, and found out I was two sizes larger. emoticon
