So I was shopping yesterday and I overheard a guy getting help from a female employee. He was trying to figure out what size sweatshirt to get his wife and he was trying to compare his wife's size to this employee. Though kind of creepy, I felt bad for the employee because she was all of 4'8'' and his wife was nearly a foot taller. Seeing that I was listening, they both looked at me and I caved and helped the guy out.
They both said that I probably resembled the wife more and compared shirt sizes and then pant sizes. When I told them I was a size 7 in juniors or a 6 in womens, they looked mortified! I got the whole..."oh no you are totally a size 2" talk. Look, I am an athlete and my butt and legs have not fit inside a size 2 since middle school and I am quite alright with that because last time I checked, a size 7 is considered a medium!
It's kind of like the one season of America's Next Top Model where the "plus sized" model wore a size 9. What the heck?!?!? A size 9 is also a MEDIUM! How is a medium plus sized?
I guess it's a 'society' thing, but I just don't get it. I am by no means embarrassed to wear a medium in anything.
