The sizing game
Wednesday, August 15, 2007
So today I went out and tried on some bathing suits and jeans. I picked up some medium bathing suits and boy some of those things are hard to put on- maybe they were to small? The larges were to baggy though. Then afterwards I stopped by the pant section to take a look at what my jean size is. I have been wearing 10's since i hit the 140's which is great, but they are getting too baggy. So I took a pair of 8's and 6's back to see if I looked better in the 8's yet, and how far until the 6's....guess what. I fit my chunky butt into the 6's..easily!!!
Right now I am thinking it must have been a sizing fluke- but I could be wrong! I have vowed not to buy a pair of jeans until I hit my 120 goal (I'm not made of money ya' know) so I wonder if I will look better in those 6's or if I will be in a 4. I think I would be happy to stay in 6's, as long as I look good naked.
Anyhow so after all this trying on bs, I am left wondering if there really is a huge difference between pant sizes. It seems like the difference between sizes is getting smaller as you go down- am I wrong? Also what sizing system do bathing suits use- it must be some terrible otherworldly equation because they just don't seem to fit well.
