This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…
men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.
THE NOTES ON THIS
because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.”
so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT
Forever grateful for this post for removing the shame of going into a different store and finding that the pants do not fit me even though I am WEARING the “same size” pants right that moment.
And this is why I hate shopping(and why on the rare occasion that I do shop, I only shop at marshalls or ross since it’s not only cheaper, but it also has multiple brands so that instead of having to go to a completely different store if I don’t find something I like I just have to go to a different part of the same aisle plus each size has a section so I don’t have to search among 20 of the same outfit just to find out that it isn’t in my size for that brand).
