Out shopping looking for a gift. Saw a top. Their sizing ranged for xs to xl. Person is size 10. Asked assistant what size is a 10 and told medium. So,a size 12 is clearly a large and 14 xl.
I know vanity sizing and all that but this person is at the bottom end of normal weight. How can that be medium?

RosemarysBaby that pic you put up with Mindy thingy as a size ‘8’. Must be a US article, no?

So quoting Twiggy’s (UK) size 8 and using Mindy’s (USA) size 8as a ‘vanity sizing’ comparison is bollocks. A USA 8 is a current UK 12. So that timeline is comparing apples with oranges confused
