Shopping should be fun and relaxing. For many, this is a form of therapy, but shopping can also be stressful when trying to buy the right size clothes. sizes different depending on the company. For example, size 12 for one brand may be a size 10 for another. On March 8, 2019 a Twitter user @chloemmx illustrated the frustrating problem in women's fashion. Can you relate to this dilemma?
All the same size
Twitter user Chloe shared a photo of seven stacked jeans. They are all size 12, but they are not similar. A pair fits perfectly with her while it is impossible to wear another pair, but they should be the same size.
If you've ever wondered why women are so frustrated with our ready-made sizes – every pair of jeans pictured is a size 12 pic.twitter.com/V88JAPQZTI

Chloe commented, "No wonder women feel so insecure, I had size 10 dresses that fit well, then I try size 14 jeans that do not even go past my hips, it's not right." Change and is not the only woman who feels that way.
"Sizing is stupid"
Women notice the growing frustrations in the fashion industry. For example, it is alleged that different leggings have the same size and cut, but this is not always the case. Instead, women sometimes fit in a small size but can not fit in a large size. How is that when their bodies change?
It does not seem that clothing brands will hear women's requests in the foreseeable future, but that does not mean that women are silent about the issue. Instead, they repeat Chloe's argument and express their concerns in the social media.
Call to action
It's not new for women to ask apparel brands to change their size standards so that women no longer have to feel insecure in a locker room. The general consensus among those who intervened in the diacolo introduced by Chle's tweet was that size 12 should be a size 12, no matter which jeans brand the woman wears.
Twitter users @michelleeb said, "I have clothes in my wardrobe from size 8 to 16, all of which fit in. I can not figure out what size I have." Another Twitter user @Jadeelouuisee shared a picture of her shopping experience and said it was "tragic".
That's tragic, a couple is a size 4 and a couple is a size 10. No difference pic.twitter.com/IXlI8LXrdG
