Could be that your 14's are ladies and the Mossimo 17's are juniors...I run into this a lot. Ladies (US) sizes usually run even numbers 6-8-10-12-14 while Juniors run odd numbers, 5-7-9-11-15-17. I too wear a 14 ladies (old navy jeans, etc) but a 17 or 19 juniors (17s are pretty tight on me too). I have not tried the Mossimo jeans specifically, but that's my thought...

The entire brand tends to run small on me as well. And yes, they are ladies.

I agree with dani4a. I think they do run smaller.

That might explain why I never get anything from Target. Whenever I try anything there, I get depressed... so I tend to stay away from their clothing section. :P

I find this interesting. I wear a size 17 in mossimo both jeans and shorts, but other brands of junior size 17s I cannot fit into because they are too small. I tend to wear size 20 in most other brands. I definatly could not fit into a size 14 in any brand right now even if it is ladies. Maybe it is the way I am built, but I kinda thought mossimo ran big.

Yeah, for me the ladies run big, and the jrs. run maybe a teeny tiny bit big. I think it's a body shape thing because a lot of their stuff gaps at the waist for me (like 3 or 4 inches even when it fits everywhere else).

You could be right. It may be a body shape thing. I have a large stomach and tiny thighs, and while mossimo jeans always fit in the legs, i'm usually a couple inches away from zipping them.

At Express and American Eagle I wear size 12 jeans. I only have shorts from Target - both Mossimo - size 13. I also have all the curves any woman could possibly have - I'm not missing boobs, butt, hips, or thighs!!! I really find it amazing some sizes that people are - it truly blows me out of the water because seriously - with my height and when I was between 200-227lbs...I was always wearing a 16-18 - I don't have a clue how someone 5 inches shorter than me who weighs over 200lbs can wear a 17 in anything!!! It's just a curiousity issue here now.....I know we all have different body shapes - but it is still so freakin weird for me when I read about different peoples height, weight, and sizes.

Anyways...I think Mossimo run normal...

I don't know about Mossimo jeans in particular, but I do tend to have to add 3 when I convert from misses to juniors sizes (I'm a 12 misses and 15 juniors, and used to be a 14 misses and 17 juniors).

l00py, I think a UK 12 is a US 10.
