Man im so sick of different sizes.. I hate that in wal mart for pants.. i could be from a 23 to 14 (no joke i have em all) and that there shirts i have from a 3x to a med.. Why such a drastic change... Like for instance.. i bought a dress at wally world the other day and it was a womans large.. then a week before that i bought a dress and it was 2x... I dont get it.. it sickens me... It happens at every store i go to.. Urban planet..(is really bad for this too..) Suzy shier.. (bad)..... i wish people who made clothes could get together.. and pick.. so that you didn't have to try on a billion sizes.. argh
oh well... i guess i cant win em all
thanks for letting me rant... it drives me freakin mental!

This is the price we pay for the fact that you can go to a Wal-Mart and for $4 buy a shirt that was sewn together in Indonesia from fabric woven in China out of cotton grown in India. And it costs us about 30 minutes of labor at minimum wage. That's mind-boggling, really, and part of how they keep prices so low is shoddy quality control.

I understand so much. My favorite pair of jeans were a gift from a friend here at 3FC actually and they are not a Wal Mart brand and they are a size 14, love them! When I go to Wal Mart, I am between 14-18, it makes me so upset most times which is prolly one of the biggest reasons I rarely shop at all lol *hugs*

Walmart is cheap, but I don't like the quality of their clothes. I'm tough on my clothes, and the Walmart stuff just doesn't hold up for me.

Yes, this is maddening! It's one of many reasons that I do not enjoy shopping.

I'm having mental issues with the whole vanity sizing business. At Land's End (Sears) I feel awesome! The same size does not fit at Meijer. :rolleyes: I'm now wearing the same size I was in before I got pregnant 10 years ago, but am I really??? I'm not sure. LOL! I think vanity sizing has happened in the last 10 years.

I hate sizing differences, I really do. I was looking at clothes in Goodwill today and I really hated having to go through my mental list of "this brand fits small, that brand fits large, I don't know how that brand fits, etc." Somewhere out there exists a standardized list of clothing measurements, and I wish that someone would make all the clothing producers stick to that standardized list. That way we can walk into a store and have a good idea how the clothes will fit.

It is definitely frustrating. And it's not even like you can count on even being consistently the same size in the same brand. I have some Landsend tops that are way too big in a 3X so when I got a bathing suit, I figured a 20W should be fine. Nope, too small. I also have some pants and skirts and bathing suit bottoms from them in 3 different sizes that all fit.
