I'll never understand women's sizing for clothing. I'm by no means a big girl. I'm 5'4", 125 lbs, 36-28-39. I've got my curves, and I'm so very blessed to have them in all the right places.

Here's the deal.

In women's t-shirts, I have to buy a size large. I'm not a large person. What do large people buy? I'm even in the US, where we keep getting bigger and bigger, yet little me wears a large?

In jeans I wear a size 9, but if I wear guys jeans, I fit a 31 comfortably (see: slightly baggy), so I wonder why women's sizes start so small. Guys jeans generally start at 30, maybe 29. Any smaller than that, and you're in kids sizes! Why have women decided they want to make themselves feel fat by making the sizes disproportionate? Logically, a little girl's 16 should be smaller than a women's 0. That's how it works in the mens department. Oddly enough, I can squeeze myself into that size 16. w.t.f. That shouldn't happen.

Does anyone know of an actual reason as to why the sizes are so weird?

Actually, the sad thing is, with girls' clothes starting to emulate adult fashions more and more, I can find things in the girls' section that fits AND doesn't make me look like I'm mentally still in junior high.

But it grieves me to think that there are actual little girls who are trying to show off cleveage they don't even have yet.
