Size is Just a Number

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! 

Today I'm sharing another post to have to do with my school program. This one was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. As we all know size really is just a number and really has nothing to do with the size of yourself or what others may say. For this assignment we had to travel to a large retail store, Luckily I work at a very large format store (Antrhopologie and Co), so I didn't have to travel very far at all. Having tried on a bunch of things I did end up purchasing the items I tried on in the same size. (I'm not sharing the size because that's not important). What was Important was to find out that the same size in a different shirt doesn't fit exactly the same! In fact I found some were much bigger and others way to small. I started wondering why that was? Well as I know with say jeans I know I am for sure this set size in almost all jeans but in the Anthropologie brand (Pilcro) I was almost two sizes smaller than what my normal size was! To find that almost shocking it was sort of nice. Why that was, had to due to the nature of the fabric of the jean. The fabric they used tends to stretch out therefore you have to size down. Now with the shirts that i tried on I chose that were somewhat similar, both the same Size but totally fit differently. 

After my little try on session I have decided that after doing this for research for class that, when shopping for clothes you really do need to try on the garmet before buying and making sure it truly fits you and your body type. I really try never to pay attention to what the label says about the size and just go with what fits comfotable and looks good on yourself. If the garmet does all of the above then it's simply meant to be!
