Vanity Sizing the Truth about Clothes Size

Everyone, not just the Plus Size ladies, know this: somehow you always have a new clothing size.What is the reason?

Vanity Sizing the Truth about Clothes Size

Quite simply: in the clothing industry, which wants to give the buyers gladly feel that they buy a “normal” size and no (ihgitt!) Oversize.Vanity Sizing, so this approach was baptized in the US takes place by all dress sizes.A 36 sells better than a 38/40 and so on.

This can hardly be blamed, at least from the strategic point of view, but it is a big blessing for a multitude of women to be able to say “You and the pants are size 38, I wear 42!”

This leads to the fact that you in the same shop, from the same manufacturer times in a pants purely, the next but not even a calf through getting gets.

Vanity sizing, according to a study, can even lead to higher prices, the smaller the size.
