I have a problem with sizing charts and its, lets say ‘aura’ (namely online sizing charts). It categorizes people into a particular group, and more often than not, into unrealistic standards. It asks for conformity. If you fit into this, you’re this. If you don’t fit into this, well then good luck out there. I dislike how they don’t take into account other body shapes. I am a pear shape with basically no bosom, so sizing charts for one pieced items never work out. And no one ever talks about such a body shape, but that’s another tangent. I understand a sizing chart is a rough estimate of how an item is to fit, but the lack of flexibility in those listed measurements bothers me. However, my main problem is with the stigma around the idea of fitting into a particular size and what that means to society.
I dislike how a number or a letter on a label has the ability to reduce us into self-conscious, confidence-lacking individuals. It’s silly. Why put so much time and effort into a number or letter? What is your true source of happiness in all this?
And then a couple years ago vanity sizing became a thing. Another can of worms.
This is a big topic, so here’s just a little bit of what’s on my mind. What are your thoughts? Leave them below!Follow @themediocritypr
