“Delusions of Grandeur”

5 thoughts on ““Delusions of Grandeur””

  1. I wonder what post you were reading. I work in the industry and have watched my dress size go from a size 6 to a size 2, my jeans shrink from a 28 to 26 and my shoes go from 8.5 to 7.5 and no, I’m not losing weight! When I travel too, it’s interesting to see how much smaller those 26 jeans suddenly become! Methinks manufacturers jig the sizes for us Americans! 🙂

    1. This sounds like a good problem to have! When designers use fit models that are a size 2 with no chest or hips and now plus size models are considered a 6-8, it’s troublesome, especially when they try to size their designs up. Proportions seem off.

      1. The proportions are off big time! You can also see it regionally. Los Angeles designers like Meghan Fabulous for instance typically design for a D cup bust and up to accommodate for breast augmentation. Thanks for the link!

      2. I’m imagining that with the rapid changes happening in manufacturing, the traditional system of measurements may become a thing of the past. Fingers crossed!
