Understanding Women’s Clothing Sizes - as part of the Women's Style series by GeoBeats. Hi, I am Erica Lurie, designer here at Garnish in Portland, Oregon. We are going to talk a little bit about women sizing. This has become a really confusing issue over a last few years for a couple of reasons. One, some brands are making their sizing what is called vanity sizing. So if you used to be an 8 now you may even be a zero. The other confusing thing is part of the reason which is actually happening is that women and the general population are getting bigger and so the sizing is having to accommodate for that. So when you are shopping for clothing my suggestion is to go into a shop and just pull pieces that you think might work and start trying things on. Stop looking at the tags, stop looking at what size you think you are, and just really try things on and be critical of the fit.
