How ‘bout, instead of designing advanced body scanning machines to tell us what sizes to buy in a given store, we just effing start using actual measurements in clothing sizes like they do for teh dudez? I know it might offend our fragile sensibilities to know the actual circumference of our waists and the length of our inseam, but it would make shopping a buttload easier. We don’t need new technology. The technology has existed since measuring tape. We need to rethink the marketing strategies corporations are using against women.
YES. I would love to into a store and be able to pick up the right pants on the first go. I’m sick of having to bring three different sizes into the fitting room because stores can’t normalize that shit. Between vanity sizing and stretchy fabrics, the numbers they use are practically meaningless.
YES. i would love for them to use actual sizes on women’s pants, not this 0 and up bullshit. its way too vague and varied between brands and fabrics. also, i feel like a creep when people ask for my size and i essentially tell them my tag says NONEXISTANT. blah.
um they do size a lot of womens jeans like they do mens, like my acnes and all my raw denim are sized like that, its so much more accurate and it means i can get pants that are long enough for me :3
I don’t get all the supposed frustration for women. You’re the consumer: the power to buy or not buy is all yours. If you don’t like a brand using 0/2/4 sizing, then don’t buy from them. If you don’t like a brand that uses a lot of stretch fabric, then don’t buy from them. It’s a little silly that people find themselves so powerless in the face of a diverse marketplace when the entire point is that you get to choose exactly what you want. If you settle for something that isn’t what you want, then why would you complain about having to settle?
“Backers of the Arizona law said they were pleased with disagreements among the appeals court judges. Judge Carlos Bea issued a partial dissent in which he criticized the majority’s argument by quoting from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.””—Well, that’s cool, I guess. I mean, who needs scholarly legal writings to deal with complex issues of immigration and racism when you can quote from a book involving a girl using a flamingo as a croquet mallet. I mean, whatever, right?
