It might sound like a cliche, but the struggle to find any sort of rhyme or reason behind clothing sizes is very real.
It’s almost as if a random-number generator was spitting out sizes from thin air and assigning them to clothes.
It’s not just an American thing. It seems to happen to women all over the world, and as mentioned, H&M has a pretty big role to play in people’s frustrations.
raise your hand if you think shops like H&M and Topshop have ridiculously small sizes and it’s unhealthy for women 🙋🏻

There’s the practical aspect, which is frustrating at best. But then there’s another factor at play which is more subversive but even more troubling.
