Some Women Love To Go Shopping
They spend hours wondering through stores trying on different things while for others, nothing could be worse than facing a shopping expedition, searching through rails and undressing in hot changing rooms.
Each to their own and whatever works for you but wouldn’t it be much easier if you knew exactly what size to pick up?
So for those who love shopping, it would mean a quicker, more direct way of selecting what you like and for those who find shopping boring and unpleasant, it’s a simple solution to pick your size and not have to think twice.
This is where the problem lies and we all come across this label difference regularly not only between brands but between styles in the same shop.
So What’s In A Number?
Should we sweat about the figure printed on that small label at the back? Do we wear it out for all to see? Is it really that important?
I personally feel that people should choose what to buy based on their shape, their lifestyle and what makes them feel good. Unfortunately to do that sometimes, you have to try on 2 or 3 sizes of the same garment to get the right fit.
Then you do it all over again the next time because you’re in a different shop or buying a different item. It’s frustrating to say the least.
I recently wrote a piece on label sizes in shops and it got a huge response here
But getting to the reason behind why this is upsetting is important too. Some people will shop in particular stores as their label sizes run “big” so they take a smaller size in that particular label.
Okay There May Be A Feel Good Factor.
But honestly, if you look fantastic in whatever you bought, does it matter that it’s a size 10, 12, 14 or 16? Does it matter that you are wearing a size 18 dress and knocking the socks off those around you?
Not in my book. As a stylist who regularly shops with customers, I want them to get a second look when they walk in a room. That’s a successful job for me and for the client.
Not what size she’s wearing.
