What size are you? That’s a pretty loaded question if you ask me. ‘I’m a size small for the most part, if it’s an Australian brand I’m usually a 2-4, if it’s European I’m usually a 6, sometimes I’m an extra small since I am petite, probably a medium if it’s a crop top.’
You can go to the nearest mall and find that you can probably fit into three different size categories depending on the brand of the items. Here are some pictures of me doing just that. While my size sometimes does range depending on my weight, I am usually pretty consistent.
These Zara pants always run a bit small on me. I absolutely love them, but I usually have to go up a size for comfort
This coat was actually my grandma’s, I’m not sure where she got it but it is a size 8 which is way too big. It really fit me like a 4 and was only a little oversized
This sweater is a Large from Forever 21. I loved the sleeves and tried to wear it as a dress since I am so short. I still have to wear shorts underneath, but it fit me really well.
These shorts are a small from Zaful, I should have opted for an extra small as they fit like a size 4, but this was my first time ordering so smalls are usually my safe zone.
I’ve learned that when shopping online, it is important to read the model’s measurements. I have become accustomed to knowing what size I am when shopping within a certain brand, and that it is better to try something on to see how it will fit you. Every brand is a little different, and that is great because everyone’s body is a little different. You have to find not only what you like, but what works for you.
So tell me, what size are you?
