These sizes change within each store/brand. How do they measure? What is a size 0? A 20? And with pants, why can't they just give us the inches? It's so much easier to shop that way. I like the XS,S,M,L,XL rating, just not the size 2 or whatnot rating. And before you jump into any conclusions, I am not extremely fat nor extremely skinny. I can wear anything a from a 2 to 8.
It's really not that hard. I personally never have a problem with finding the right size pants or what not. It also depends on if the brand goes by European or American sizes. A size 0 in the US is a size 4 in Europe.
A little trick that my dad taught me: Take your arm and put your hand into a fist, so it's from your elbow to the end of your fist, and put it into the part of the pants that will rest on your waist. I hope I explained that okay. But using that little trick really helps me.
Yeah, that's always annoying. I can never find jeans that fit well. I've bought pairs anywhere from size 0 to 9, literally. And then I have a pair that's supposed to be a long size, but they fit as capris on me. Oh well, what can you do?
Some jeans do do the size instead of the 0,2,4 etc. I use to look at Silver Jeans for girls at the Buckle and they would have 26x34 or something like that. I think it is already that way for guys.
Also I can wear anything from a size 2-6 but size 4 and 6 seems loose and size 2 seems really tight at first but after a few hours of wearing it it is super loose. I have no idea why that happens to me. And for jeans size I would pick 2 SHORT and for the other jean size I wear 26x30
