Okay, so I have measurements of 40-35-40 , which is obviously pretty big right ? Well , according to most size charts I should be xl. Well when I go shopping , I can always fit into mediums ! I don't understand it. like yesterday I was at forever 21 and I tried on this dress
in a size medium and it fit perfectly ! wtf is going on. it gets really annoying. maybe I'm not measuring myself right ? if it makes a difference I'm 145lbs and 5'2. whenever I shop I usually were mediums , sometimes smalls and sometimes larges

Clothing stores and clothing labels deliberately put the sizes wrong, because female psychology makes them buy things that fit if the size is smaller than expected.
A girl goes into shop A, tries on a dress that she likes. It's a size 16 and fits perfectly. She is upset, because this means she is a size 16. Even though she likes the dress, she will not buy it because it is damaging to her self-esteem
The same girl goes into shop B. Tries on a similar dress. It's listed as a size 12.
She'll buy it.1
