I said, " A diet of cheeseburgers and shakes! "

Oh, and if you're still obsessing about size, you might as well acknowledge your suckiness and bow down to my niece. She's got the tiniest little figure, perfectly formed, looks good in everything, everyone loves her and I can reach around her waist and touch my hands. She's at least 90 pounds lighter than everyone on here, if not more. Oh, also she's 2 months old. Did I not mention that?

My theory has been women's clothes designers are gay and angry at women.
Result = bizarre clothing sizes and pants with no pockets.
My SO can find no holes in this theory.

according to my after christmas shopping observations, i wear either a size 0, 1, 3, or 5 in pants depending on the brand and how much crack the designer was smoking and how much meth the sweatshop workers were plowing through on the day they were constructed.

TheOther: Ramen_Hotep: fredklein: I think the headline should be "Womens clothing sizes make no sense".

Mens sizes uses...inches.

Men's sizes are also vanity sized. Your 42 inch waist is actually cut to fit 44 inches.

Just like my penis...wait...did that come out right?


Not if you're two inches short of filling the void.

Men's trousers can be all over the place too, and they're supposed to be a system based on actual real-world measuring units (and that's ignoring the common practice of vanity sizing that happens to men too).

They whole system is daft anyway, because very few styles of mens trousers in 2012 are worn on the waist, but closer to the hips. You're not a 36 inch waist, you have 36 inch hips, and a 48inch waist, you fat slob.

That's why I have a penis. It automatically converts clothing sizes from arbitrary "sizes" into rational measurements
