    • Both. Of course, I know that if I gained a little the clothes won’t fit. However, if I didn’t some clothes still don’t fit because it seems the mediums are small and all the large ones are gone and just the small (which look more like x-small) are left.

    • There doesn’t seem to be any standard of sizing.  What is a size 16 in one size might fit like a size 14 in another size.  It’s all too confusing and frustrating.  Buy two t-shirts or pairs of jeans that should be identical and you’ll usually find that they are not the same.

    • Different brands definitely run different from each other. I just grab a couple sizes and see which works.

    • I have noticed that true American made clothing is usually right on target with the sizing, whereas clothing made overseas is absolutely not, and of course, there are exceptions.  I hate most style of clothing anymore, so I stick with very basic styles in jeans, tops, dresses, skirts and jazz everything up with accessories.

    • This is a great question! I know I have definitely gotten bigger therefore it seem like my clothes have gotten smaller.  

      I agree with Marya that American made clothing is usually right on target with sizing. Clothes  that are made over seas are not. It also depends on what vendors you buy, different vendors of the same size will fit you differently.

    • Thanks for your comments! It’s frustrating when you have to go up 1 or 2 sizes because some vendors make their clothes so small which sometimes gives you the feeling that you’ve gotten bigger when you haven’t. Unfortunately, there are just a few vendors that make clothing right on target or bigger.
      I love to shop, but trying on clothes is usually a disappointment for me.  

      Mary, I agree that most style of clothing isn’t flattering. Your suggestion of accessorizing is a great idea!
