Every girl knows the drill: clothing in stores rarely bear any resemblance to what the label suggests.
Whether it’s a 16 that fits like 14, or a 10 that is definitely not going to fit a 10, we’ve learnt to be wary of the number on the tag.
Which is a sentiment that apparently applies to models, too.
Plus size model and blogger, Tess Holliday, has used a recent Instagram post to demonstrate the difference in plus size sizing.
Along with a photo of various clothing tags with different sizes, Tess comments, “Plus-Sizes are SO inconsistent it's infuriating. In some brands I'm a 2x, in other's a 3x ... Sometimes a 4x!”
“For my crop tops, they are mostly L from Forever 21 … That’s a massive difference!” She goes on to say.
“Basically you can't judge someone's size from photos, (nor should you) it only makes you look petty. At the end of the day, it's how you feel that matters, not the label in your clothes,” she wrote, “I wouldn't care if the headlines said I was a size 0 or 28 model - it doesn't define me.”
