What size are you? Who cares?
It’s just a number.
And an arbitrary one, as well. A size 10 from one manufacturer is a size 8 in another, and what was a few years ago a size 8, is now called a 4 to flatter those fashionistas who are fixated on the smallest possible number.
That’s why you’ll have better luck shopping for something that looks great on you if you shop in a consignment, resale or thrift shop, which will have a wider range of designers/ manufacturers than any new-merchandise store could afford to offer the public.
And that’s also why the most common advice, shopkeeper to shopper, is “Now be sure to check the sizes on either side so you don’t miss anything!”
If it looks good, if it feels good, if you love it, it’s your size.
No one in the world will ever peek inside your clothing and gasp at the number printed there!
