We should all remember that there is not a standard sizing chart for women’s clothing. There is inconsistency from one manufacturer to the next and even with the same manufacturers offerings. You also have to factor in how a garment was intended to fit. It can be a body conforming fit (aka body con), relaxed or oversized. Some companies have their own sizing methodology (CHICO’S for example) and they create a conversion chart to relate their sizes to what is usually expected. CHICO’S, and others, that do this are really just playing games. I mean, would you rather be told that you wear a Size 4 or a Size 18?

Oversizing presents some interesting possibilities. From the CHICO’S sizing chart, I would wear their Size 4. I have several of their silk jackets that I bought from online thrift vendors, but since they were designed to be oversized, I can wear their Size 3 with no problem. This is what makes going by the measurements, and not the numerical or alpha sizing, so important.

What I would say is ignore the numerical and alpha size designations. Measure your body and compare them to the stated measurements of the item. Many of the vendors who work through Poshmark, Etsy and others don’t want to include measurements. I have to be really interested in an item before I will ask for measurements. Otherwise I will just skip over those vendors as I just consider them to be either not knowledgeable about the sizing of women’s clothing or lazy or perhaps both. Either way, they don’t deserve my money.
