I've seen a few articles lately on the issue of vanity sizing...
What is vanity sizing?
Well, according to Wikepedia: "Vanity sizing, also known as size inflation is used to refer to the phenomenon of clothing of the same nominal size becoming larger over time."
I encountered vanity sizing today at Kohls. I am ususally a Med/Large in most tops....well, this sweater fit perfectly...and guess what size? Petite Small. Crazy!
