Understanding UK Dress Sizes
Even within brands, the number in those labels seems to be shrinking from year to year. While it always feels good to think that your dress size has gone down, you may wonder how it could be possible when you haven't managed to lose even a single pound. What you're noticing is a not-so-new marketing technique known as "vanity sizing.
Is there really any size difference between the two different dresses? Of course, there isn't, but, somehow, we all feel slimmer with that smaller number embossed on the designer's label. In the s and s, standard US dress sizes were formulated from statistical data.
At that time, they were very similar to British dress sizes. However, due to vanity sizing, the current US dress sizes have little or no meaning. In fact, these arbitrary numbers only serve as a general guideline. Long gone are the days when the man in your life could present you with a special dress at the last minute for a surprise night out with the knowledge that it would fit perfectly. Today's woman must spend hours in the dressing room to achieve the same effect.
At the current time we have little evidence as to how widespread the use of any of the aforementioned sizes is, therefore they only get this brief mention.
Part of the reason for shrinking sizes is that women feel increasing pressure to be smaller. Am I a size anymore?! I don't think so but I need the measurements so I can't convince myself otherwise! Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? I'm a 10 on top and a 12 on bottom - but depending on the clothes, I've had to buy an 8 in tops and a 14 in bottoms. But in some jeans, a 10 is too small and a 12 is too big sadly there's no such thing as a UK size At the end of the day it's only numbers and if the fit of the clothes means you have to buy a size bigger and that bothers you, you can always cut the label out!
I went to pumpkin patch and they do small, medium, large etc, I was a before I had my son like you so I wore the Medium sizes. Also I got some clothes from next and peacocks. But like you said the best thing is to try them on. Mothercare clothes are great too. If you get the size 12 trousers they have panels on the front that expand with the bump and support and also there are different ones that extend on the sides that don't go over your bump.
If you pick up a mothercare catalogue there's a really good bit in the front of the book about size guide and different types of maternity trousers Xx.
Everyone is a different shape and in the UK people who are actually a 16 still squeeze themselves into a size 10 cos that is what they were 10 years ago and still think they are! Not a pretty sight at all. Then go into another shop and pick up a size twelve and its more like a ten. I really do think the fashion industry have gone slightly mad as the sizes that seemed right ten years ago now seem alot smaller than they were.
That way, assuming a simple two-inch grade, if the standard says size 8 measurements should be and size 10 should be , Company A might use as its basis for size 10, and Company B might assign to a 10, while at the same time Company C could manufacture a size 8 using I’m hesitant to take the survey. Do you want to know what the current customer buying a size 10 or 12 is? (Shock of all shocks-I am + and am currently wearing a size 10 from the store) or what we envision a size 10 to be because I certainly wouldn’t envision myself to be a Misses and womens US dress sizes (also used in Canada) with bust, waist and hip measurement tables for Misses sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 & 20, Womens sizes 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, plus a brief explanation of junior, petite and half sizes.
