So I'm not the only one who feels huge at Zara?
Racked and social shopping network, Fitbay, teamed up to do a study on which stores' sizes run big and which ones' run small. They looked at what percentage of women wear a small at each store and found that there can be as much as a 30% difference!
I personally agree with this nice little chart they made. I usually size up at Zara but I almost always size down at Banana Republic and J. Crew. I used to be really self-conscious about my size, sometimes squeezing myself into a dress even if I could barely breathe. Now I live by the mantra "you're the only one who knows the size on the tag." Everyone else just sees how it looks on you.
P.S. This article is sadly so true for me.
