Vanity sizing.

Bought a pair of jeans today.

First time I've fit into a size 8 since I was about 15.  I've put on a couple of pounds in the last two years too.  I'm weighing in at the upper end of normal for me.

Somehow, I think something weird is going on.

Do people really buy this, or do they just get frustrated when they have to make the fourth trip to the change room like I did today?

Haven't seen jeans as a size since heaven knows when - I buy mine waist and leg length. And that's frustrating enough.Should start adding crotch length. Absolute hate it when the zip is two inches long.GM

Shopping in general is a torture for me, and sizes in particular. When I find something that fits, I buy several. Why is it so complicated??? (Sorry, venting.)

JG, I hate shopping, I have to confess, and I too have bought several of something I like. Vent on, my dear...go for it.
