Sizing is arbitrary. I’m considered a petite in some brands and a medium in others. I’ve worn dresses that are size 2 and others that are size 6. I’ve worn size 9 jeans and size 26. And frankly, in a society that equates smallness with beauty, I wasted too many days pairing my self-worth with the number inside of a garment. Over time, the sizing of brands has shifted and expectations of women become more and more unrealistic, providing us with a no-win, moving goalpost based on a broken definition of beauty. I never want other women to feel less than because of an arbitrary number that often changes.
