You walk into the men's section of a clothing store and find pants are sized 28, 30, 32, 34 etc. You go into a different store and find the same. Then you walk into a women's store and try on a pair of pants and find the sizes, 000, 00, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 etc. You try on a pair of pants and determine you are size 6. The you walk into another store and determine you are size 4, then a size 8 all in different stores. What is going on??
First of all why are woman's sizes so different?
And why on earth do sizes like 0 even exist?

Then at least take a look at this 4 minute blog by Laci Green about how arbitrary retail sizes pressure women and girls to believe they have to have this thin, yet curvy and essentially impossible beauty standard.
