LOVE this article so very much, as body image has been an intense struggle in my life. It has always frustrated me immensely that I can be a size 14 in one store and a plus size 2x in another….. it makes it very difficult to buy clothing – especially for us curvy women who don’t have a remotely straight body type.

In Japan, the highest dress size displayed is a 6, mostly you find clothes under 2.

I really actively try to not let clothing sizes bother me. I’ve been everything from an XS to a XXL, and I’ve been pretty much the same weight and size for at least the last 10 years of my life (pregnancies aside). But I totally get how the tags can still play perception/mind games.
