What's up with clothes sizing these days ? It seems they are cutting things way smaller. although I am a big girl, my measurements really haven't changed in the past decade. At about 230, I have worn a size XL top for the last 10-15 years. Lately, size XL is like a sausage casing on me, and anything new I buy is now 2XL, which is Distressing to me cause I always considered people that were 2X to be OBESE.... OMG, am O now Obese ?

How can I be when I haven't changed ? Please tell me they are cutting the garments smaller and using less fabric ? I am a confident person with a good self image but if I am really a 2X, I will have to drink a bottle of Drano... Say it aint so ! :eek:

 

IS THIS ME ????

It is not you, jjk. I am 6'4" have a 36" sleeve, and a 46" chest. Have worn an extra large tall for YEARS. Although I have gained weight, I have not done so in my chest, arms, shoulders, or legs. I ordered a size extra large tall long-sleeved T shirt. When it arrived I tried it on and found the arms and shoulders to be skin-tight and the sleeves to be an inch too short. It is not made of a stretchy material, so it fits very uncomfortably. I exchanged it, only to find the replacement fit the same way. I exchanged the replacement and ordered another one (just to see if it was an issue with that color and style) and they fit the same way. I tried on an older T-shirt and it fit correctly. It is no longer as roomy in the waist (I have filled it out a bit...working on shedding the extra heft), but it fits! The others went back.
