The phrase “jeans shopping” is liable to strike fear into any woman’s heart. You go into a jeans aisle, you might never come out again. There are so many different cuts and sizes, and the number labels seemingly don’t mean anything. That’s true for all of women’s clothing sizes, not just jeans.
Well, thanks to one Twitter user’s viral photo, you now know that the numbers game is not just in your head.
Chloe Martin, 18, posted a photo of six pairs of jeans laid on top of one another. She wrote, “Incase [sic] you’ve ever wondered why women get so frustrated with our clothing sizes — every pair of jeans pictured, is a size 12.”
The six pairs of pants are noticeably different in size. Like, several inches different. They can’t possibly all be the same size, and yet they are. It’s like a cruel joke!
Chloe’s tweet has almost 300,000 likes and counting, because this is a problem that most women deeply relate to.
