Shell Game

Was reminded of this while posting a comment on another LJ.

While I was on vacation, I cleaned out my closet. A lot of clothes that got moved to Utah I didn't really need, so I decdied to get rid of a bunch of stuff. I came across a kilted skirt I'd bought when I was 14 16 -- it was a size 10. I'm 43 now, and a size 4, but that skirt didn't fit! It was a size too small. So that's how much they've changed clothing sizes over the years. I knew they had, but it was the first time I'd had actual proof in my hands. If they'd kept sizes the same, that means I'd be a size 12 today.
