Standardize Sizes Please!

Yesterday at Saks Fifth avenue with a fabulous new French client I realized just how badly the fashion industry needs standard clothing sizing. I took notes as to each designer and which size she needed.

Here are my notes:

A Catherine Malandrino dress purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue for a client

Jean Paul Gautier XL
Roberto Cavailli 44
Catherine Malandrino M
Not your daughters jeans 4
AG jeans 29
Max Mara 40
Jill Sander 38
Elie Tahari Small or 4
Zac Posen 6 or 8
Spanx Small
Ongossamer Large
Dolce & Gabbana 42
Akris 6.

All this conflicting size information is enough to render one crazy. Thank god for note taking in my blackberry. But seriously, how can one woman be all these different sizes?

As a consumer, it just proves that size means nothing so leave the hangups behind.

At least my client has a new amazing wardrobe!
