You guys are freaking weird. You ALWAYS have to do things differently!
Can someone please explain to me what these sizes mean
0
-0
00
And to what number it equals when we take the [NORMAL] sizes 36-42?
There are also numbers like 6 and 8 and 12, which would make sense to me if 00 didnt exist.

My heerrooo


So....is 00 = 32?

And what the fuck is -0? or just 0? There is no such European size as 30.

I'd explain them to you if i had the slightest fucking clue what's going on. :P Apparently I go from size 00 to size 8, pants wise. How that happens.. I'm not sure.

gurrrgle.

Haha well yeah, I know that most companies fuck sizes up a lot, I "have" many sizes myself, but I mean, there must be a general size you go with, right? For me, that's 38, for you it's probably 34/36.
I still dont get the deal with 00 and 0 :(

Sunny

00 is smaller than 0, it's all i know. why.. no one knows.

also that sizing table Ricky provided is completely wrong regarding shoe sizes. wtf.

Nina

Oh, it is? What is the correct one if you dont mind me asking? I'm so sick of not knowing, especially when I want to order something over the net. It took me long enough to figure out how much I weight/how tall I am in those faggotted American measures... grrrAAHH.

Sunny

see.. there is just no way that size 8 American (shoe) is size 41 European. Size 41 Euro is HUMONGOUS.. gigantor.. and some of my shoes are a size 8. And I'm an European 37/38. Not FORTY for the love of god!

To confuse you further, the jeans I'm currently wearing claim to be a size 28 (WTF ZOMG), as are all my diesel and 7 jeans. My forever21 pants are a size 0. My alloy pants are size 6.

i give up.

isn't there a difference between male/female shoe sizes in the US?

Sunny
12-18-2005, 11:57 AM
yes there is. i don't think that changes anything though.

Nina

:[

The most ridiculous thing about all of this is when one company has different sizes IN ITSELF. My H&M tops go from 36 to 40, and I'm not a fatty-40-sizer dammit :E

P.S.WeHaveTheSameShoeSize :D

Sunny
12-18-2005, 11:58 AM
woot woot! *wiggles toes* =p

and haha i agree about H&M, wtf... except here my tops go from 2 to 8. OR 10 EVEN. bah.

ahh confusion.

rant:

Also, bras. I mean, my bra size is the same everywhere, which is already a freaking wonder...but H&M....nooo, H&M *must* be extra different to the rest again and have different sizes when it comes to underwear. Grah.

</rant>

regarding bra size: i never know whether i'm a 32 or a 34. Some brands size 34 is way big. Some others size 32 makes it impossible for me to breathe. I wear VS 34 and AP 34.. other brands, it's a total mystery. ;x

OMG, H&M is terrible size-wise. Sometimes it makes me think: OMGFAT!!! and then sometimes their 34 just falls down my ass//is all sloppy everywhere, and there is no smaller one, so that's all frustrating too when you like it. Uuuurgh.

It's because Swedes spend all their time learning English, that none of them actually learn to count.

And this threads makes me all fuzzily warm inside due to American cultural imperialism.

And don't get me started on bra's. They don't even have my size anywhere in Holland where bra's around 847845 each. I love underwear and stuff, but bra-shopping is hell.

Nina

But Tizz, thats cuz yer super thin and have super hot b00bz.
Which reminds me...let's secks.

...how THIN are you?!
lykeomg&stuff. I'm jealous!
I hate how my environment makes me feel sometimes...I mean, I'm a size 38 but still feel fat most of the time, especially after entering kiddy stores with kiddy sizes (nothing against thin people, I'm just jealous).
bah :[

You know you love it ;)

And Nina, those numbers really depend on the chest size (as in...your ribcase), I know skinny people with 36, and when I was fat I had 34, so it really doesn't have anything to do with fatness in some cases.

Edit: and she meant bra-34 and 34, that would be 70 and 75 here

JoY

I don't have many problems when it comes to figuring out the sizes; whichever is sold out, is my size.

I hate being so standard.

Nina

Haha, well obviously.
No but I mean, in general I usually dont fit in a 70 without feeling like this whole thing is gonna rip apart. Erm. Bad.

Sunny

Nina, believe me, I feel your pain when it comes to feeling like a fatso because of weird sizing. Like, neither you or I are fat by any stretch of the imagination, but... one day I was buying undies at this little store at the only size that somewhat fit me was XL.

EXTRA FUCKING LARGE. how gross is that.

so of course my reaction was "zomg im teh fatz". :/ bah. almost made me wanna go on a diet. *almost* ;p

Nina
12-18-2005, 12:32 PM
But wtf, that store is really messed up then. Was it really, entirely not a store for children? Haha but now that I think about it, even in kiddy sizes you aint XL :P
Damn. What are sizes for when everyone changes them?

Sunny
12-18-2005, 12:35 PM
i'd hope it wasn't for kids cause it was all lacy and sexy-like. haha.

and i'm XL in Gap Kids... bwahahh! i'm a BIG BABY!

and yeah, sizes seem kind of useless really. the ONLY time i'm ever sure what size to get is when my options are limited "S M L XL XXL" in tops/shirts. Cause size S tops always fit me. amazingly.

rahHH!

Not FORTY for the love of god!What? Size 41 Euro is not humongous! It's 8.5 American and well...maybe I have enormous feet, but I don't think so. :o

awww :P i'm not proportional though.. i got the big ol butt and not that many pants fit me right. :/

and Tired_Of_You, i dunno, to me 41 was always real big. weird.

Nina
12-20-2005, 03:29 AM
41 is pretty big. maybe we should all consider that Sunny is about 160cm, while I'm 5cm taller than her...so, we ain't really all that tall 'n stuff.
