>Objects in the mirror may appear smaller…

>Long ago — when you bought jeans at Army Navy stores and you weren’t in the Army or the Navy — I vaguely recall buying women’s jeans using men’s waist sizes.

Today, the ultra-pricey women’s fashion jeans are being sold by similar numbers. The problem is, what’s a 30 in one brand is a 32 in another, and so on. The online fashion site Adasa.com has been putting together a guide to sizing for many of the major brands (7 for All Mankind, Frankie B, etc.). However, when you see that a size 10 is a 31, check the General Sizing Guide above to make sure you correspond to Adasa’s definition of a 10 — because it runs a good bit smaller than a 10 in a non-premium line such as Eddie Bauer or The Gap.
