American clothing sizes are notoriously inconsistent.
Graphic artist Jenna Josepher illustrated the size discrepancies for size 8 women’s pants at major retailers.
The graphic, first published by Racked, reveals that Uniqlo and Old Navy’s sizes tend to run big.
Meanwhile, Forever 21 and H&M run small.
“Whatever the reason, many brands have resorted to labelling larger waist/hip measurements as smaller sizes, hence the sizing confusion,” Racked writes.
