This. All of this is why I hate shopping. I am tall enough that petites don't fit and usually kids stuff doesn't either, but thin enough that nothing else does. And yes, companies have changed their sizes a lot. One example is my favorite pair of jeans ever came from a second hand store, but they were Eddie Bauer brand so I went into the store to try to find out if I could get more like them. Of course they didn't make them any more, but I thought if they fit so well, I may as well try on some of their newer styles. My second hand perfectly fitting pair said size 6. So I grabbed several different styles in size 6 and headed to the dressing room. They were all huge! So was size 4. And 2, the smallest size they offered, was still really loose on me. I complained and a kind sales lady informed me that they had changed their sizing in the last year after surveying their customers to find out what size they all thought they were. I'm sure it's working for them, but they won't get my money as the smallest size they have now is still too big for me. And the same has to be true for at least some other women. It really sucks.
