I believe you, because I have always been one of those people who looks 10-20 lighter than I weigh.

What I don't understand is, how at this size I can fit in size 4 at many clothing stores? What do all these petite little chicks who are 5'4" and say, 115-120 pounds do? Shop in the children's section? I think the vanity sizing is ridiculous here in the US - when I buy clothing in Europe it equates to a size 8, which I think is more like the old 8 used to be over here.
