Name brand "designer" clothes seem to be VERY generous in sizing. Chicos has avoided the nasty size issue by making clothes in sizes 0, 1, 2 and 3.
Same goes for non-designer clothing, I reckon. Kathy has always joked that if you wanted a smaller size you only had to spend twice or three times the money for the same quality with a different size label on it
