Blame the Pants

Here’s one solid reason why you shouldn’t judge your weight or size on the measurements of clothing… Manufacturers can be flat-out liars!

On Esquire‘s blog, a survey was taken and found that there was a 5 inch difference between the seven 36″ waist pants they tested!

The retailers want you to feel a certain way in their pants. If they want you to feel skinnier, they are more generous in the waist line; Others encourage you to lose weight because the tightness of their pants suggest you are overweight.

My advice would to be conscious of your body and be courageous when it comes to shopping for clothes; don’t be afraid to try the next size up! It might not be you! It could be the pants!
