{ Always a Bridesmaid, Only Once a Bride ... }

... I guess that's a good thing, right? Well, at least the "right" way, huh?

My sister and I went to try on bridesmaids dresses today ... woo-hoo. Here is what it looks like:

This is style number 8033 from Jasmine Bridal in Lavender Ice. My sister is wearing the same dress, but in "Sage." On top of the dress being over-priced, I also *hate* trying these things on! I know from prior experience that these things run small, but still. I mean, where do they come up with these sizes? I know that womens sizes are already a little wacky being that arbitrary numbers are just assigned to set of measurements, but the dress was 4 sizes larger than the last pair of jeans that I bought. If our sizing system isn't going to be based on measurements (and I think that it should be), can't we standardize the sizes? I hate being one size in one brand and a completely different size in another brand. From my understanding, clothing companys created these random numbers in order to make women feel better about their sizes. In my opinion, I get more upset and depressed about being one size in one company and 4 sizes larger in another company than I think I would be if I was just one size all the time. Plus, we wouldn't have to constantly try on clothes because the measurements would all be the same. Am I the only one who feels this way?
