Setting Yourself Up for a PNB (Pants Nervous Breakdown)
I don't think I'm alone in feeling that, next to swimsuit shopping, there is nothing more likely to induce a nervous breakdown than looking for pants. It turns out there is actually a reason for this, and it's not (just) my freakishly short legs! Fashion blogger Marie Denee, editor in chief of TheCurvyFashionista.com
says, "In production, pants are cut in batches of 100s, so the top one in the batch will fit slightly differently—especially in the same size and especially in jeans—so it's important to bring one size up and down into the dressing room when you are trying out bottoms."
