Blogger Mira Hirsch reveals the startling difference in clothing sizes. Image: Instagram/@mira_hirsch
Mira Hirsch has a public service announcement: don’t let numbers define you. For a good reason.
The South African blogger posted a photo on social media, exposing how different clothing can be, even when it’s technically the same size.
Hirsch posted a side-by-side photo from the dressing room, wearing two different pairs of pants in the same size from the same store.
“The maroon pair had a label saying ‘New Fit’ and the mint pair had nothing,” Hirsch writes on the post.
“Both were my size yet one pair couldn’t even close and the other pair was a little loose?”
After revealing the startling discrepancy, she explains how she used to dread shopping for this reason, saying when something in her size didn’t fit she would let “diet culture kick in, and self loathing take over”.
But then, she encourages her 100,000-plus followers to take back their power and “wear whatever size and style you desire… love your skin you’re in.”
