Jcrew came out with a size 000 and thankgod cause I’ve been meaning to buy some new clothes for my American Girl Doll

Size 000 is essentially a size XXXS – which would have been unheard of many years ago – and this has now introduced the much debated topic of Vanity Sizing (the old 6 is the new 4, and so on). Trying to appear the sizing you wear is smaller!

Petite females will embrace the new size if it allows them a greater selection of clothes to choose from, without needing to visit a tailor to take their new purchases in. J.Crew says there is a demand for this sizing and is the reason it is out.
