Vanity (Not) Fair

A few days ago, the New York Times did an interesting article on vanity sizing.   The most eye-opening portion was this mind-boggling graphic that not only compared a size 8 among different brands but also within the same brand (eg., Marc Jacobs designer line vs Marc Jacobs mid-priced line).   I realize that vanity sizing is meant to cure insecurities but it's leaving us with an identity crisis.
