"Zero Is Not A Size"

Looks like our girl Brooke Davis has made a real impact on the world. Since she said that to her mother in the cafe, zero is no longer the sample size. 16 year old me would be so happy! This is bad for some of us, but the sample size has risen from 0 to 2 to 4 in the past few years. Sample sizes are sold as sample sales. AKA every stylish girls wet dream. Seamstresses everywhere will be so excited, but those starving in the name of fashion will be nauseated.
Hit us up with some comments on your thoughts!

well, it's fine if zero is no longer the sample size. but zero IS a size, HAS to be a size, because there're girls who have to wear size zero, and putting it out of the market would be as dicriminating as putting out the biggest one.
(IMO)

I agree with the first comment. I think all girls, of all sizes should have a place in the fashion realm. I'm no size zero myself (or close) but I have size zero Momma and one of my sister and I want them to continue to be able to get fabulous bargains al la sample sale. Maybe we just need multiple sample sizes? Ha. Dream world.

i used to be a 0...right after i used to be a 00. many years and college binges later and now i'm a happy size 2-4. it takes work for sure but it's about being healthy. i know you can (usually) be healthy at 0 too, so i totally think it should be a size but i get the point she's tryin to make. it's not the NORM.

That episode was so fun and cute. Too bad it sent Millie in a downward spiral.

If sizes went from 1 onwards...no one would feel "fat" for not being a 0 size and things would be more real..right? I mean they exist, they have a size (however small it is) so it can't be zero...

I'm glad the fashion industry is going in the right direction. While I agree that there are definitely people who can wear a size 0 without a problem, it's the fact that the industry promotes the idea of models who are almost 6 feet and wear a size 0 that is unsettling!

And you're welcome for the introduction of Nasty Gal! <3

The industry really needs to get over the whole "size zero" obsession and I am so glad that that is finally happening. Yay! :)
