they aren't tight or loose...in fact, i need a belt with 34's.

Yeah, like IW says, clothing size is not an accurate reflection of true measurements; clothing sizes also vary amongst manufacturers. Female clothing has lots of problems in that area and ours work solely off 12 or 14 or 4 etc with little actual measurement but they still vary and it astounds me when a person wears a UK size 10 and I cannot get in to a UK size 10 even though I'm smaller than they are different brands, different machinists, different sizes all over the place.


Wear whatever fits and just know your actual measurements; I often wear kiddies clothes or young mens clothing 13-14y/o for my workouts...it fits, I wear it...bras area is a bit of a problem though, 'cos guys don't wear those, so female section it is for that item of clothing
