I know that sizes are one size bigger in the US than Canadian sizes are (a size 10 in the US is a size 12 in most Canadian made clothing), but I don't know if your plus size/regular sizes are different as well.
What I mean by that is our plus sizes run from size 14 up here, but a size 14 in a plus sized store is more like a 16 in a "regular" store.
Today, I went shopping for some clothes. I've lost 17 pounds, so my plus size 16's were getting a bit droopy. I tried on plus sized 14's and they were still too big. So I went to a "regular" size store, and their size 16's fit perfectly!
And I'm TOTALLY excited!
