Americans are getting larger and larger which is effecting their health and our insurance costs in a very negative way. Why you choose to add to the problem leaves me at a loss. Changing your sizes to give people the illusion of wearing a smaller size just adds to the problem. Being a fitness Pro for over 40 years has put me in a position to see the damage being caused by those manufactures who are choosing to alter their sizes for increased sales. I've had clients that think they are fine because they wear a size 8 but really it's a much bigger size.

I was so sad when I put on my shirt. I have gotten several of these in the past. I wear a xs. I'm 110 pounds and am 5"3" so I'm small but not skinny. I understand that you are re sizing this shirt. As I stated above I am greatly disappointed that I can no longer wear this shirt due to your re sizing it to make people believe they are a smaller size.

You should add sizes at the top of the scale not bring the current scale down. Maybe do a large 1,2 and 3 then go to X large. Clothing not fitting has encouraged many to put their forks down and get off the couch to take care of themselves.

I am very very disappointed in your choice to change sizes for financial gain. You are "part of the problem" not part of the solution.
