I actually have a helpful tip! and maybe an explanation as to why people try on alot of clothes, especially form fitting things. And, this also makes
any 'scan' or even measuring yourself useless as well, and why one really has to try on clothes.....
When most clothing is cut, the fabric is cut in large piles, hundreds of pieces maybe. So the ones at the bottom and the ones at the top are not
really even close to the same 'size'.
You might know your measurements, and these may correspond to a 'size' - but the size on the clothing label is really nominal. These things are not
cut to precise super close tolerances or anything - just envision it - or go look up more info. This is how they do it though, and this is why sizes
can vary greatly. And you might not notice it so much in looser fitting clothing.
Goes for all clothing, even towels and things - look at and compare some of the exact same things - some are much bigger than others, some are not
even "square", etc.
This is why, with some items of clothing, people do 'try on' alot. You have to. The cut and sewing of clothing varies widely, among the exact same
pieces even, including higher end clothes. Alot has to do with how pieces are cut.
So forget the body scan that might tell you a 'size' that probably means nothing anyway. You have to "try on".
Or, find a clothing line that has consistent sizing and order from them.
