Stylish Mexicans want their own special clothes sizes3/29/2012
The most often overlooked element of looking stylish is fit -- no brand or label is going to make up for an ill-fitting garment. So, imagine living somewhere nothing fits: Welcome to Mexico, where Mexicans have complained for years that American and European sizes don't fit their body types -- and it turns out they're right. Mexican retailers report an unbelievable-to-us loss of $4 billion annually because of a high rate of returned goods. A new survey found the average Mexican woman aged 18-25 is 5-foot-2-inches and 138 pounds, while their male counterparts are 5-foot-5-inches and 170 pounds. That means the average Mexican body is in need of its own measurements separate from American and European ones.
