Via a Twitter link, I found this interesting and extremely clever program. What Size Am I? looks at high street brands and the way that they size their women's clothing. Created by web developer Anna Powell-Smith, the program works by entering your essential numbers [Chest-Waist-Hip] and then the graph will place you from the many pre-drawn lines and tell you what size clothes will fit you best in a particular shop. For example, below, my 36-30-36 body means that I would best fit into size 12 clothes from New look or Top Shop.
Of course, it is also depends on what suits my purse too.
