  • When J. Crew introduced size 000 or XXXS clothing, they were accused of vanity sizing, but according to the brand, such is not the case.  “We are simply addressing the demand coming from Asia for smaller sizes than what we had carried. Our sizes typically run big and the Asia market tends to run small,” a spokesperson said via a statement. “To further put into perspective, these sizes add up to the smallest possible percentage of our overall sizing assortment.” The new size accommodates a 23-inch waist.
