FACT: No 2 people have the exact same body measurements.
We are all individuals and have specific dimensions which make us unique, however, the industry has taken an aggregate and created garments using these aggregates, which means we sort of fit in somewhere in the S, M, L, or XL world. Granted, some people might fit in more than others and then there is the rest of the world whose body parts are both S and M or M and L
