Are clothing sizes getting smaller again?

Yesterday I went shorts and summer shirt shopping at Ross. I was wearing a pair of size 22 shorts that fit wonderfully with no tightness that I have had for a couple of years. I grabbed a few different types and brands of shorts in size 22 and headed off to the dressing rooms, none of them fit. I was grring the fact that I must have gained weight or inches or something. So I just went ahead and bought the next size up. Today after I got out of my shower I measured myself and weighed myself and there is no difference.

So my question is are the sizes getting smaller or am I just going nuts?

Yup, Ross is like Marshalls or TjMaxx. And not a single brand fit.

 There's no telling. Women's sizes vary so much it's hard to say. Men's sizes are a lot more accurate.
