Abercrombie & Fitch shocks with new clothes size 000

The Californian label Abercrombie & Fitch has a new clothing size in the assortment: Size Triple Zero. A "000", which stands for the never-ending lean trend. Find out more here!

Abercrombie & Fitch was criticized only in May 2014 because the Californian brand refused to offer fashion in oversize. Now the size zero madness continues: The US label introduces a new dress size, which causes a lot of excitement: Size Triple Zero .

To illustrate: The often cited "Size Zero" corresponds to a German Konfenktionsgröße 32, Double Zero goes down to 30 and the new dress size 000 would be equivalent to a German 28. We ask: who should fit in there?

According to the Federal Statistics Office, the average German woman does not have clothes size 36 - or even 28! - but 42. It is 1.65 tall and weighs 68.1 kg. In May, the label made clear: we have neither XL nor XXL. Whoever wears a larger dress size than 42 will not find it at Abercrombie & Fitch. By the way, the size of clothes 000 now being introduced would, according to statistics, fit a six to eight-year-old girl. And honestly, who wants a character like a primary schoolchild?

The reactions to the Size Triple Zero at Abercrombie & Fitch were not long in coming: The American Huffington Post sees in the "000" an advertisement for anorexia. And also the British Grazia does not hold back the harsh criticism against the US label.

Too thick, too thin, too round, too narrow, too wide ... The eternal discussion about the perfect figure annoys and is rekindled by the introduction of a dress size 000 . Size Zero can tell us, or whatever it says on the label. The main thing, the new piece fits. More self-confidence, please!
