Could the clothes you buy determine your weight? A new $3.2 million H-Net/Fritz Media study has revealed a very significant statistical correlation between the purchasing of clothing in XXXL sizes and obesity, and a corresponding correlation between purchasing sizes M and S with low body weight. Perhaps most surprisingly, the study found that people used to purchase XXXL clothing, but have since switched to purchasing smaller clothes sizes are also very likely to have lost a lot of weight. So the next time you go shopping, you may want to head over to the petite section, even if they’ll need to use a forklift to get you over there!
