What's the Deal with Women's Clothes?

I need to do some Christmas shopping for my wife. She's hinted about wanting some clothes, but she's tough to buy for...because she's so small.

She might be small, but she has a large chest , which makes finding things that fit very tough. Essentially, if an article of clothing fits her in the chest, it'll be way too long in the arms. So she has the sleeves taken in.

Then there's negotiating all the sizes that are supposed to fit her height (if not her chest). There are the "P" (for petite) clothes. Then there are the regular numbers, like 2 and 4.

2 and 4 WHAT? Inches? Yards? International Clothing Units? These numbers relate to nothing in terms of measurement.

Men's clothes are all by inches. Shirts have a neck and sleeve measurement--in inches. Pants have a waist and length measurement--in inches. Very simple.

They should do the same for women's clothes.
