36. I'm 5'6"!
:headbang: I do feel tall sometimes, especially in my neighborhood where everyone's short and round.

I've been freaked out lately because I bought two hoodie sweatshirts and I had to exchange them both for EXTRA LARGES. My shoulders are wide for a chick and my hips are a little big but I am so NOT an extra large x( I used to wear 7's and 8's and now I wear 9's and 10's but next to most people I see I'm like a stick.
This pisses me off so bad, I've written to cafe press about their dumb sizing x(
