Create a minimum and maximum measurement for each size in women's clothing in the UK

Clothes. What woman doesn't like to buy a new outfit every now and again?
A lot of women are getting fed up with clothing sizing being so different in each shop and even across individual designs in the same shop.
Why should we be told to buy clothes two sizes bigger than our actual size?
We need a minimum and maximum measurement to be set for each size for companies to work from and to be enforced so we know when we walk into a high street store we can look at our size and be comfortable in the fact that we know it's going to fit!
For example a size 12 would be between 29-30 inch waist and it cannot be changed. At the moment different companies range from 26 inch to 30 inch waist for a size 12!
The reason I want this to happen is because I have had this happen to me. I walked into high street retailer H&M and I picked up size 6 jeans. Now I have always been a size 6 however I couldnt even get these jeans past my thighs... I returned them to the store and the cashier "advised" that I needed to buy clothes two sizes bigger in the area I selected the jeans from. Now I am conscious of the fact that I am small and I usually struggle with clothes being a bit too big for me, but to be told I need two sizes bigger is outrageous! Why can't I just be a size 6? Not a size 4, not a size 10, a size 6?
These randomised sizes help to promote an unhealthy body image as people walk into shops in fear they won't fit in their normal size.
