J. Crew introduces size 000 to its stores

What's smaller than an XXS? J. Crew now has an answer. The retailer this week introduced the XXXS, or 000 to its stores.

A spokesperson for the company defended the controversial product, telling Today.com, “We are simply addressing the demand coming from Asia for smaller sizes than what we had carried. Our sizes typically run big and the Asia market tends to run small ... To further put into perspective, these sizes add up to the smallest possible percentage of our overall sizing assortment.”

Pants in a size 000 will be tailored for women with a 23" waist.
