Size 0 is a women's clothing size in the US catalog sizes system, believed to be equivalent to a UK size 4 or a European size 32. Due to the current hype about super-slim actresses and models, and a public awareness of eating disorders, it's often incorrectly assumed that size 0 and 00 were invented to fit a new class of dangerously thin women. Size 0 is actually designed to cater to those excluded from standard sizing by vanity sizing (the practice of labeling clothes with a lower size than their measurements would traditionally indicate, to appeal to customers' vanity). "Size 0" is often used to refer to extremely thin, emaciated, or shorter individuals (especially women), or trends associated with them. This usage does not always relate to the clothing size - the "size 0 ban" at the Madrid Fashion Week had body mass index as its criterion, not body measurements.(courtesy: Googles)

Size Zero is a fashion jargon, which implies low body mass.
Also Size 0 is a women's clothing size in the US catalog sizes system, believed to be equivalent to a UK size 6 or a Europe size 32-34.
