Talking Bought some smaller clothing!!!

Put on my favorite jeans this morning and yeah they were a little loose. As the day goes on I am able to grab a handful of waistline to yank them back up so I decide to head to my local Ross. I find a nice pair of basic jeans in a size 20W (down from my 22W I am currently wearing) and try them on. Ummmm maybe I could go down another size--they are a little big in the waist, not alot, just a wee bit. These have some spandex in them (just a little) so I know that they are not going to stretch out like my cotton ones. Guess what? The 18Ws fit like a dream and they look good on me too. Not great but good. Just a basic pair for putzing around the house or to run out to the grocery store.

Now I'm excited and I find a 20W pair of dress slacks, basic black, trouser style. And they fit perfectly! Then I find a black tweed lined jacket that goes with them beautifully. And its a 18W. I can button it up over the girls--it fits!!!

So, I'm at least down one size, possibly two sizes depending on the cut and the brand.

Happy camper here! Thanks for letting me crow!

thats awesome!!!! Dont forget to get rid of those pants that are too big. Give them away or trash them. Its very symbolic for me to get rid of them saying I will never wear them again because I ll never be that size again.
