When I posted my whine last week, several people suggested that I try on some new clothes, and I might be surprised at what size fits me.
Well, I did, and I am!! I didn't actually try on a bunch of stuff, but I was out at Costco and they had some very cute denim trousers that came up to a misses size 18, plus they looked like they were pretty generously sized.
So I grabbed a pair and brought them home. And they didn't fit. They were TOO BIG!!!! So they'll be going back for a pair of size 16.
Now, I'm sure that if I tried on other 16s, most of them probably will not fit. and the 20s I have in my closest still didn't fit the last time I tried. And I'm still not even remotely close to being out of plus sizes on my top half (I have gotten a little smaller but the girls are hanging on for dear life, so still not able to move down a size yet)
But I'm still calling this a NSV and also thanking everyone who encouraged me to try on new stuff, because this felt absolutely great!
