I went to goodwill yesterday to drop off a bunch of big bags of clothes and to try and find a few things. I don't have any size 14 and my 16sare getting too big. I decided to do goodwill because buying stuff for a short period of time (surgery makes me not stay in sizes too long) seems silly and I am broke.
Anyway. I grabbed a bunch of 14s and tried them on. They all looked too small, but they fit! Snugly, but not so snug I can't wear them. I even got a pair of 13s on! I got about five pairs of pants, two shirts, and a dress.
And I finally moved past that whole "it fits and doesn't look awful, so I will get it." I only got flattering things because I realized that I didn't just have to look okay anymore, I can look cute.
