Default A "wth?" Nsv

I knew my size 24W pants were feeling looser. A week ago I tried to put on a pair of 22WP pair of jeans. They were still way to small - couldn't even get them over my hips. Bummer. I hung them back up thinking "okay - someday".

Today, I looked at those jeans and looked at the 20s I have been hanging on to and those 20s looked bigger than the 22's. WTH?? So I tried the 20W's because they have some side elastic. You know, just to see where I'm at.

I slipped them on... up,... up,... over my hips and I buttoned and zipped with only a little strain. I do have some muffin top going on but..... I'm wearing a 20, I'm wearing 20W!!! : I wore them to church this morning! I still have them on so they are not super uncomfortable.

And can I just say how much I hate the way different brands (and sometimes even the same brands!) have so much variety in how big sizes are? I have some 20Ws that are STILL too tight on me, but I'm wearing 18 (regular sizes, not W) in other brands.

Congrats. That's awesome. I wonder if the difference is that one is a petite.

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip Toe if you must, but take the step.
