I love to shop, but I hate the feeling of not fitting into what I think is my size when I get to the store and then having a mini crisis in the dressing room-ugh!
I have a gift card to Talbot's and I can hardly wait to use it but I am nervous that their pants will be a bit tight. I may call my local store and find out their sizing.
It's tough for me with self esteem and body image hence I am a perfectionist so when I was thinner I felt better but I still have issues with feeling okay with my weight. I feel chubby and bloated now, ick, so I hope that this will be my year to get my weight issues under control.
I love thrift stores, I worked for a few, I highly recommend trying the clothing on though because especially in women's sizes, what is one size in one brand may be too small or too big in a different brand, shape and cut.
Take care and happy shopping!!!
