100 lb. Club - Boohoo! (Not really; just boasting again)

A few months ago I discovered the Orvis company (through accidentally buying one of their items on ebay).
I LOVE their clothes because they look classic, and grown up, and cared for. They are also generous sizes!!!!!

So far, I've only bought in their sale, because they're quite expensive, particularly when you're changing size, or on ebay but I love love love them.

My boohoo is that, on my thrice daily ebay check, I discover that most of the stuff is now TOO BIG for me! I'm wearing Ls, I've got a couple of Ms bought ready for the September/October break, I'll fit them well then; but most of what's online are Ls and XLs and they're gorgeous - but big!

Boohoo boohoo heehee boohoo boohoo.........

Tell you what, it's a great mental boost to find myself actually interested in clothes again!

You are not boasting - just sharing your joy! I'm on the cusp too - regular sizes a bit too small and women's sizes a tad large.
