My capris that I bought at the beginning of the summer (size 20's) are HANGING off of me. They both have a bit of stretch in them and by an hour after putting them on they are just not wearable anymore.

I had picked up a pair of size 18 Bum Equipment jeans at Value Village a month ago and was SUPER excited that they fit. An 18+ plus womens.

Well... THOSE are getting loose on me! So tonight I went shopping. I hardly dared to look at the Levi's because they do NOT make them in plus sizes (here anyways) and only in Misses. So an 18 in a Levi's is way smaller than an 18 plus (obviously.) But I hurried into the "non plus sized" section, grabbed an 18 mid rise bootcut in a DARK blue. Scurried into the change room (expecting someone to boot me back to the plus sizes) and tried them on. AND THEY FIT. And the look AWESOME. And I LOVE THEM. And they are LEVI'S and I have not worn Levi's since I grew out of them when I was 18!

So bolstered by my success I GAVE UP THE PLUS SIZES. Strode boldly into the regular sizes and grabbed a bunch of XL shirts and... THEY ALL FIT. So I bought those too. And some super cute cuddly fleece pj pants in an XL.

so.... BYE BYE PLUS SIZES FOREVER!!!!!!!!! And yes I know that they sell 14's and 16's as plus too but as Goddess as my witness I will NEVER walk into the plus sized "section" at Wal-mart again. Ever. Again. :carrot:

Yea! Happy day! Did you cry? The first time I bought non plus sized clothing I bawled like a baby in the dressing room. I'm sure the lady at the front thought I was upset because something DIDN'T fit, LOL.

Congratulations! And the shopping just becomes more and more fun (one more size and I found I could pretty much shop anywhere again). :)

I'm in 16Ws hoping to get to 16 Misses and out of plus sizes VERY soon.

Wow Tammy I am sitting here at work sniffling. You do know how awesome you are don't you????

What's weird is, my misses 18s (Vanderbilts) are jailin but I can wear a Lane Bryant 14 in a stretch material (albeit they are a bit snug). There's such a big difference between plus and non-plus. But given my nearly 10" waist-to-hip ratio the plus sizes just look better on me. It's going to be both a wonderful and somewhat sad day when I can't fit into the LB 14s anymore, because misses just don't fit as well.

congrats! That is awesome. I didn't fit into a size 18 PLUS until I was down to 190 and I am 2 inches taller than you. how strange. you're lucky, it'll take me FOR EV AR to get down there for some reason.

I teared up too!

I'm so happy for you. (And unlike clothing posts from our UK and US sisters, I actually know exactly what you're talking about!)

Hmm... must be a body shape thing. I find around here (3fc that is) most people my weight and height are fitting into roughly the same size. Whatever it is it ROCKS and I'm happy!!!!

lol!!!! THANK YOU. There must be a different sizing standard from the two countries or something. I'm happy either way!

Amazing work! That is such a fabulous NSV, I would have probably let out a shriek of delight from the dressing room, 'cause I'm subtle like that :lol:

I think it's my hips. they are wide even when they aren't 'fat'.

But either way congrats! :D

Hooray! Best feeling ever, I know. I did the biggest victory dance the day I realized I never had to purchase a thing from Lane Bryant ever again. It looked a little like this:
