I have to be a "celebrity judge" at a black-tie event next week. After I accepted the invitation, I was all like, OMG what am I going to wear?? I have nothing!! And I don't want to buy anything, I'm only in a size for 6 weeks at the time.

Well, I went through my basement and closet and found a suit I bought in 2003. I only wore it once, when I went to this thing where I got to meet John Kerry (before he ran for president).

It's a 14W.

I tried it on.

IT FITS!!!! It is Very Very Fitted...but it fits, no problem.

Wow.

Yey!!!
Thatīs great!

A little question... what does the W stand for in 14 W? Is it different from just plain 14?

14W is smaller in the waist and larger in the bust and hip, and arms and legs, than 14 misses. It would be between a 16 misses and a 14 misses. Which is a trip, because I generally wear a small 18 or a large 16. I have a very small waist (compared to the other measurements) but I should be no-where near being able to wear a 14. I still have several 16s I can't get into, like a fabulous pair of Hilfiger jeans in a very very light blue. My goal is for them to be roomy by the end of the year. I remember buying this suit and in my mind it was a lot smaller than it actually is. I'm glad I was brave enough to try it on! I'm afraid to have it dry-cleaned though, if it shrinks one iota I can't wear it.

Oh Dc--this is so great. What a fun time this is for you!! The great news is that you will notice the sizes go down much more quickly now. That was motivation unto itself for me! Congratulations.

Way to go, I am so happy for you. Dry cleaning shouldn't shrink it at all. Wear the suit and hold your head high!!
