I had to go try the shoe thing out yesterday. I've noticed mine where getting loose, but I figured it was because they were old. I used to wear 8.5 - 9 before I gained all my wieght. Past couple years, I've been in 11's. Yesterday, went and tried some one...SIZE 9-1/2!!!!!!!!!! Shoes are so much cuter in smaller sizes

When you have to go to the restroom at work and do the "tights dance" in private because tights that used to leave marks on your belly are now slipping and falling down around your hips!
