To some this size may be HUGE, for me it's an indication that I'm losing weight and the regular size 18, my 3/14/10 goal is at hand.
I went and tried on clothes yesterday and I fit the 18w and went ballistic. My husband was almost embarrassed but couldn't stop laughing. He did manage to say "you look good" between the chuckles.
Of course they weren't all the same size 18w...I think some were size 16w. At any rate I fit more of them than I didn't.
