Default NSV - clothing

I have a very professional job. For years now I have been shopping online only at Roaman's for my clothes because no store carried my size - a 34. Some of you may know how this goes - I shopped for something that would fit and price - style really couldn't come in to it.

So lately my clothes have been just hanging on me. But I haven't wanted to buy new clothes because I still have a lot more weight that I want to - **and will!** lose. So some things that were just too big I haven't worn, but I'm still wearing some stuff that was too tight or didn't look good that I never threw away which fits okay now.

Anyway, I was on this deals site and found a dress at Target. Adorable - on clearance for $20 and free shipping. So I decided to buy it. I had an internal debate looking at their sizing and went for the 24. I wasn't sure that it would fit, but was hoping that it would by later this spring when I will have hopefully lost more. It came today, and guess what? It fits awesome! I was so excited!

The only issue is that it is a lyrca type material that GRIPS even when it's not tight. Now a big deal on top as I'm flat chested, but I am concerned that it clings to my belly and butt a little much. It's so hard to know, because for so many years I've dressed to CONCEAL.

But - that is basically 10 sizes (well, really 5, but I'm going to count the technical 10)!!

Congratulations on the NSV!

And I know how weird it is to wear clothes that fit - I mean, are they really meant to touch there, and there? For so long I've worn baggy things that come to the bust and then cascade!

Congratulations on the 10!!!!!

That's terrific!! Look at you losing 80+. 10 sizes!! WOW. That is fantastic!

For the grippy-ness, check out the Spanx shapers.

In store clothing offers a wide variety of styles and fabrics. Consider empire waist lines which make the most of the girls and drape over the mid section.
