The last time I went shopping with my husband I cried in the dressing room because I had to go back to Plus sizes after being a size 14 for many years. It was heartbreaking and I felt like a failure.
I think that may have been the last time I tried on clothes as I resumed shopping plus sizes from Old Navy online.
Fast forward 2 years. Today, I went to the Gap for their Friends & Family 50% sale (code FFSALE if you are interest, through tomorrow).
I don’t know what kind of clothes I should wear. The don’t know how to shop. The whole thing stresses me out.
I picked up a couple of size S sweaters, waiting for some salesperson to give me the evil eye, then picked up a few pairs of size 10 pants. Anxiously in the dressing room, those pants just went right on. No crying at all!
Again, the sizes are a trip. I can wear anything across multiple sizes depending on who makes them. The LOFT makes me feel good with their vanity sizing.
Today, I felt like a normal person.
I asked Mike if I look like a normal sized person and he rolled his eyes and said “yes baby.” Seriously. It’s a trip.
Now I have 3 pairs of pants I can wear to work without them falling down. Progress.
