Welcome to the weekend ladies! I got a tiny wake up call this week. As I got dressed for my day, I found things that fit me last season don’t fit as well now. The size tags still read medium but they fit like extra small! How’d that happen? Eating my body weight in potato chips over the past year hasn’t helped but I’m shocked they all showed up this week!
I knew my weight was up and assumed a tunic top would hide it. Many may but this one wouldn’t button up. My back is now broader, my tummy is definitely thicker but my arms and thighs are also larger. To be honest, even my shoes are snugger! I decided to wear this tunic, open and layered long necklaces to distract the eye. Because I love it, I will keep it in my guestroom closet until it fits me better.
Even though we know one brand’s small is equal to another brand’s large, many women won’t wear a size out of their comfort zone…pun intended. Ignore the size on a label and buy what flatters the body you have now. If you get nuts about the number on the tag, cut it out when you get home. I usually do anyway because I hate how scratchy they are.
If your weight fluctuates don’t see it as a failure. It’s part of life. We don’t need to wear tight clothes to remind us to not overeat. We need to wear clothes that fit so we continue to feel good about ourselves.
Remember size tags are a suggestion! Try everything on and don’t take the number personally. Be honest with yourself and buy what fits you… now. Your confidence will thank you.
Do you let the number on a size tag affect whether you buy a garment?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
