Does the size of clothing affect your self esteem?

Friday, January 30, 2009

Perhaps it is not supposed to, but for me it does. Whether it is up or down, the first few times a size does not fit, I figure that it is the brand, but then when it happens with several brands I think that I am either really gaining or really losing the weight.
I notice that for most clothing, for those sold in the US it is a made about full size larger that it is in Canada. I now wear a 6 for most items in Canada and I find this is usually a 4 in the US. (juniors are totally different in the gap though). I have to admit the elation that came with the very first comfortably fit size 4 garment
