Last night my Husband asked my girlfriend to go with me to Lane Bryant in order to use my gift card that He had gotten me for Christmas. I was going to look for shirts for work, but apparently He had already discussed another plan with her. When we got there, she informed the clerk that i needed to be measured for new bras. I looked at her like she was crazy, but she politely informed me that my bras didn't fit correctly, which was why i was always complaining about my bras.
When the lady returned from measuring me, which is informed me i was a size smaller in the width around but a size bigger in the cup (WHAT????) my girlfriend had picked out some underwear for me from the 5 for $25 counter. I looked what she had selected but informed her that she would need to pick out a size bigger. She looked at me & said, "Honey, you've lost weight. You aren't a 22/24 anymore. I argued with her until she grabbed me & forced me into a dressing room. She had apparently been shopping while i was getting measured. I tried on a few bras & agreed that yes, i needed the bigger cup size. I was still skeptical about the underwear, but she tossed a skirt at me & told me to try it on. I informed her it was a size 20 & while Lane Bryant sizes did run weird, i was not a 20! I continued to argue with her while i was putting on the skirt but stopped when i realized that i had it on all the way, didn't have to really have it unbuttoned to put it on & still had room in it. We would've loved to buy an 18 but they didn't have it in that size... the 20 fits just fine though!
So, here i am today at work in my new 'well fitting' bra, size 20 skirt & size 18/20 undies... *smiles* It's GREAT!!!!! Cheer & Celebrate with me boys & girls... i am officially the same size that i was in high school!!!! LOL!!! Now to keep going!!!
