In the last few weeks I've slowly begun to realize that all my clothes are way too big for me. Even though they aren't all necessarily old. For the past couple years I've always only tried on 3X's or 2X's depending on the style. My go to style has been oversized "flowy" shirts with leggings or jeans, they hide my tummy well. However, in the last month or so I realized that all the tops my husband loved to see me in the most were more form fitting. This struck home one cold day when I decided to wear a really old long sleeved shirt that I'd always thought was too small and unflattering. Yet my husband loved it, and I loved the way the shirt fit too. It seemed so flattering! That's when I realized, it wasn't the shirts design it was just the shirt's size!
I received several shirts and sweaters this Christmas and when I tried them all on, none looked as flattering as that old shirt I'd worn a week ago. I decided to go in and exchange them for smaller sizes even though they were all 2X or 3X, my go to sizes. When I went to the store, at first I thought, I'll just get all 2X's, 1X is too small for me. But then... I decided to try on the 1X anyway just to see how it looked, and it looked the best! Just 2 years ago I was a tight 3X and for the last two years I've been a baggy 3X, little did I realize, beneath that was a 1X!
Go me! :-)
