Heck, I need the message to stay strong after trying on bras or what my Grandma would call "foundation garments" yesterday. For the love of Pete... "vanity sizing" in bras now? Because I took 5 same-size/different brands into the fitting room and the first was too big... and the others too small. This after trying 5 others (same scenario) last week and having them fit. Some of these were what I like to call the bra workhorses - you know - a Playtex full-coverage cup. I'm looking for basic, no-frill, want to put it on and have everything stay in place until I remove it bra, and I don't think that's too much to ask!
Don't even get me started on clothes... because sometimes they fit, and other times they don't. I am not a shopper. I am not a "clothes" person. I am way more of a "uniform" person, you know, the antithesis of Stacy & Clinton's advice on What Not to Wear: TLC. I dress modestly for work, and I will admit most times at home, and the appropriate attire I desire is sometimes very hard to come by.
The "new" wardrobe I am supposedly looking forward to enjoying shopping for has yet to materialize unless we're talking about me shopping on my husband's side of the closet and in his dresser. Yes, I can now fit into and wear his clothes - and do enjoy borrowing his tees, but that's not what I was envisioning when dreaming of the "new" wardrobe.
Grr... I say.... just grr...!
