Yesterday, I gifted a huge garbage bag full of plus sized clothing to a friend. Going through it all was, in some ways, therapeutic and in some ways frustrating. A lot of the clothes, I still like and would still wear if I could. A lot of it was my professional wardrobe. I gave away 14's, 16's, 1x's and XL's. There were even some size 12 jeans in the mix. I gave it all away because there's no going back. I think I will always have a range of sizes in my closet because clothing sizes are so non-standard. My friend was really surprised to find me wearing size S t-shirts. I didn't take offense -- I'm surprised, too! But again, because clothing sizes are so weird, I can be wearing size S shirt and size 10 jeans, even though I'm top heavy! In any event, I'm really glad the clothes have found a new home, especially those fancy bras that cost me so much money!
