I've shopped at Lane Bryant (plus-size woman's clothing store) since about 2001? Something like that. It's a bit spendy for me, but my husband and I went in there yesterday to look at bras. Most of mine are too big now! I don't remember asking to drop a cup size, but whatever!
Has anyone been in recently? Apparently for their "right fit" jeans they have changed the sizes all around. I am now a size 4, yellow. Size 4? Ok, if I am a REAL size 4 that will make me feel good, but a LB size 4? That doesn't exactly have the same ring to it.
I also like how I'm "yellow" now, which is basically a synonym for "you have no hips or butt!" They have red if you're sorta curvy, and blue if you are really curvy.
My real size? 18-20. Maybe one day it will go down, but I'm not going to hold my breath until (if) I get to size 4. Because that could be awhile!
Although, I have to say, I have never had a pair of jeans that fit me as well as my size 4, yellow. Usually around the legs and hips it is way too huge. Like just because I have a large waist must mean I also have big thighs and legs too. So I'm actually really grateful for some cute new jeans for $40! (hey, that's splurging for me!)
