For the past two years or so, I said I wasn't going to buy clothes until I lost weight. This week I shopped for clothes. No, I haven't lost enough weight to make it imperative. I just needed a few items.
The pants were a size smaller. The tops were the same size...or yikes, a size bigger. The kind and attentive sales clerk was kept busy, running back and forth to get the same items in different sizes or colors.
It may be the style, but snug fitting clothes do not flatter me. I cheered when I heard a famous writer say that she has reached the age where she no longer wears clothes that are uncomfortable. There's a lot to be said for advancing maturity.
The clerk assured me that I am probably not a size larger for tops. Size depends on the cut. She said she wears anything from 1x to 3x.
Seems to me with pants two sizes smaller than the tops, I should fall over soon. You know those charts where you are supposed to pick if you are shaped like an apple or a pear? How about shaped like a waffle cone? This is not what I had in mind when I said I wanted to lose weight.
