Sizes...What are they good for?
There is a little thing called feedback. Sometimes we get it from others. It can be anything from a glance, a compliment or someone really giving it to you. We also give ourselves feedback. It can be feeling happy and exuberant. Or it can be feeling grumpy, angry, stressed out, and upset. What does this have to do with sizes? Your clothes should fit YOU, whatever size YOU are. If you're happy, I mean truely happy with yourself, if you wake up happy with the way you feel and look everyday. Why should it matter what SIZE you are? You can be a 2 or a 22. Happiness comes in a sizes and shapes. On the other hand if you aren't happy with the way you feel, you look at yourself in the mirror and know you need to make a change so that you do feel better, then it's time to start taking the steps you need to, to get to that ideal goal. The bottom line for me is, I made amends with my new post baby 'size'. Can I stand to feel a little better? Yes. Am I taking the steps to get to that goal? Yes, I'm starting now.
I don't really know what size I am. I buy clothes, that fit me. When I go into dressing rooms I usually take 3 different sizes with me, to try on. The best way to shop online is to take your measurments, a bust, a waist, and a hip measurment. Most online retailers have sizing charts available on their sites to go by. This tends to work the best. So the next time you start to get hung up on what size jeans you just bought, ask yourself for a little feedback and then decide how you really feel about it.
