I mentioned recently that size 7 underwear looks significantly smaller straight out of the package than size 9. Guess what? It also looks smaller than size 10! Turns out I'd been wearing underwear sizes 9 and 10 since I was at my highest weight. Interestingly, of all the clothes I'd taken to the consignment shop, or the charity shop, or are sitting in a pile because I don't know what to do with them, it took me QUITE a while to need new underwear. But evidently I'm a little slow on the uptake, because I was thinking, "these still fit me" all along. When in fact what had happened was this:
Cute little hipster underwear that used to fit like this or was at least cut to fit like this (only with a few more fat rolls than this model, plus actual hips):
But I've tossed all the 10s (no; I am NOT donating them to a charity shop), and I'm weeding out the 9s. And I'm wearing the new 7s that I bought, which look a lot more like the top picture on me than any underwear ever did before :)
Now, if someone could please get rid of these piles ...
|1. clothes I think I'm going to do something with 2. clothes I have no idea why are in another pile 3. clothes to go to the charity shop|
