Do size really matter....

in clothes? (LOL...get your mind off the gutter if you thought otherwise)

Have you ever gotten a gift such as blouse w/ the tag saying it's larger size than you normally wear?

Or tried to squeeze in to clothes such as jeans what you believe your size is just so you won't go up to that next size. LOL I'm guilty of this one. I know, I know most brand are not the same fit but it's still depressing to see a cute pair of jeans that don't fit you on the size you usually wear. =)

  • Yes, Size does matter. It was what ultimately kicked me in to gear to lose my weight...I couldn't stand the idea of buying the next size up in jeans...now I'm 7 sizes down from that!! Whoo hoo!

  • YES, it matters. Like, when MIL got me some clothes, size XL, I was pissed, but then I saw that it was children's size XL and then I was super-pissed. I don't stress when I have to up or down one from what I normally wear. . . more than one, and there could be trouble.

  • It is so depressing to look for clothes anymore considering none of the brands fit the same ! but on the bright side it is always awesome to find something that fits thats a size smaller than you usually wear isnt it!

  • Congrats on your weight loss munch12502.


    Pnukey....lol don't worry MIL did that to me too and also hubby. Can you imagine having a baggy pj that was way too big on the butt...that can fit another person.


    Bonnie-Jo...lol...don't worry...even though I asked the question, my mind was also in the gutter

  • for me, i could care less about size..but my daughter..shes 5..and her pants range from size 4's-8's...so..thats kind of frustrating! makes it hard to buy for her, cuz if shes not with me, i just never know!! and then if she IS with me, she taes trying on clothes in the store, so it hends of being a pain..but..yaaa..its annoying!!
