  • Happens to me every fall. Beginning of summer, I hang all my warm weather clothes up and wouldn't you know it? When it's time to wear them again, they have shrunk a size or two! It's amazing how that happens!!

  • There a clothes dryer virus going around, it shrinks women's clothes, the biggest time for this problem is right after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Denim is especially susceptible to this phenomena. But it is possible to get rid of this virus. The best time is usually right after New Year's, when you have worried yourselves  sick, that you end up eating carrot and celery sticks and yogurt.

  • They are but I had a baby 2 1/2 months ago. I probably gained a little over the holidays too.

  • You can blame it on the dryer. That is ok. (but I'd start doing some exercise to fit the new dryer jeans!)
