Size 12 is FAT????

The above photo is me in August with a ring sling that I made for my DD. I am a size 12.

And this is us at the Big E this summer. I weigh LESS now than I do in this photo.



I know for a fact that sizes don't mean S**T. I'm pretty tall, so I know that factors in. Also, body type has a lot to do with it, too. I just hate when people make blanket statements about this sort of thing - One size does not fit all! :-)


ETA: I am 5'9''


I just wanted to add that I am not fishing for compliments - I'm just trying to make a point that just because you are a certain size, be it small OR big, it (by itself) doesn't necessarily mean that you are thin or fat

In the fashion world yes a size 12 is plus. In real life a size 12 is pretty damn good in my book and healthy looking to me.

to me it is. I'm a 3. You're tall though so you get a pass, but if you were 5'2 and a size 12, that's overweight.
