Relax, relax, Reeeelaaaxxx !. It’s not that type of topic😆. How inappropriate of you to even allow such things to cross your mind😀. Where’s you ladiness ?( I’m pretty sure this isn’t a word)🤔😂.
So I wore this very corporate outfit some time last week and a lot of people loved it. This got me thinking about just how wrong the whole gear would have looked if I was the type of girl who’s obsessed about what size clothing she wears.
Like a lot of my fellow African Sisters I have huge milk jugs,mind you this is post a reduction😭😂 but that’s a topic for another day. I’m also heavily packed on reverse😆 but ngiyilambalidlile in the stomach area. I swear I’m flatter than most pancakes🤣. Whiles this is all juicy it is problematic,very problematic when it comes to buying clothes. What fits well on the bottom or top is guaranteed to be a tent in the waist area whiles what’s great on the waist leaves me breathless on the chest and becomes a bandage on the bottom. Having this body type is what led me to making an important and best decision I ever made in my fashion life😅 : Go into the store and try on stuff. Pick what fits best WITHOUT paying any attention to what size it is .I still have to make adjustment in the waist area but that’s no big deal. At the end of the day my outfits turn out looking well tailored.
These pants are a size 10/12 USA, 36/38 South Africa. Those of you who’ve met me know it’s shocking to think I can wear anything that’s this size. I look like a solid size 6, an 8 if you are judging by the twins and pumpkin back there😂. Imagine how depressed I’d be if I only tried on clothes in sizes I think I should be.
My advice for you today is to let go of any worry about what size you wear. Eat well,drink plenty of water and when it comes to shopping ; simply walk into the store and grab three various sizes of each item you want,try them on and choose the best fitting one, NOT the smallest/closest to the size you think you should be. Trust me you are not only going to start feeling more comfortable in your clothes,you’ll actually look much slimmer,sleeker and very well put together !!!. Say NO to looking like a stuffed sausage😂.
Side note : I didn’t adjust the waist on these pants. I’ve just been using a safety pin🙈😂. I do a lot of this if the item allows😀 because I like giving my used ( gently so and well kept😝😚) clothing to my family and sometimes followers who may need the waist in its original form. Well gosh I’ve written a thesis😭. Happy Tuesday ! . Please do share your thoughts on this and or your shopping habits in general.
