Pants Rant

It sucks when you have to walk around with your jeans unzipped because they don't fit you anymore.

It doubly sucks when you go into J.C. Penney and find out that the next size up doesn't fit you, either.

It triply sucks when the NEXT-next size up is a tad too large, but hey, you're desperate. So you buy them. You buy two of them. No, they don't fall off. But if you lose 5 pounds they will.

Lucky for me, there's no chance of that (she says as she sips delicately on her quad vente mocha with whipped cream, drizzled syrup, and chocolate sprinkles).

So technically I've gone up 3 pants sizes in the past 2 years and 4 months.

I guess there's something to be said for working on a medical floor where you run yourself ragged for 8 hours at a time instead of sitting around on your butt listening to people talk about the CIA and aliens and how the government is poisoning our drinking water with the AIDS virus.

At least I got them on sale.

It's things like that that make me hate clothes shopping so much. I hate it almost as much as I hate shoe shopping.

I hate shoe shopping worse. My feet are two different sizes. At least my buttcheeks match. ;)

At last! I've found another woman who hates shoe shopping. I've spent years thinking I was the only one. I hate it because I wear 11 1/2 wide and trying to find shoes in that size that aren't hideous or uncomfortable is something that can put me in a bad mood just by thinking about it.

I gave up. I wear Crocs or Birkies. Sandals in the summer. I don't even own a pair of decent dress shoes. I even have problems with tennis shoes now.

Oh man, that sucks. I wear sandals in the summer too, but I have bad heels so I have to make sure whatever I wear isn't going to make it worse. There have been times that I've had to shop in the men's section for decent walking shoes.

So basically you went from a 6-to-8-to-10? Um, yeah, not bad:)

I too have went up 2 pant sizes in the last 2 years. I don't work in a mental ward, though. I have no idea what my problem is.

Well, it's probably not water retention... ;)

I HAVE THE PERFECT SOLUTION! Wire your jaws shut, like me! I've lost eight pounds in five days! Of course I have no energy to do ANYTHING other than lie on the couch and dream of pastries, hamburgers and pizza, and will probably gain all the weight and more back within two days of having my jaws unwired....but I plan on trying on pants that are two sizes smaller than I normally wear before that happens, just to say I fit them once in my life.

This is exactly why I hate pants shopping. I'm usually at that awkward weight where pants are either too tight or too large!

Which is exactly where I am right now. Sigh.

You can do anything you dream of doing; you know that.
As for the pants, invest in a good tailor and the fit will negate the added size. Besides, smart shoppers don't tend to worry about the number on the label. You can always cut them out if they continually insult you. I went from a 6 to a 12. I'm trying to at least hold there. It drives me nuts that I have a brand-new, tags-still-on pair of pants I can't even squeeze one leg into. Three sized, hah! You're gorgeous.
