I have put on SOOOO much weight!!! About 2 stone and more going on by the day, and have only been on them for about 3mths-am now only going out under cover of darkness!!! But today I had to attend my cousins funeral (a very sad day anyway) Sorted out 2 Black dresses-the stretchy one had to do-the other one went nowhere near me- and believe me it was VERY stretched!! Next the tights-problem no black tights-only hold up stockings!!! They would have to do!!(now, I had had these in my drawer,new and unopened,from about 2 years ago) WELL they went on-but hold up??? By the time we got to the crematorium they were just above my knees-Hold up stockings??? NO more like lacy top Pop Socks-not very comfortable, and most certainly NOT sexy!!
