Fabulous shrinking jeans

I've been putting off replacing my old jeans. I didn't want to risk getting a size smaller and then barely being able to fit half my bum into them. But today I got them, and tried them on despite expecting them to be painfully tight, with a huge miffin top. To my very great surprise they fit perfectly! In fact they're a huge improvement on my old pair, which had become all saggy around the bum. It's been so many years since I've worn size 16 jeans; I could not be happier. This was definitely worth all the hard work over the last couple of months.

  • I absolutely loved the jeans process:  too tight, just fit, a bit loose, take them off without unfastening, have to hold them up with a belt etc, and finally into the attic for the next size down and start all over again!  I love it, love it.  The final step is being able to choose what type of jeans actually suit you, rather than buying what you can get into and doesn't look too bad.  

  • Even more amazingly, the new jeans still fit after a big delicious (and not too unhealthy) Mexican breakfast. I can't wait to repeat the process with the next size down!

  • How fabulous!!! Glad the jeans are a perfect fit! :)

  • Well done. You can't beatcthst feeling.  It's worth all the effort you have put in. Congratulations!
