I am just a little frustrated this morning as I have just tried on 5 dresses that I ordered online in size 12. I have been a 14/16 for the last 5/6 years and finally lost the weight this year and (nearly!) am managing to maintain. Size 14 is too big for me now so the natural selection was size 12. However it appears that I still am not quite a size 12 and the dresses were all little snug. I dislike clothes shopping, so although I know that different shops come up different sizes, the thought of having to go and search for clothes does not fill me with excitement. So my dilemma is do I lose another half stone or put a bit back on to fit nicely into a size 14. I have also had comments about my weight, like Claire2stone, with people saying "don't lose any more or you will look too skinny". Well clearly if I am not fitting into a size 12 comfortably then I cannot be 'too skinny'. Sooooo frustrating when you have tried so hard to then come up against annoying people and ill fitting clothes. Sorry to rant but just wanted a new dress for my birthday sunday lunch this weekend! Thanks for listening
