Our friend Ruth_canal_runner recently posted her lovely new size 8 skirt. Quite rightly she deserves to be very proud of it.
However, for me, dress size isn't always the best target.
Last year I bought this Xmas party dress. It is a size 12. Then some time later I spotted the same dress in size 10 reduced in the sale, and that too fits fine with additional firm lycra underwear. So, in a moment of vanity I bought that too. Now, this year altho I am actually 2 lbs lighter than last Xmas, I realise I actually prefer the bigger one.. without the Spanx. Who cares about the label? I know which one I'd rather wear 😊
