Big dilemma more recently, I have no jeans. Not that I can’t go out and buy them, but I guess I’ve been waiting to be at my smallest or at my ultimate goal weight before the big ol’ shopping spree. What I noticed though, is that I need clothes… especially jeans, because it’s one thing to style big items to work for you (tying a belt vs fastening, rolling down jeans or cutting them), after a while you just look frumpy.
So yesterday I stopped by one of those Rainbow type shops called Charade, where you can get like 4/$20 tanks etc., because they were having a “remodeling clearance sale.” Decided to try on a pair of “fake” jeans really- because they run on odd numbers, not a great denim, in a size 11.
And, drumroll please…. they fit! Ever so slightly fitted, but they fit. Now, check them out next to these fat jeans I had to by back in October of last year because I had ZERO jeans that fit. A VERY stretchy size 14- so we’re looking at more of a 16 maybe?
The 11 has a diameter of about 28” (low rise) and the 14 (very high waisted), about 34”. If the size chart below is correct, we’re looking at a Small/Medium vs a XLarge.
I’m a pretty happy clam. Again, while I haven’t reached my goal weight, I eat as healthy as possible and workout as much as I can. I will get there, and moments like these only push me to work harder!
Thanks for the chart jeans-and-accessories.
