Goodbye Skinny Waist

Bookmark and Share

I'm not as skinny as I used to be.

Shopping in the stores I spot a fabulous dress. Size 2? Sure, I'm a size 2...about 15 years ago.Yet I try it on and seem disappointed that it does not fit. Ummm, errr, where did my waist go?

Apparently my waist left my body about 4 years ago without telling me. Yep, it just up and walked out the front door not so much as leaving a note or saying good bye.

Was is something I said? No, it's just middle age and it happens to all of us. Which is why we need to measure ourselves regularly as changes occur without us even realizing. Spotted on The Shopping Channel is a great basic fit guide for women.

There is a lot more information as well as videos and a fashion glossary. It's simple, but sometimes we need to get back to basics.

You made me giggle this morning. Thank you! :-)

I'm the sort of person that wonders why all her clothes have gotten smaller! Ugh! How could that happen? I'd rather believe that than think my body has gotten BIGGER! It's called denial. However, a tape measure NEVER lies so we should all do it regularly.

Great measuring tips Veronica. xxx
