The weather has been either cool as in frost or warm here the past week or so which means getting dressed each day has been difficult. Layers are my friend. I have also realized since purging more than half my wardrobe that I need a few things.

  • Tanks to wear under low dresses and t-shirts
  • Spring tops
  • Light weight cardigans
  • A couple more mid-length skirts

While that doesn’t sound like a lot, and I never purged any of these items, I am losing weight thanks to the help of Plexus products and I am between sizes, or I should say, I am different sizes depending on the fabric or brand.

Today I was able to wear a green top in a size large and a dark brown skirt in an XL. However, I tried on two dresses before that outfit, one in a L and one XL and neither fit me. I am confused about this “true to size” thing I hear about clothing all. the. time. Clearly there is no standard sizing and if I go buy a size chart I could be in a large or a 3x and I just tossed my 2x and 3x clothes because they were FALLING off. I don’t think anyone needs to see my bra strap and shoulder through the neck hole of a shirt, and I shouldn’t have to tie a skirt on and still worry about it falling off. So I am truly confused.

I have wanted a couple of pieces from the Deborah and Co online store for quite some time. They have a really cute mustard yellow shirt and a grey striped top paired together that I absolutely love but I have no clue if I need a L, XL or 2X as I have never tried their clothing before. I would also love a denim skirt from them, they are beautiful!

I did receive as part of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle a free Deborah and Co infinity scarf which I am in LOVE with!! It is sooo soft and feminine and has been helping to hide that chest of mine that is in need of some tanks.

I would love to know where y’all shop and which clothes you find to be forgiving as far as size goes. Being on an extremely tight budget, especially considering these are clothes I may not need in the future as I continue to lose weight, is making it even more difficult. So is living in Canada. Some inexpensive places make generic clothing designer prices once they factor in shipping!

  1. I can sympathize! I make my clothes which helps avoid some of that.

    • I would love to make my own clothes and I do know how to sew, unfortunately nowhere in town has fabric and I am in Canada which often makes ordering fabric online very expensive for shipping! I do find that the farmers market in the summer often has modest clothes made by people from the city so at least there is that!! 😀
