Default Fiona mystery partially solved

Well, I think I figured out the problem with my clothes. Most of my old clothes are plus sized (yes, shock and horrors to those of you size 4s out there who think youre fat
 
), but my size is also available in regular clothes too. What I didn't think of is that the plus size is cut bigger than the regular clothes of the same size.
So I need to go to the regular store and get my old size, or go to the plus section and get a lower size.

As for the feet, some size 11s still fit, and some are small. So I'm just going to have to look around.

Holy cow.. what an easy and wonderful fix!!! I tell you, it's one of the very best parts of losing weight, being able to shop in the "regular" clothing sections instead of the plus sizes.
 
Congrats!

Ya that makes sense. Even if it isn't a plus size if it has the W like a 14W or 16W for women's they are cut bigger. I also know that the junior clothes are way smaller. I can fit a 10 in regular sizes, but cannot even squeeze into a 13 in juniors. I guess that just means I am too old to trying to put my big ass in those clothes anyway!

I knew it was something odd about the sizing. Good job!
