The other day I had a vision. I imagined a place where clothing actually fit me. Where things were attractive yet comfortable. When I went into a store, I tried on 1 pair of pants and they were absolutely perfect in everyway.
Then.... reality hit.
I used to like shopping for clothes. What girl doesn't? But in the past years it really seems to be more grief than it's worth. I need to learn to sew and just make all my stuff, because clothes do not fit me. I've always had issues, but now I have even more issues.
One size of pants is too small, the next size is too big. One size of shirt fits in the length, but it is too tight in the shoulders. The next size up fits in the shoulders but is more like a dress than a top. I come from the " just because you can get it on doesn't mean it fits" way of thinking.
Maybe it's me? I'll admit that I can be picky. I want what I want... is that so bad?
I'm starting to understand nudist colonies more and more. Except that would never work because I'm not a "naked" person.
I went shopping last weekend and ended up with some cute stuff. But it was really like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I tried on probably 25 pairs of pants, to end up with 2 that semi fit me. They start out fitting in the morning, but by the end of they day they've grown substantially. You get to a point where you have to just settle for something or end up wearing shorts in the rain...
I can't imagine that I'm the only person who has this problem? I know i'm not built like the average girl, but really who is? Sasquatch women need clothes too!
Speaking of sasquatch, my poor kid. I've bestowed by genes upon her apparently. She is now in the 95% percentile for height. She is freshly 5 months and has been wearing 6-9 month clothes for the past 3 weeks. Everyone who sees her thinks she is at least 6 months old.
I guess the frustration of trying to find clothes that fit will bridge the generations!
Waiting for James to arrive!
