That Size In Between

yellow scarf

As a size 14 woman, I find myself caught in that weird in between size abyss.  I can wear some clothes from “regular” sized stores, and I can wear plus size as well.  It can actually be hard to find a decent variety in size at times….until now.  One of my favourite lines, Dex Clothing has added size X to their plus size Spring collection.  While I do find a 1X works just fine in certain styles, a size X will allow me to now select pieces that fit me properly when I need to go down a size.

I read a quote one time that said “I wish I was as fat as the first time I thought I was fat.”  I chuckled, because it’s true.  I remember back in high school having those “I’m fat” moments.  In high school I was 5’7 and about 125 pounds and wore a size 6.  I’ve had hips since puberty and HATED them!  Yesterday, both the twins were having a tough day.  They were both needing their mommy at the same time and needed me to hold them while I was warming their bottles.  So there I was, in the kitchen, with those hips I used to hate (which are even more substantial now) helping me carry my babies and offering them support and comfort.  Size is a perception.  When we learn to appreciate (maybe not fully love but get somewhere close to that) those parts of our body we beat ourselves up for, it can be pretty freeing.

    Yeeessss. Size X. I have been in the in-between forever! It was as though no one on the planet was my size. Clothes were always too big or juuust a bit too tight;incredibly frustrating. Thank gawd at some point 10 years ago 34 inseams became available on the semi-regular, prior to that I spent a lifetime in skirts. Size 10.5 shoes next please.
