I am not sure what has happened to the shape of my body over the last couple of months. I am generally the same weight, give or take a kilo, which shouldn’t make any difference. However two purchases made in Aussie recently, from two different fashion stores have seen me – for the first time ever, buy two size 14 tops.
I’m not saying there is anything wrong with being a size 14 – but when I have always been a size 8-10 and I have a chest size that easily fits within the teenage training-bra category, I am trying to figure out how the size 14 fits in with me and my body shape.
One top would be described as casual cotton and is sleeveless with a drawstring around the neck (a little like a hoodie in length and style) but with no sleeves and has a sculptured bottom; the other is a long-sleeved (boxed shaped) work top. Maybe it is more my style in clothing that is changing (not my body shape)? I am definitely noticing what waist I did have is slowly disappearing and soon I will be a square bodied, long-legged, flat chested woman – which really doesn’t sound too appealing from where I am sitting.
Denial is a wonderful thing – I will carry on thinking life is wonderful, my body is a well-oiled, fine-tuned machine; and that as each day it ages – its gets wiser and smarter. Sometimes it is just best to appreciate what you do have, and make the most of it.
