Of course I'm excited about this - I rather like shrinking out of clothes. But I can't help but feel frustrated that these particular size 12 pants are too big, while many other size 14 pants I own and other I try on in stores are still fitting (or are even a bit tight), while most other size 12 pants (including H&M pants) don't even come close to making it over my hips.
Honestly, I'm jealous of men and their pants sizing: waist sizes. Why can't women's pants be like that? Most jeans are and that seems to work out just fine. So why is it that any non-denim pants have to be sized starting at 0 and going up by two?
I just don't get it.
(Although now I'm tempted to try to find these pants again and try on a size 10, if only for the ego boost!)
