    I went shopping today, supposedly to get stuff for my eldest son's birthday party and xmas pressies, but I ended up wandering around Debenham clothes department. How did that happen??

    Anyway, my eye was taken by a Betty Jackson short swing coat, with big dramatic buttons, just the sort that Jackie Onasis used to wear (if you are old enough to remember that). It was a size 12, far to small for me, but off went my coat and on went this little number. Oh my god it fit and it looked fab! No... I looked fab:party0011:. I actually laughed out loud. But it was about £130 and I intend losing at least another stone, so back it went.

    I wandered around with a grin on my face but then got to thinking that it was a swing coat and probably on the big size. So I tried on another size 12 - a very fitted short jacket, with a belt. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. It was a perfect fit. £120 though, so back it went.

    What a brave new world all this is. :gimi:

    congratulations knine. it is fab isn't it. Hopefully we all remember how good it was to get into the smaller sizes as we go back to regular food, and it will help us to maintain our weight.

    Thanks all and tahnks slushy for the website details. There is a coat there which looks very similar to the coat I tried on but I'm a bit confused about the price difference. I'm going to nip into town to have another look and if its the same, grab the one from the website.

    I wouldn't want you to think I'm a size 12 though. My bottom is very firmly stuck in size 14s!
