    ok, so i'm an AVID ebay shopper....
    I get as many clothes off there as possible, some are fabulous, others not so fabulous!

    So, i won this lovely Next black skirt with super big bright flowers on it...size 10! It arrived this morning, i tried it on, it was a little snug over my hips but still fit and i decided that i would be wearing it to work tomorrow morning..only to then take it off and see the label!

    SIZE 8!!!

    I cant believe for the life of me that i just tried on, did up and paraded round in a size 8 skirt from Next!
    There is no way on earth i'm a size 8....but do you know what? It just goes to show how wrong clothes sizing is!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Still chuckling!

    Not bad considering i was an 18 4 months ago, and a size 24 3 years ago! :D:D:D

    Woohoo!! Well done!!

    I always thought Next clothes were quite small... mmm, strange that?!

    (Not that I would know mind you - I gave up even looking in Next a LONG time ago).

    But i did buy a pair of white size 12 trousers on the weekend - and they fitted and everything!! I was quite pleased with myself.

    Size 8 tho - that's some achievement!! Congrats!!

    the skirt or the feeling of being a size 8? lol

    The skirt is black with big bright flowers on, its lush!

    The feeling....shock! lol! I stood there mouth open for a good half hour holding the skirt looking at the label just in case it changed!
    ha ha ha

    I am indeed wearing it today though, and it looks good if i do say so myself! but no way on earth will i get in any more size 8's!!!
