    I have been trying for AGES to get into a pair of size 20 jeans. I bought them when I started CD and every week I try them on and can't do them up.

    My size 24s fell off me weeks ago and my size 22s were starting to feel far too big. But still, the size 20s would not do up.

    This weekend my husband told me that I need new clothes. That I can't put it off any longer and my old ones look dreadful because they're hanging off me.


    So I went shopping. And I came home with a pair of boots, 2 tops and a pair of jeans - IN SIZE 18!!!

    They fit perfectly!


    The rogue size 20s sitting in my wardrobe STILL don't fit, but I DON'T CARE!


    I haven't been a size 18 since 2002!

    Well done, Guru! It's so frustrating that the same size on the tag doesn't mean the same size in terms of how much cloth they use! So, ignore those rogue 20s and focus on the 18s! You deserve it :) x

    Hi Guru,

    Well done thats such a great boost for you! Keeps you motivated!

    I hate it when size tags don't reflect the true size.

    By the time the 20's fit you won't even like them anymore!

    Well done

    Hi Guru, lot of ladies on here will be jelous that your husband is insisted you buy new clothes. You must feel good that your old clothes were hanging off you. Your efforts have been worth it.
