So I started the summer with two pair (pairs?) of shorts.
I've always been more of a capri kinda gal but I kept seeing "larger" women walking around in them and also wearing sleeveless shirts so I jumped right on that band wagon.
Back to the shorts: one pair fit me perfecting in early June. I looked stunning, believe me. Darn it, I don't have a picture - you'll just have to take my word.
The other pair was loose around the middle but no biggie because I stopped tucking shirts in a decade or two ago. A little extra breathing room is always a good thing, right?
Long about the end of July I started to notice a change.
The perfectly fitting shorts must have shrunk in the dryer - damn machine - because they were still rather comfy if I was standing but sitting was a different story. hmmmm
Then the second phenomenon occurred.
You guessed it - those loose babies fit like a dream now. hmmmm
So unless I'm going to an event where you stand the whole damn time I'm down to one pair of shorts.
Good thing they wash well . . . and summer's almost over.
