I’ve finally booked an aboard holiday, and with much excitement I embarked on the exciting holiday clothes hunt.
I knew I needed new clothes, as its been a few years since my last holiday, and with my hip issues and medication, I’ve gained weight. Which is depressing enough, but I was confident I’d find something nice to wear.
And so we hit the shops, now with surgery coming up in less than 3 months, I needed clothes that are as cheap as possible, in case my weight changes again. So my obvious choice was #Primark.
I managed to find numerous size 14 things I liked, and couldn’t wait to try at home, I also found some pieces I loved in #Asda of all places.
My joy was short lived however once home, ALL of my size 14 from primark were like size 10’s!! My #Asda size 14 fit, but not #Primark. I’ve had similar issues from #H&M too.
I know I can swap the sizes, but I fear according to #Primark I’m more of a size 20 and although it doesn’t dent my pride, I think of those that are affected by numbers and society telling them what is and isn’t acceptable. Is this a price of cheap clothing? Is this the consequence of fast fashion? I could agree on many counts, but having been successful with #Asda who were as cheap as #Primark, but definitely better quality and better true sizing, you really can have cheap clothes, and have them for many years (as I literally will wear my clothes to their natural end, not because fashion trends dictate the end to me)
But its not all bad at #Primark the shoes are always fabulous and last me many years, and their flip flops too. And of course the all important #Unicorn inflatable couldn’t be bought anywhere else. So I had my successes there too. And boy oh boy is this inflatable HUGE!!
