2 inches, $65

August 27, 2006

Size-mic Silliness


2 inches. That’s my magic number. However much poundage that translates into, I don’t care. I just want to put on 2 inches. In diameter.


Size 0 just doesn’t work for me anymore, because ladies’ sizes continue to shift upwards, and in stores where clothes in size 0 are too small, you can bet that size 2 will be too big. When, as in the majority of stores, size 0 is too BIG, I’m just SOL!

Thusly, I am embarking on my two-inch plan. I want to put on two inches, all around. Magically, waistlines will fit, hips in dresses, skirts and pants will fit, tops will fit. In addition to the party I get to throw when I hit 100 pounds, I will be allowed a new outfit when I gain those two inches.

And if I also manage to grow taller by two inches, well, I’ll entirely eliminate that tailor’s bill of $65 for hemming lengths, and trimming waistlines. Or will that just incur extra charges to try to let out waistlines and hemlines of existing clothes? Hmmm …..

    Sounds like we run into similar problems but opposite! Sometimes I have trouble finding clothes big enough or long enough. At 6’6, sometimes this is tough.

    Somehow I doubt you will get sympathy from very many others though on this one. I think most girls wouldn’t mind having your problem.

  2. Thanks for the backup! 😉

    You’re right, I have only ever had a couple people be sympathetic to my cause. But I have it on good authority (from a registered dietician) that it is just as difficult for an ectomorph to gain weight as it is for an endomorph to lose weight. And it’s just as sad when a clerk looks at you and says, “Oh, they don’t even make that size.”

    You are mini! 🙂

    I’m lucky I stopped growing at 6′ 3″ and my feet are size 13 which is the biggest standard shoes you can get in stores usually. Selection in shoes is a lot better than it used to be especially in the US (I grew up in Britain). I was used to going into a shoe store and saying “what have you got in 13”. Maybe there’d be something.

  4. Moom: You and I could go shopping fruitlessly for HOURS together! I shop with a girl friend who’s a size 11 shoe and she too has the worst luck finding anything that’s not a flipflop. We’ll have to try your size takes all tactic next time 🙂
