Then along comes Chip & Pepper, a size 28 to be exact and even with the extra pounds I was able to fit into them comfortably.. "See?" they whispered. "It's not so bad, you can wear a size 28". I guess that was suppose to make it all better, like the sizes 1, 2, and 3 on a Chico's scale. Later, I found another pair of C & P, same size and it didn't matter so much that I could wear my other 100 pair of jeans. But now I've had about enough of the lies. My Teen Tightwad wears a 28 and I know darn well that I'm waaaaaay bigger than she is. Brands that have cotton, polyester, and more than 2% spandex blends means that a bigger body can fit into a smaller size jeans. So, to say that I wear a size 28 or 30 means a whole lot of nothing and only helps me to retain those bothersome extra pounds.
How about a label that reads "No Size"?
