Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

No, but I don't typically discuss it either. I might say "oh, I have that in a medium and it fits a little large" if someone is trying to decide between sizes for an item. That's about the extent of it.

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

No, I don't. I don't think anyone cares what size I wear, honestly.

I wear a size 12, usualy large or ex large, except with some I can wear a medium, but its just vanity sizing.

I'll admit that if I don't start walking more I will be in a 14 soon and that won't be the end of my world either Smiley Happy

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

I don’t tell people what size I’m wearing.  I don’t ask people either.  

 

I think a lot of people lie about their size and/or weight.  I guess it makes them feel better. 

 

Women’s  sizes are so inconsistent anyway.   I range between 3 different sizes depending on what it is and where it’s from.

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

My weight fluctuates, I've been a 12/10/8 in the last few years. At one point in my life I was a 16, wasn't happy with myself so I wouldn't have wanted to tell anyone. Didn't lie about it though. I'm tall so size is a bit more relative to me. 

 

These days I can wear an 8 or small sometimes, it's strange for me but it's not any sort of accomplishment. Stress and grief and lots of walking. 

 

I would never say Meghan is lying about being a 12. I think size is all about proportion, two people can actually wear the same size and look very different.

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

If Meagan on the View wears a 12, I wear a 2.LOL IMO she's a 16 or 18, due to her bust, I have never seen her in pants. I wear a small/med  or size 10 from clothes at the Q, but I tell people who ask that the Q has vanity sizing. I agree the brands at the Q have sizing that is all over the place, I bought a jean jacket from SG in a size 8 and Laurie Felt tops in an xs.

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

Nope...I have my cloths organized by size LOL. I have my regular size and then sizes for those days when I just don't know what happened. I fit into the pants 2 weeks ago but now I am a size bigger.

You’re fortunate. My feet have gotten bigger. I have some gorgeous shoes, I can’t wear very long but, haven’t been able to part with either!

Re: Do You Lie About What Size You Wear

I'm smart enough to be able to tell if someone is small, medium, or large by looking at them. I would never be so dumb as to lie.
