Hey Friends - size 16 trousers!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I bought a new pair of trousers today and they were a size 16. I genuinely think the last time I bought a pair of size 16 trousers was in 1978. Now I know the sizes have probably expanded, Laura Ashley is probably a generous sizer, the style was helpful.......but hey I am thrilled skinny!

    On the contrary, RR, I don't think LA's trousers are generous at all! Well done you...my goodness it's a long time since 1978. It must be wonderful for you. Imagine that...and the overall weightloss is staggering. It's been a long haul for you but so much success. You are an inspiration to us all.

    I only wish I could get into size 16 trousers....16 on top is ok cause I have narrow shoulders but the bottom and tum are another story altogether.

    Congratulations on your phenominal success.

    Well done Ruth, i'm so pleased for you. I can get in size 16 trousers, doing them up however is a different matter (if i don't want to breathe and don't mind an enormous overhang i'm fine) :lol:

    Like quill-drill has mentioned, you are an inspiration, you certainly were to me when i started!!

    Congratulations x
