Who hasn't had this happen to them?
You find something festive that you would like to slip into.
It seems a little small, but you're QUITE SURE that in recent years, you've worn this size. So you work with it.
You try it on different ways.....
From different angles you examine yourself. Finally, you admit that it does feel A LITTLE tight.
Someone offers you a larger size, which you find highly insulting.
I mean, it might be a tight fit, but you still look GOOD!
