****LONG POST ALERT****
Mom and I went on a lunch date and decided to walk around the mall! She knew I hadn't had jeans in a while, only jeggings and talked me into trying some on. The last time i tried jeans on from buckle, I had to get 36s or 38s, that were so tight, I think i wore them once and just ended up giving them to someone else because I was so upset with myself I couldn't take it.
Since then I've only had leggings or jeggings because I dreaded having to find my size in a store, let alone end up crying in a dressing room when I couldn't fit into the size I thought I should be.. WELL, my mom grabbed me a size 32 today and I looked at her like she was crazy... She talked me into trying them on anyway. As an associate from Buckle unlocked the dressing room, she asked what size I had gotten because she was going to get me a few more pair to try on, but looked at me kind of funny when I told her 32.
To my surprise the jeans fit GREAT and probably were a little big TBH but I don't think the 31s would do... Anyway, I was super proud of myself for this NSV! Then, the associate had brought me 2 pair of 33s "just in case"... Im not sure why but that really bothered me. So, moral of the story is:
1- I'm so thankful for a mom who is willing to make me try things that are out of my comfort zone and believes in me. Also, who is proud of any type of progress im making in my life!
2-I CAN FREAKING WEAR JEANS NOW!
3-If you are in retail, do not upsize someone because to you they look like they won't fit something that they picked out for themselves.. Let them try it on and ask you for another size of they aren't comfortable.
