Today my confidence took a fucking PLUMMET and I needed to share this. In picture one is an Aztec skirt I got from Topshop, which is a size 10. In all honesty, it doesn't even go past the top of my thighs anymore. In picture two is a grey skirt I ordered from @boohoo in a size 12, something nice and smart to wear for work. In picture three you'll see that I've overlayed both skirts. Low and behold, both are the same size. Trying that size 12 skirt on and having it not go over the top of my thighs made me feel physically sick and I stood and stared at myself in the mirror in disgust for a good 10 minutes. I've suffered from depression now for a good few years but since moving to Lincoln I've come on leaps and bounds, but this was the first time in months I'd felt truly shite and started to think about all the negative body comments I'd had about me in the past, some even from family and friends. But then I remembered my wardrobe where I have a range of clothes, some 8's, some 10's, some 12's, that all fit me well and how companies skew their sizing so much. I also remembered that I might be a bit bigger than I used to be, but I've so never been happier. So to anyone who's ever felt this way by BULLSHIT companies sneakily changing their sizing to make every girl out there feel like complete garbage, remember that you're gorgeous no matter what, and it's about how you feel about yourself that really matters.
And to Boohoo, I fucking hope you go into administration you scumbags 🖕
