I tried, GT. I only tried for an hour and at a few stores, but I did try. And I found nothing but frustration and bad body image feels.
It feels like I'm too big for size A, but not big enough for size B (leaving out actual size amounts just in case people are sensitive about it). Size B stuff looks frumpy on me and size A stuff isn't flattering either.
I know I shouldn't give up, but I feel really discouraged. I wasn't hoping for miracles but I expected I'd end up with SOMETHING instead of just tears.
