Why I Don't Give A Toss About The Size of My Clothes

Sunday, 17 June 2018




First off, I want to start by apologizing for the not-so-blog-worthy photos that are making it in this post... It's surprisingly difficult to get good outfit photos when you live on your own and all your friends and family are too busy to help out, lol. Also, excuse my white legs. Seems like they've somewhat missed out on all the sunny weather (despite me constantly wearing the shortest shorts I could possibly find).

This month, H&M finally changed the size of its clothing. For as long as I can remember, I have always struggled to get clothes that fit the first time in h&m... I love the clothes there, but it can be a bit much when you have to try 4 or 5 different sizes of jeans to find the perfect fit. 


In most stores, if I saw a top I liked I would pick up a size 10, and head to the checkout. But shopping in h&m is a completely different story... and I know I'm not the only one who has had to buy clothes that are apparently 3 sizes up from what I usually buy. 

Yup, I own a size 16 shirt from h&m.

The thing is, I really couldn't care less about what number is on the label of the clothes I wear. I know that different shops have different measurements and that there are some shops -like h&m- that have really wacky, ridiculous measurements. I know that size is just a number- and a subjective one at that. And I also know that no number can define who I am or how much I am worth.


The size of clothes that I wear has no correlation with my self-worth- and it never will. To me, the purpose of these silly little numbers has nothing to do with how big or small I am... the numbers are supposed to be there to help me pick out clothes that fit well and comfortably on my completely unique body.

I'm not going to lie- I have my down days, and there are a billion things that I wish I could change about my body. But when it all boils down? I love my body. I am happy with how I look, and I feel confident enough to wear shorts and skirts without worrying what people will think about my slightly flabby thighs. 

When I go shopping for clothes, there are two key things that I consider before I buy anything

1. Does it look good?
2. Does it feel good?

And at no point in time do I stop to think about what size it is. If it's a size 10 that looks and feels good? Great- I'll probably go for it! And if it's a size 16 that looks and feels good? Then why the heck would I let that stop me from buying -or feeling confident about wearing- something that I like?

Adios, xo

  3. Great post! It really annoys me that the sizes of women's clothes differs so much depending on the store... I own XS to XL in my closet right now, and I totally agree with your post :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Literally, same!! It's not something that's ever bothered me, but it really angers me, because I KNOW how much clothes sizes matter to some people, and having to buy a 'larger' size can really knock a girls confidence.

  4. Yaaaas queen! I seriously hate how different women's sizes are no matter where you go. It literally does not matter what number or letter is on the tag as long as you feel confident in what you are wearing. You look amazing, girl! Keep on bossin' it!

  5. Indeed, clothes size doesn't define us, we should all love our body in all sizes.
