Plus, losing weight is a good enough excuse, right?
This is my old shirt that was actually too tight on me 2 years ago. And now that it's faded, I was just looking for a good excuse to come along to get some more LSU gear. This is an XL Adult size:

It still fits pretty well, so I will definitely keep it in the rotation.
I went to a local sports store here and to be honest, I really don't like to clothes shop. Ever. So I tried the "hold-it-up-against-me-to-see-if-it-looked-like-it-would-fit" method. I ended up grabbing 2 shirts that looked cute, paid the man, and exited and went on my merry way. 8 minutes and I was outta there. I know that there is a lesson somewhere in this paragraph that I need to learn, but apparently I am immune to it.
I think the main deal is that I just don't like trying on clothes. It was such a source of a downward spiral that would lead to a full blown depression that even today, I try to avoid doing it at all costs. And I guess, I can justify it in my mind and think, well, if it doesn't fit, I can either bring it back or just wait around until I can wear it.
So back to the actual topic at hand and venting about women's sizes before I go off on a tangent. I picked up the 2 shirts and they looked like they would fit. I got home to try them on and this happened:

This is a Women's Large. Adorable and vintage Tiger t-shirt that I absolutely love. Too tight and the muffin top thing is going on . So, I'll have to wait to wear it. Loki even disapproves.
I tried this one one next:

I think part of the fault lies with the fact that manufacturers want to make every single thing that's branded "Women's" sized to be skin tight. Seriously? I am not a stick. Skin tight will not look good on me for a very, very, very long time, if ever! If I were not as "blessed" up top either, it may not be quite as bad. But either way, I'm still bummed that the women's sizes do that to us.
Until they get this right, I will stick to my loose, flowy clothing and t-shirts that do not make me look like a Stay Puft Marshmellow man.
Here's a pic of my lovely boy "assistant".
