The Clothes Make the (Wo)man
Tuesday, February 23, 2021
I've been wearing out my exercise pants for a year now, but not because I've been exercising. Oh, no, no concern about that! But since they were also pajama pants, lounge pants, grocery shopping pants, everything but work pants, and now, they are work pants, they get worn 23.75/7.
I love this brand called The Girls. The pants lasted for a long time and were well-made. But sometime in the last year and a half, the website disappeared. Boo!
I bought some Jockey pants, but they had been a little tight. Some nights, I wouldn't be able to stand it, others would be okay, but never great.
Recently, I purchased some Hanes drawstring pants from Amazon, and I feel so comfortable, confident, and thin in them. They have POCKETS.
I've been walking around my house like one of the Project Runway models, hands in my pockets, slouching down the hallway.
But make no mistake. These are huge pants. I took them out of the plastic packaging and let them unfurl in my hands, and my husband laughed, because my face was like that gritted teeth emoji.
Even so, I've been popping my hip as I turn away from the sink and bouncing around. It's so weird how a gigantic pair of pants can make me feel so thin. Maybe I should size up and then I'll feel really thin!
