The Struggle Is Real

“Oh, I give up!  I will never find a nice dress that will fit this oversized body of mine.”

“Relax mom.  So, you haven’t found it yet.  There is still time to look.  But you have to look and not waste any more time, because you won’t have time to send it back again and get another if it doesn’t fit.”

“You don’t understand Paula, I am not the size I should be, and society looks past those of us larger women and rarely design anything worthwhile for us to wear.  It is infuriating trying to buy clothes.  But I will find something for your wedding.”

“Maybe you can order two sizes and keep the one that fits next time.”

“That might work.  I have one more site I can log onto and check otherwise it is down to the wedding shop and a price three times higher.  But I promise not to embarrass you showing up in jeans.”

“Oh Mom, you are being dramatic.”

“Just keep your fingers crossed for me.”
