Sizes: Good News and Bad News
The Bad On Friday, I mentioned buying a new Rago bra and girdle. The garments arrived Friday afternoon and I tried them on to see how they fit. I ordered the bra and girdle sizes that I usually wear, so I was very disappointed that both items were too small. I put the girdle on OK and it hugged me like a glove, but it was not long enough. Although it is billed as “high waisted,” it barely reached my waistline and was obviously not designed for women who are 5 feet 14 inches tall. I returned it for a refund. The bra was very tight. The cups were a perfect fit for my breasts, but the band was too small by about an inch and a half, so I sent it back and ordered the next larger band size. If you purchase this bra, I advise you to order it one band size larger than the size you think you need. The Good
I joined JustFab about four years ago. On the first day of each month, they email me suggestions of new footwear that match my style requirements. They have a nice selection of shoes and boots at reasonable prices (about $40 a pair), but size 11 was the largest size they offered. Sometimes 11 fits me, so early on, I ordered some heels from JustFab, but I had to return them because they were too small. Even though I stopped buying footwear from JustFab, they kept emailing me new suggestions every month and every month, I rejected their suggestions. (If I don’t reject them, they bill me after the 5th of the month whether I choose something or not.) Retro-girl that I am, I have had a hankering for a pair of white booties. So when the monthly JustFab email arrived on Sunday, I decided to explore their offerings just for the heck of it and lo and behold, they had a pair of white booties to die for… if they only offered them in my size! And then I noticed that they had the boots in size 12! I checked other boots and shoes that they offered and discovered that most of them also had a size 12 option. I had no idea that JustFab started selling size 12’s! When did that happen? Needless to say, I ordered the booties and they are on their way.
