So I went back to Sears today and I bought those size 10 shorts! I also bought the size 12 shorts, and will be wearing them until I feel a little more comfortable wearing a 10.
After a quick shop at Sears, I ventured down the mall a bit. I saw my old familiar "friend." Except.... things weren't the same anymore. We didn't fit together anymore.
I'm sorry, Lane Bryant....
but our relationship is officially OVER.
