This dress is from Talbot's. What makes that so important? It is size 6 and is made of cotton with no spandex. I would not be able to button it or wear it if I was not small enough. A person can wear a size smaller dress or pants if there is some stretch in the garments, but no way to wear a size if made of pure cotton.
Along the way of losing weight, I developed many "non-scale" successes. Being able to wear smaller size clothing has been a YUGE motivation for me. YAY
