I think they used her as a “large”, because she was a lot taller and larger than most of the Chinese women

You got it right, I think. Sizing/clothing manufacturing is likely based on the general size of a particular region's population for the most part.

I imagine that a Small in say New Zealand or Bulgaria is like a Medium or Large in North America, not to mention the average length their inseams: if I buy pants here, I will always have to hem them, unless they are marketed as petite (which I still may have to hem anyway), or cropped (which end up looking like regular pants on me). Pants I've got from China/Korea etc rarely ever need hemming.

I love it when I can find petite clothing - and crops fit like regular length slacks !!!

For a change of pace (and because I have no new clothes to sport), I give you:

OOTD, Bed Edition!

Been in the market for a bed wedge pillow for months. Finally decided on one, put it in my Amazon cart, then the next day is was Unavailable. Arg.

So I McGyered myself one using a feather bed wrapped around a couple firm pillows.

Ta-da!

The Kid said my side of the bed looks so Extra. Ha! Wait till she tries out this setup,..she’ll be a believer soon enough.

P.S. I run colder than Mr. so I fold that blue blanket in half for extra warmth on my side. Its a weighted blanket we got as an Xmas present and I love it, but sometimes when I have to pee in the middle of night, im too weak from grogginess to get out from under it or put it back over me when im done (it’s effing heavy!) 😜

In any case, can’t wait to sleep tonight!

Nothing beats a woman for creative problem solving Ms.SSS.

I don’t have the problem of weighty bedding at night holding me back from getting up to pee. Sometime I’m just way too tired to get up. Or I know I just went an hour before & refuse to accept I need to go again.

Speaking of bed - isn’t it just about your bed time now? (It’s almost 3pm your tomorrow here.)

Snuggle up. Sweet dreams & don’t let the bed bugs bite.

Love it! It looks like my side of the bed! 😂 My husband says I’m from The Princess and The Pea with all my layers of bedding. 🤣

OOTD: Bed Edition, Update:

My pseudo-pillow-wedge-feather-bed hybrid was a success!! I think I need to mass produce these suckers and sell them. LOL.

Since the feather bed that I folded in half is so pouffy, when I lay down in the middle of it, the sides go up. Its like I'm in a nesty-cocoon! Love it.

Mr., however, is not a fan. Says he feels like he is being "denied access". LOLOLLOLzzzz.

Edited to add: Hmmm...looks like this product is already out there...for babies. LOLOLOLzzsss

Hey guys, remember me? LOL... I fell off the bandwagon and gained 20 pounds :0. Stupid COVID... Anyhoo, I'm BACK and ready to get back to seeing you great ladies and gents. It's been a while, and I need to get back on track and be focused.

I should really also take a hard stance on my pee. We're the ones in charge, right? LOL

I am a (self-diagnosed) borderline insomniac. But now that I have an awesome bed set up, I may sleep more (or at least lay down more and maybe just stare at the ceiling).

OMG of course I remember Shanza! The supermodel-tall fabulousness who once accidentally took a pic of her daughter in the background in the bathroom (i loved that pic!)

Welcome back! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Met up with friends today. We met at college 38 years ago. We’re quite different but somehow we work together as dear friends. It’s been a couple of years since the three of us have been together but keep in touch by phone & individually so today was special.

I’m very in love with puffed sleeves at the moment - though they’re annoying to Iron. They’re cool & hide my saggy upper arms 😁.

I have zero reasons to wear anything notable these days. My coat is always on.
I am sorting through things to donate and came a dress I forgot I owned. I think I will keep it although I suspect it will be a long time before I can wear it.

The losers (aka the returns):
Faux leather pants - look like a trash bag!
Skinny jeans - way too high of a waist, super mom jeans
Lantern top- not horrible but just doesn’t do anything for me

The return process is easy and free, so I’ll be ordering from again! Fun way to try new clothes and very cheap!

@ChubRub : second all your decisions except maybe for the jeans? they look pretty flattering on you to me. Makes your legs look longer, and your boobs bigger, lol.

I wanna see your new fab bod sporting some body-con dresses!!1 ❤️

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
