I saw a skirt I liked on eBay yesterday but when I read the description the seller had written that she was selling it because she had lost 5 stone. Firstly, I don't care. Secondly, I might be a bit overweight but I do not have 5 stone to lose. Thirdly, the key to selling something is not to make a potential buyer feel totally shit about themselves. I know, they're just smug about it, but I'm not bidding on that skirt now because I just feel fat!
but Foxy could be lying. Maybe the weight loser sellers are lying because they wish it was true they lost weight but they actually gained 200 lbs. Or someone owned the item but died. Or immigrated.. or decided to go into a convent or went trans...
I put sadly no longer fits on my listings as it is true and doesn't offend anyone - sometimes I have lost weight other times have gained Of course things sometimes only get worn once for all sorts of reasons I'm always honest in my listings have been selling stuff on eBay for over 15 years and have 100% positive feedback My mantra is not to sell anything I wouldn't buy myself and describe clearly with good accurate photos
Because if you say you've gained weight as I buyer I would wonder if the item was stretched and not true to size anymore. I've got jeans that are definitely a size bigger then the label because I'm squeezed into them.
