Maybe this was covered, if so, apologies Does anyone find the mirrors in Next grossly unflattering? I was in there today and was shocked that I looked huge (size 12) from the back and basically depressingly awful. Then I came home and felt I didn't quite as bad??! Is it just me?
'Did you really look as big as a size 12 from the back?' Well I know how it sounds but ..hmm.. I dunno I just thought I looked huge then it started a whole (bad) thought process in my head about is a 12 really a 12 these days or is it what used to be a bigger size?
Yes but if you think you look gross in the shop, you wouldn't buy it surely? I'd go for the mirrors making you look slimmer, well maybe not 10lb slimmer, maybe 5 or 6. That way at least you'd think you looked well in it and buy it as a result.
