Or rather, I ordered tops I really like but will fit me when I lose 8kg maybe. Now they fit me like a glove.

Do I keep or return? What will you do?

I've Done the same - bought some gorgeous jeans in a smaller size to help me focus on loosing weight.

you don't know that the items will hang right even if you can fit into them

I have three pairs of jeans in a size smaller waiting for me to finally lose weight. I bought them in the sale because Next changed the fabric/style and I can't get any in my size.

But this got me thinking...
