Dressing Room Confession #2: Just Suck it in


Have you ever tried a shirt on in a dressing room and had the following thought cross your mind, "Exactly how uncomfortable will I be if I buy this and just suck in my belly 90% of the time I wear it?" Well that is exactly what was going through my mind as I was trying on this top at Urban Outfitters. 

The thing is, this shirt runs extremely small. I would normally wear a small, but I tried on a medium and my little latte gut stuck out a bit. So, I went in search of a large and there weren't any. I found myself honestly contemplating a life of discomfort in this little, doll sized shirt just so I wouldn't have to order it online. I'm all about that instant gratification, ya know? Sometimes I do this out of sheer laziness, just so I don't have to try another size on! 

Anyway, this shirt is great, aside from the tight, short fit. It will look great with so many different things. It looks super cute paired with a skirt as shown on the website. You could also wear it alone with jeans, or under a sweater, with just the cute collar peeking out. 

I think I might just have to order two sizes up and get the large. I think I need this.

Here is a link in case you're interested. Once again, I would size up, especially if you're like me and prefer tops that don't cling to the stomach. 

As always, thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more of my shopping trials and tribulations. Next up, a small beauty haul... 
and socks?


  1. That's why I'm partial to baggy, oversized clothing - no need to worry about my stomach :p

    1. Haha I am too! If it hangs ever so slightly off the shoulder, I am especially pleased :)

  2. I like loose clothing too! No worries on tummy issues :)
    Although you dont have any!
