I read about this phenomenon. I probably experienced it before myself without really paying attention as I worked my way through the various sized clothes in my closet. But finally I woke up and realized my pants had gotten longer!
Every morning I get out of bed in my old nightshirt and throw on some ratty baby-blue flannel pants to wear around the house until I make my next clothing move, hopefully into workout attire. Lately I have been pulling up those pants a lot. Not thinking much of it. I kept stepping on them. Annoying really.
Then it dawned on me:) They were longer because they hung lower because I am skinnier!
And not only are they longer, I also have to keep pulling up the waist in the back when I sit down at my computer or risk looking like a teen boy with my pants at mid-butt and my underwear showing. I had gradually adjusted to the waist riding lower and lower, enjoying that the pants weren’t tight on my middle or hips, not really paying attention to what the droop meant. It was just my ratty old morning outfit and I just wasn’t thinking about it.
Yesterday I was shopping for exercise clothes for my upcoming spa vacation and came across some pajama bottoms on sale. Calf length. A smaller size. And here I sit in them now. I am claiming this as a true non-scale victory:)
How about you? What NSVs have you experienced? And did it take you a while to recognize them as such?
