Facing your fears: Issy tries on jeans

I hate buying jeans. So much so I think its been a good 18 months since I bought a new pair because the idea of trying on jeans literally makes my skin crawl.

Shopping for jeans in the past has led to this becoming my idea of living hell. I will never forget a shopping trip to Hollister with my mum. After trying on around twenty pairs I discovered, in Hollister sizing, I am size XL.

I would be perfectly fine with this if I wasn’t usually a size 8/10 in majority of clothing brands. It made me feel so anxious look at my body in such a negative way.

Now, I am more confident in my body and less influenced by brand sizing I went out to face my fears.
