I bought a $250 black wool winter coat three seasons ago (2008) to take with me when I went to Melbourne for the All Females with Liz, Shelley and Shannon.
In 2009 I was just coming off the back of a competition and was still restricting. The coat still fit perfectly.
Last winter I was in the middle of healing from years of dieting. I could just squeeze into the coat but by the end of winter I could not longer button it up and it felt tight and uncomfortable.
Today I pulled that coat of the closet because I’m off to class tonight and it’s getting cool. I slipped it on and buttoned it up effortlessly. It’s a beautiful coat and I’m happy I can once again button it up when the chilly wind blows.
