Almost only counts in horse shoes
These are clothes that, in our cases, fit well up top but are snug and/or short on the bottom but another 10-20 lbs off could make all the difference in how they fit. That's great but here's the problem, especially when dealing with a shirt that is too short...unless your torso shortens, it's never going to fit! I know your gut can go down and not push the shirt out as far but we're talking shirts that by the time it fits well on the bottom, the top is going to likely look ridiculous. We both have been hanging on to those clothes for about 2 years now. I would pull out certain tops I really liked to see if they fit yet and the top would be even more baggy than the last time but the bottom still hit in the same bad place. You know that place. The one that cuts just high enough on your gut that the wrong move will expose your muffin top (or the Spanx suckin' in your muffin top) or the top you'll spend all day self conscious about and pulling down. Yeah. It's time to get rid of those. We did.

Do you keep those clothes that "almost fit" even though you know the likelihood of them being a flattering fit is low?
