This dress is.... kind of my recovery dress in a way.
before i weight restored, i was in a strange place of needing to put clothes on my body but also —not wanting to buy clothes in a smaller size for a body i wasn’t meant to be in and a body i knew would be temporary if i could decrease my ed behaviors. it was hard because i didn’t want to have to deal with even more clothes in my closet that were too small yet again. it can be so activating to have clothes be too small whether or not you have an eating disorder and i know so many of you can relate to the struggle.
i obviously needed to have clothes that fit my body so i got a few things last year. but @asos
was having a sale and @samdylanfinch
surprised me with this dress- except it was in my pre-relapse size. it sat in my closet until a month ago when after months of hard work fighting my ed, it fit. it was a strange feeling. i’ve worked hard to get here and who knows, i might outgrow it too, and i might not. but i’m working really hard to trust my body and allow it to just be instead of running back to the ed.
it feels weird to be sharing this little story when our world feels pretty scary right now, but i also wanted to share this with you all because i fought so hard to get here. 💗
