Trisha Yearwood...seriously?

Okay, so I have the new People magazine, and the cover story is about Trisha Yearwood and how she is now a size 10. She says she was a size 14 before. I have watched her cooking show, and she was no size 14 before...more like 18+, I would say. I'm not being catty, but seriously, there was no way she was a size 14 before. And if she's a size 10 now, then I'm a size 6. I have worked so hard for the last year to get down to a size 8-10, and I know I look thinner than that. The cover photo I would say looks like maybe a size 12. I guess I just don't understand why celebrities always fudge on their sizes like that. She looks great! Why not just be honest? I don't know...am I way off base here? Has anyone else seen this magazine?

I'm a size 8/10, and I think I look slightly smaller than her. Maybe designer clothing runs differently in size. Lol I thought she looked beautiful though, and she claimed she hasn't been that small since 5th grade.

I've always found that the more I spend on a piece of clothing, the smaller the size is. I'm a size 20 when I buy things at Target or Ross, but when I shop at higher end boutiques, I'm a size 18 or sometimes even a 16!

I assume all magazine photos have been altered. Who knows what she really looks like

I know it's annoying how things are often misrepresented in "Hollywood", but I'll say her body is bangin' on that cover. I don't think I've used that term and I probably won't again. Lol.

I agree that sizes range and the better the cut of clothing, the better the sizing. Also, I think it would have to be about how much body fat she has on her stomach, etc.I just bought a People Magazine on Friday and she wasn't in it so I must have bought the "old one" and new ones had not been put out yet.

I've noticed in magazines when they have those articles about women who have lost a ton of weight, the women always seem to "alter" their true weight/size. I understand it's in a national publication, but make it believable! I remember reading one (I forget the name of the magazine) and a woman who was my height (5' 2") said she had lost weight and currently weighed about 115. In her picture she looked heavier than me (and I was about 150 at the time). She still looked good, but it was such an obvious lie!

I guess that's my point - why lie? It's so obvious. Why not say she went from an 18/20 to a 12/14 (which is what I would say is more realistic). She does look good!

It definitely depends on where you shop.

I went to Ann Taylor loft this weekend and I was able to wear 6-8, but when I buy clothes from Macy's or JcPenny I'm 10-12.

I wonder the same thing. These people made a major accomplishment--lifestyle change, dramatic weight loss, etc. Even if they only dropped a couple of sizes, that's amazing! I just wish they would admit the truth. It just seems to set people up for failure, seeing that it's not realistic, if this makes sense.

clothes sizes

My sister formerly worked in a garment factory. She said that when they were under the crunch to get out an order that often tags were put in clothes that did not really match the size. So who knows? Maybe, she was just lucky enough to get an outfit that had the wrong tags that time.

Just another thought...

sizes and shapes and body weight are so different on everyone. I am almost 5"9.5ish and I am someone who wore a size 24W and a 3x at 320 lbs and at 240 I bought a pair of size 10 pants and a M or L shirt(I have 3 pairs that are 10s and others that are up to a 14 misses).

Sizes vary soooo much from store to store and brand to brand. AND the muscle we have plus our frame size and height really affect how our weight looks.

I'm a little sad that women judge each other so harshly....instead of being happy that she feels so confident now.

I remember the same conversation back when Paula Deen was on the cover.

I don't mean to sound almighty or preachy, but this is near and dear to me after the weight loss journey I've been on this last year. That day I wore those 10 jeans for the first time in my life I was near tears of joy....and if someone commented negatively when I posted my pic I think I would have cried from sadness... The night I bought those pants, I took a pic with my size 24W white linen pants....and it took me almost 10 days to post it to facebook for my FRIENDS to see because it seemed so scary to worry about what people would say.

Sorry to be Debbie Downer....

I agree body shapes vary a lot. I wasn't putting anyone down. In fact, I said and believe she looks great. But what's wrong with looking great at a larger size? I'm just saying I don't think she's a size 10, that's all.

Remember that height makes a difference too. A taller person can carry more weight and wear smaller sizes than a shorter person.

She does look like a size 10. She looks a bit smaller than me and I'm wearing a size 12 soon to be size 10.

I just looked at the article online and she's 5' 9" so she's definitely taller than the average woman which means she can carry more weight.

She looks fabulous!

Not directed at you - or anyone in particular - but the tone of the whole thread.

We question whether she's lying, whether she's really in that size, whether she had a mis-sized dress, etc. We compared ourselves, we said we were thinner than that when we wore a 10.

All of these things are what I was responding to.

I just saw the cover of the magazine last night and to me she does look like she is probably a size 10. She looks great!
