    I'm a size 14 and there's this leather jacket I absolutely love the look of but it's £100 and I don't want to spend that money on a piece of clothing that's a size I don't want to be much longer.

    Should I buy a size 14 anyway and just buy nicer clothes when I'm a 10-12, or should I buy it in a 12 as a 'goal'? :o: I'd be really disappointed if I lost the weight but couldn't buy it anymore, or if I bought a 14 and it became too big ...

    I find that leather jackets feel nicer to wear if it is a size bigger... x

    Thats what I do.
    It feels great to wear something you've wanted and feel much better about yourself too

    I say buy it in a 12, it would be a good incentive to lose weight if you want to.

    I usually buy jackets in a bigger size anyway, so I can fit layers underneath and the slightly longer arms feel so snug!
