    Hi, this might seem a silly question but it is genuine. I have some reviews to write from before I lost weight, of course I will be writting them as the size that I was at the time and the experience that I had but I want to know if I write it as past tense or present as to avoid confusion? Apologies for the silly question.

    Hey KMM

    That's entirely up to you!

    I would suggest past tense as you're reviewing something you've tried rather than something you are in the process of trying.

    (Eg: I write all of mine in past tense as I'm reviewing a past event of me trying the product: "I bought this item..." "I found the fit to be..." "I felt sexy/stunning/like a sack of potatoes" etc). 

    When it comes to lingerie, I always add a small paragraph saying "I am 5'5" tall, and a UK dress size 10-12 and found the garment fit me perfectly/well/badly!"

    So perhaps at that part you could say "when I bought this garment I was a UK size XX" and comment on the fit that way?

    Hey J-Curious

    What do you mean share your HRT? 

    Do you mean share your journey? 

    I hope you don't mean sharing hormones! 🤪
