A FRUSTRATED wife was left devastated after her mother-in-law called her fat.
The woman took to mumsnet anonymously and claimed her mother-in-law called her fat and told her she was taking her clothes as she would never fit in them again, and even her own husband agrees with his mum.
The mum said she is currently a size 12 after giving birth to her child almost two years ago, and has only gone up two dress sizes since before she had a baby.
But when her mother-in-law came to visit the other day, she told the mum she should give her the clothes as she would never fit into them again and she could gift them her sister-in-law.
In the post she wrote: "My sister-in-law is older and has more than enough money to buy herself a few dresses.
"I politely told my mother-in-law that I will lose the weight it’s just I haven’t really tried to yet."
Her mother-in-law responded: "“no you won’t, your child is nearly two-years-old now and you are still fat.”
At this point the mum was pretty upset with her mother-in-law's comments and spoke to her husband about the matter, but it did not go the way she thought.
Her husband responded: "Well she’s right and there is no point keeping clothes you can’t wear anymore."
The mum also points out that a lot of the 'nice dresses' her mother-in-law wants her to give away are ones her mother-in-law bought her for her wedding, which is a common tradition and says she has never heard of someone requesting them back.
She also said: "They are my clothes after all and I feel weird giving them away because my mother-in-law has decided I will never fit into them."
The mum pointed out that even her own mum agrees with her mother-in-law, despite the fact the mum hasn't even tried dieting.
She writes: "I’m two dress sizes up from what I was before my child, I don’t know why they keep making me feel like I can never be what I was.
"It’s actually making me eat more!"
Many people asked the mum what the situation has been like with her mother-in-law, to which the mum claimed she was generally very cruel and was not sure why her antics this time hurt more than usual.
The mother-in-law also told her recently that she would be coming to the house next week to look through her wardrobe and take anything she fancies.
Many people gave the mother-in-law the benefit of the doubt and said that she probably wouldn't go through the wife's wardrobe.
The wife responded: "She has zero boundaries she will have no problem opening my wardrobes. She once complained she was trying to open a suitcase in my wardrobe but couldn’t as I locked it!"
People reading the post were shocked by the mother-in-laws comments and the woman's lack of support form her husband.
One user exclaimed: "They are both (your partner and his mother) being cruel. Size 12 isn't fat."
Another asked: "Can you divorce your husband and be done with both of them?"
"If I were you I would hide the clothes in a suitcase in the loft when no one else was around. If anyone asks where they are say you donated them to charity." The user added; "Your husband needs to take a long hard look at himself. You two are a team, he's meant to support you."
A third user commented: "Don't let her in the house. If you can't stop her, put a lock on your bedroom door."
