Thanksgiving brings with it many joys, most of which come in high-calorie forms. Others involve sitting around the table with loved ones, sharing feelings of thanks, love, and sometimes, overindulgence.
Oh, but also, you've got to look nice. If you see the fam only a few times a year, making a good impression is key (that way they don't worry about you up until the family vacation in June). On Thanksgiving, you obviously want to guard against tummy terror but you can't exactly show up to Auntie's house in sweats, either. Avoid Mom's stern glances and an incredibly uncomfortably evening (for this reason anyway) with the cute, polished, and yes, stretchy pants that await you. Gobble, gobble.
