How do you deal with in between clothing sizes?



Recommended Posts

I used to wear 2X in scrub pants, but now they are falling off, but i still cant fit into a 1X comfortably? My workout pants are also starting to fall off. I dont have the nerve to wear fitted clothes to the gym yet so all my stuff is pretty baggy, but i'm not there to be cute, right? LOL! Wish someone would invent a way to adapt your clothes until you are comfortably in the next size. Nope I cant sew, even a button causes me problems! LOL Just wondering how others are handling this dilemma if they have it?:huh:

I had things taken in. It was about $10.00 for a pair of pants. Much cheaper than buying new for work clothes. I work in an office, so I wear professional clothes. You might also try different brands. They might fit differently.

I feel your pain! LOL I used to wear 26-28's, but now they're too big, but as many of us know, there is no 24-26 size!! BLAH! There's 18-20, 20-22, 22-24, 26-28.....where is the 24-26??? There's my rant for the day! LOL

I started out in a 3X and am currently between a 12 & 14. I too wore scrubs on my job. I found that the draw string ones could be worn much longer than the elastic waisted ones.

Have any friends that can sew? My mom sews all my pants so I can wear them as long as possible! Buy things with drawstrings whenever possible. For the workout pants, if you can roll them down, put on a belt and roll the pant over it to keep them up and the belt on. I want to lose another 27 lbs before I even consider buying new clothes so I'm just trying to wear whatever I can that sort of works. I look pretty terrible at the gym! Yesterday I wore black & pink nike's, a gray tshirt, and navy blue capri's...so you're not the only one!

I also work in an office and have fairly expensive dress pants that I'm going to continue wearing as long as possible. I wish I could look cute at work, but I am not investing in an expensive pair of pants that I can wear for a month or two. Old navy has some AWESOME plus size yoga capri's that are very stretchy and a size too small isn't too bad, they actually hold you in very nicely. So look into them, the price is right also.

I agree with the scrubs right now I'm to small for XL, but the large is like skin tight. It was either pulling up my XL pants every 10 min or so and they looked like parachute pants on me. Or deal with somewhat uncomfortable pants. I chose the latter after deciding my larger pants were just to annoying. Hopefully I'll lose an once or two in my hips (the waist is completely fine) and they'll feel much mor comfortable

I would go with the Drawstring to keep them up.

I don't know about where you live, but here you trade in your old scrubs, and they pay you so much twords a purchase. Now that can be Brand New or Something that someone has traded in, like you would have done.

These are Scrub Shops So you might want to look around, and see if you can find anything like this, and purchase some Scrubs.

I actually pulled my 18 sized pants off without unbuttoning them yesterday :lol: I can fit in 16's pretty good right now and almost to a 14 that will be tight for awhile. I really need to get rid of my 18's because they are of no use to me anymore. They are annoying to wear.dry.gif

I guess we need to look at this as a GOOD thing! Congrats to all of you :P

I'm just getting back into my size 14 pants and skirts. I have quite a few sizes of pants right now for work and tons of jeans, but my nice stuff is all too small still.

I'm buying new workout t-shirts at Walmart for 5 bucks a pop. I plan to take some of my business attire to the tailor and have them insert darts or whatever they do to make you look good.

I once heard Jackie O had a fashion philosophy that clothes look best when they fit properly, so I'm going to emphasize my new, smaller waistline! It's like getting a whole new wardrobe!

Clothes that are too big make me feel thin, i have a very bad habit of wearing too large clothes. So by the time i thought i actually needed new oned i was well down into the next size. I wasnt dealing with corporate wear so everday clothes are pretty cheap.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
