Help finding clothes before surgery



Recommended Posts

Hello to the ladies. My question is to you. I have outgrown my pants during the quarantine and I need to find petite pants in a lightweight fabric online. I’m having such trouble locating anything good in the only stores open right now near me. I’m at least a 3 x and very wide in my hips. Can anyone make some suggestions so I have something to wear other than my pajamas for the summer? I would be very thankful for any advice or links to online stores. Thank you.

when I was SMO, I used to buy leggings - and capris - from online plus-size retailers like Woman Within and Roaman's (sp?). Not high-quality, but not expensive - and they held up for me pretty well. They're stretchy so they'd last me through several pounds. I've given away all that were over a 2x because they'd fall off me now, but I still have some of my 2x's that I wear for yoga or to just lounge around the house in (I normally wear a size 12 pant, so 2x's are way too big for me and I'd never wear them except for things like yoga and lounging around, but for those things, they still work and they're great!)

Don't shop at Roaman's. You are petite and there pants and shirts run long.

didn't know that, but then I'm not short, so it wouldn't have applied to me!

I'm also short and fat. Recently, I've been buying all my pants at Old Navy. They actually have a wide variety of fits and fabrics, and I never have trouble finding P's there.

I just found out today that I will probably be scheduled for surgery in July so I dont want to put too much money out for clothes. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

i ended up using justmysize.com. I’m all set!

Wrap dresses and wrap skirts are your friends!

(As are belts, lol).

Though, if you want to save some $$, maybe don't buy too many clothes during weight loss phase. At first I was all, yay, I can buy some smaller clothes! Then it became apparent that I would drop a size every 3-4 weeks and I couldn't wear my just purchased clothing. So that was a bummer.

I have not worn a dress in 29 years. I can't even imagine it at this point. Where do you suggest buying a wrap dress? I've never worn one.
