Clothing Problems! What to do?



Recommended Posts

I stopped wearing pants and just wear dresses and tights. I find them great for weight fluctuations.

Check consignment stores too in addition to thrift shops. We actually have a couple in Seattle that only sell plus sizes.

I always forget about consignment stores. Great idea! That's a great place to get good quality and condition clothes cheaply.

I only sized down one time, but with working from home I was able to do that by wearing my clothes until they were excessively large. I bought most of my clothes second hand and donated my entire wardrobe. I also shopped at Ross/TJ Maxx for some extra new clothes.

My wife is still losing weight and I found a couple of work pants for her at Kohls for only $10 each. She is just at a size 16 down from a 26 and is losing almost daily still. Since they were only $10 I also went down a few more sizes and bought a size 12 for her for when she is at that point. These should hold up during this phase and then we will donate what doesn't fit.

There is a clothing site called gwinnie bee that does plus size clothing rental. You can have a few pieces out at one time depending on the cost of the plan.

I joined years ago when I was losing weight the last time. They have sizes 12+ I think. You can order things to wear at one size, wear them once or a few times then return them for something new or in a smaller size. They are totally great for business casual as long as you're willing to wear dresses and/or fancy shirts. It's essentially clothing rental. I didn't think I'd like it but the quality is quite good. They wash the pieces when you send them back in pre-paid bags. I might have changed since I did it years ago.
