Did Losing All The Weight Change The Way You Wear Your Clothes?

Recommended Posts

Peg got me thinking about this - with her comment in another thread.

 

Back when I was fat, I wore my clothes loose and baggy. In fact, I liked that it was somewhat fashionable to wear loose and baggy clothing. It was a great way for me to hide my fat and make myself not seem as fat (because my clothes were not tight). And, the fatter that I got, the bigger I just kept buying my clothes.

 

But, once I lost the weight, I went the other way with my clothes. Now, I wear my shirts and pants so that they are "snug" (for lack of a better word). Instead of swimming in an over-sized XL T-Shirt, I wear a men's medium T-shirt and it just fits me perfectly.

 

I do it partly because I don't have any fat to hide anymore. And, partly because it serves as a "line" for me - reminding me that this is the weight that I want to maintain, and, if I don't, then my clothes won't fit any more.

 

How about you? Did you change the way you wore your clothes before and after making lifetime?

Oh definitely I changed the way I wore my clothing. I wore a lot of loose dresses, and when I'd wear pants the shirts always hung over the pants. I think I wore a lot of things with elastic waistbands as well.

 

After I lost the weight for a long time I stayed away from anything that was too loose, that I felt made me look fat or pregnant. :bcb_grin

Being able to wear a t-shirt and having it tucked into my pants was a thrill when I lost the weight. I almost forgot about how good that felt, since I have been able to do it now for so long. But, before WW, every shirt was worn outside of my jeans or shorts.

Yes, losing weight changed the way I dress. I used to wear loose fitted clothing. Well I guess it was tight jeans, loose, baggy sweatshirts, flannel shirts, big t shirts. Now, fitted jeans and shirts. In the summer, I enjoy wearing skirts. I even wear a belt from time to time.

 

Here's a picture of me really stepping out of my comfort zone.

I would have NEVER worn anything like this 60 pounds ago. Tights, boots, so not me...or is it.:bcb_smile

I think I like my clothes loose because of sensory issues. I choke if clothes tug on me. For a long time I still wore stuff too big but I started to branch out a bit and now like tops to hug me since there is much less to hug and no rolls.

Losing weight has definitely changed the way I dress. Now I have COLOR in my wardrobe and I can wear cute t-shirts without having to have a cardigan over the top to hide my back fat. I am wearing shorts. I don't know that my daughter, who is 11, had ever seen me in a pair of shorts until last summer. I can put on a swimming suit and walk to the pool without having to be wrapped up in a towel, sprinting to the water hoping no one looks! I now have 2 dresses in my closet - I never, ever wore dresses when I was heavier. Thinner clothes are much, much better than fat clothes!

 

Trudie - you are looking good!
