Sometimes weight gain is gradual, making it easy to find at least a few figure-flattering items in your closet. However, more rapid weight gain can make shopping for new clothing a challenge. It is easy to tell yourself that you will simply lose the weight, and keep squeezing into your ill-fitting clothing. However, shopping for figure flattering new clothing is one of the best things you can do to inspire healthy new habits.
When You Look Good You Feel Good
Whether speaking of casual clothing, professional attire, or everything in-between—when you wear comfortable clothing, in the right size, cut, fit, and color—you will feel more confident. If you keep wearing the clothing that you can still squeeze in to, but is no longer comfortable, you will do little more than reminder yourself that you are less than pleased with your appearance. Not to mention, you will spend all day tugging and pulling on your not-the-right-sized clothing.
You Will Look Thinner In Your Figure Flattering New Clothing
Clothing can work wonders in camouflaging your trouble areas. Your current clothing might have stretched to your new size, but it is likely uncomfortable, and accentuates your weight. Head to your favorite department store in search of some clothing that is cut and fit for your body type, and you will look like you have already started to lose some weight.
The most difficult part of shopping for your new size and shape, is getting past the “size”. However, put the size aside—and focus on looking and feeling your best at any weight—even if you remain your current size, or continue to gain weight.
