Weight Fluctuation: What to Do With My Clothes?

» Posted by on Jun 23, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments




FB Inquiry:

What to do with clothes when a persons weight fluctuates even 5-10 pounds? For some even 2 pound can alter the look of a well fitting suit or dress…and then what? It’s like a person needs three closets almost for different sizes. I’ve struggled with this not wanting to alter or give away favorite outfits.


Uniquely Savvy Reply:
We all struggle with this from time-to-time, here are some thoughts…


Most important – Find the weight and size that feels healthy, keep those sizes in your closet, purge or alter the others with the exception of a few basics one size up and one size down (there are occasional fluctuations), and then work to maintain your body/health in a positive way.

Discern – Go through and with a critical eye, purge out the pieces that are no longer severing you. Even if you are that ‘size’, you may not be of that mindset and attitude!

Alter: If you’re not wearing your faves because they are ill fitting, at least alter them so you can “enjoy” them while you can!

….While I had just bought these MK glasses and they looked great a few months ago, I was at my heaviest, but now they no longer fit my face…..I’m going to consign them because my goal is to maintain close to my current weight. Keeping them in my sunglasses wardrobe just takes up space and gives off negative energy.

Have a fabulous day, hopefully this was helpful?!
