I'm afraid to buy jeans...


Recommended Posts

Okay, now don't get me wrong here. I'm kind of happy about the weight loss. Being a varsity swimmer and the wellbutrin have combined to make me seriously lose the extra pounds. In a year and a half I've gone down....4 sizes. And it keeps going.

But you know what sucks?

I can't buy pants. At all. Seriously. I buy a pair of pants, and three-four weeks later they're starting to bag.....a few weeks after that and they're nearly falling down.

Agh.

I can't go shopping with my friends - because I don't know how long the clothes I buy will last. Since I can't buy many pairs of pants, I have to survive on just two or three (if I'm feeling rich)! It gets a little nasty after a while......

Sigh. I wish they made automatically shrinking pants.

I have automatically shrinking pants, but I'm not losing weight. ;)   Seriously, congratulations on losing weight! 

Do you have a thrift store near you?  We have a Salvation Army near us that has TONS of jeans.  New styles, good name brands (I've gotten Eddie Bauer, gap, lei, etc.)

Unfortunately, no. There are thrift stores in the area, but they either take a while to get to (and are in sketchy neighborhoods) or are waaaay more expensive than they should be.

Honestly, $15 for a thrift store shirt? What the hell is that?

I don't know where you live but in LA we have a lot of small clothing stores that sell inexpensive clothing. Which is known as *disposable* clothing which mean's it cheap and trendy and won't last long. But if you want something inexpensive try this web site.

Edit: If it's not you're thing just disregard it.

try shopping in children's sizes if you can.  (you didn't state your size or measurements, sorry)

I know it "sounds" weird but (depending on the brand) I wear between a 12-16 in girls.

And I can't wear grown up women's undies at all.  Even the smallest size doesn't fit.

even juniors sizes fit kind of wierd.

But a size 10 in girls fits me just right.

The thing that REALLY sucks, is that you have to try everything on.

Until you know how that brand is fitted, you HAVE to try it on.

But I've found that girls sizes fit me better than juniors sizes and misses sizes.

And childrens clothing is usually cheaper than either juniors or misses.

hope that helps.
