Size transition fashion

22 May

I’m in a really awkward phase of my weight loss where I am firmly between two sizes.  It means all of my current clothing is too big, and nothing in the smaller sizes at stores will fit yet.  So mostly I wear things that are too big for me and just make it work.  I do have a pair of stretch jeans that fit well right now (oddly, I think they’re a 12, which is the smaller size I don’t yet technically fit into) so I pair those with lots of unintentionally blousey shirts and hope for the best.  Oddly, the new glasses seem to be helping things because I think they’re simultaneously flattering and fashionable… which almost never happens with me.

So I’ve spent the morning exploring some options for fashion options that are cheap, easy, and friendly to this odd size transition phase I find myself in.  Here’s what I’ve found so far….

Old Navy embroidered gauze topThis super lightweight gauze shirt from Old Navy would be perfect for the summer.  It’s also intended to be loose fitting, so it should give you more transition time…

Old Navy wide leg button front pantsThese wide leg trousers are meant to be easy fit as well, so should fit sooner in smaller sizes without hugging the bumpy bits too much.

Old Navy 3/4 sleeve gauze topHere’s another gauze option with a loose fit and a super thin summer fabric.  I love the way these clothes just look like summer!  Here are some other options for easy fit pieces that should make it easier to dress for those awkward in between sizes.

    I am having all these troubles my self – it’s so nice but so frustrating! I find leggings are a true gem, with lovely fitted dresses over the top.

    Love your picks, though – practical and pretty x
