Clothes That Don’t Fit

Last year I wrote a post about me and my husband wearing smaller clothes to help us lose weight and not bother buying new clothes in bigger sizes. Now, doing this actually worked for my husband. He lost more weight and both the t-shirts he got fit him perfectly. But it didn’t work for me. My weight is really not moving. I do have a thyroid problem that is borderline but not at treatable level. This is not helping me at all when trying to lose weight. I am planning on exercising more, but even that can be hard as I get out of breath quite quickly due to my low iron levels, caused by my thyroid.

So instead of saving all my smaller clothes, I sorted all my wardrobe out and gave all the things that didn’t fit me anymore to charity. But after I was done, the wardrobe was almost bare. I only have a few clothes that actually fit me now, so when I was asked to try a few items from Simply Be I jumped at the chance.

I ordered 2 pairs of jeggings in a size 14 in two different colours, as it’s the trouser department I am lacking in the most. A gorgeous Freya sports bra for going to the gym, as my current one is the wrong size. And I treated myself to some new knickers. Which, by the way, I only have a few pair now as I have also outgrown these.


My New Jeggings

Most of my weight is around my belly. It is quite rounded and I do sometimes look pregnant. Just to let you know, I am holding my belly in on these photos. My thighs are not fat and quite slim, which actually makes it hard buying jeans, and normally they fit around the thigh, but wont fasten around the waist, or they will fit perfectly around my waist but be massive and baggy on my bum and thighs.

These jeggings are perfect around my waist and look great on. I little bit baggy on my thighs and back of my knees, but not too bad at all. I love that these have pockets on the bum to give it a nicer shape and not make it look to big.

Freya Sports Bra

My Freya sports bra is now my favourite item of clothing I own. All my bras I currently wear are a 34DD, but they are really tight around the band and dig in and leave me with red marks. So I needed to go up a band size, but I have read that if you need to go up a band size but the cup still fits, then you should also go down a cup size. If that makes sense. So I went for a 36D and was praying that it fit me.

And when it arrived that was the first thing I tried on and well and behold it was a perfect fit!!

It is so comfy too! I could wear this in place of all my normal bras. Just having a great bra that actually fits gives me even more confidence to go to the gym and run on that bloody treadmill.

  2. Vital to buy clothes that fit!!not ones that you think might fit ! Makes a world of difference to the overall look

  3. It is so much more motivating to be in clothes that are comfortable. Have a little look at some of my fitness and planning posts from January 2018 they focus on setting SMART goals. These help you to stay focussed whatever life throws at you. I also need a new sports bra so thanks for the tip #dreamteam

  4. You look great, here! Glad the things you chose worked out for you. If you can’t expect to lose the weight quickly, it’s as well to get a few new items; they make such a difference to how you feel.

  5. Oh I’m terrible for keeping clothes that I want to fit in to! 🙁 All my weight is on my stomach too, so its really round – jeggings are a godsend! These look fab!

  6. I hate clothes that don’t fit even though they’re the exact same size as others you’ve bought, you look great in those, got to say I’m a sucker for jeggings.

  7. You’re right, those jeggings look fabulous on you! I have so many clothing items over the years from all of my different sizes that I struggle to throw out!

  8. It’s so hard finding clothes that fit, I can buy one size in one place only to need a different one somewhere else. It’s great you have found jeggings that feel comfortable and have a nice shape to them

  9. I always prefer buying and wearing comfortable clothes as they make me feel good. Although some clothes look good, not all are comfortable and those never enter my wardrobe.

  10. I still have a pair of jeggings in my cupboard that don’t fit – brand new with label on and I bought it 3 years ago. The problem is when I bought it I didn’t fit it on in the fitting room – it was just looking at the size and thinking that it will fit. Then I completely forgot to return it and now it is 3 years later. #TwinklyTuesday

  11. Wow Natasha, that’s so great that buying smaller clothes worked well for your husband. Like you, this would definitely not work for me. I’m pretty sure it would make me feel loads worse in fact. I’m really impressed by your jeggings. They look very comfy. I love simply be in general, and they do some really stylish lines. Thanks for joining us for the #DreamTeam xx
