    Certain things, yes.Tailoring does help, and a few items should be tailored so that they fit you better.Also, how are you able to drink and stay so skinny? I'm intrigued.

    Not tighter.  More tailored.  Just picking tight clothes won't make you feel better.  I would recommend going into some higher end stores with salespeople that are interested in helping you.  See what size THEY recommend for you.  Then you can have an idea of what size you really are.Then you can start picking up basics on your own once you get more of an eye for sizing yourself up.

    seriously, have you NEVER seen What Not to Wear?  Just add some structure. You can't very easily put darts into a soft knit shirt like the white one you posted yesterday. You need better fabrics.  Yes, some things can be fixed by a tailor, but you might need to start rotating in better stuff in general. You aren't in grad school anymore, either, Dr. MinM.

    ls - I'm pretty sure I burn 1,000 calories an hour just by being anxious. I tend to lose weight when my anxiety goes up. I tone while jumping to all the wrong conclusions ;)

    Haha! I'm anxious too, that's why I'm curious!And jealous. When I drank, I was 30lbs heavier. Now I drink a glass of wine from time to time, but I watch it.

    I gained almost 20 lbs when I moved here. I am eight lbs away from being back to where I was. I would love to be 120 again, but I don't think that will ever happen again in my life :( Boo 30!

    I would appreciate x infinity if I had someone to shop with. I have H and he is helpless (please to be referring to the sweater he tried to buy). I also try on shirts in the middle of the store over my other shirts to avoid the dressing room. He gets embarassed by this and leaves me. He has started walking away from me a lot these days....

    If a shirt fits over another shirt (not a layering tank, but an actual top in and of itself) it is too big.

    Min, if you have an issue with the rooms, do you shopping on the Internet.  Most stores have a measuring chart, measure you inches and actually pick the size they recommend on that chart and then maybe one before/after.  Try on at home, return others.

    Why avoid the dressing room?  I know it's a pain if you need to get it unlocked, but it's the only way to know if anything fits properly.

    I hate the dressing room, too, but if I'm in an actual B&M store, I MUST use it for anything other than a t-shirt. And tailoring is your best friend. It's certainly been mine - especially for dresses and button-down-shirts. Internet shopping with free return shipping is also wonderful, because you can try on with all your own stuff. Think the dress would look great with certain shoes? They're right there, in your closet! And please, please, please remember the secret to peaceful shopping: It's not your body's fault when something doesn't fit. It's the clothes.
