I know this subject has come up before and I thought I had saved the conversation. My memory is non-existent so I will ask again. What do you look for when you don’t want material to show your pant pockets, waistband, fat rolls, etc? Slinky comes to mind when I ask. I love some of her things but I swear, there are tops that show my every imperfection Which materials are clingers?
I wondered if I was alone in not wanting the outline of my jean’s pockets, waist bands, and belt loops showing through my tops, even if no fat rolls are showcased. One lady looked at me like I was crazy because she said it didn’t bother her at all. Of course she was a skinny minnie so maybe you small gals look at things differently. @mooncat3 I have been on this diet since May 2016. I reached a point where I quit losing and I admit I started getting off more than I should. I have to let my hair down once in a while but for the most part, I stay on it. It gets very hard because it is so limited but at the same time I have lots of low carb recipes to fall back on. Thanks everybody for answering my question AGAIN.
Pamlou, I know what you mean about tops showing lumps & bumps, zippers, etc.. I like tops that are blended with some Rayon. They tend to glide over my imperfections better!
I find that woven tops tend not to show the “fat rolls” nearly as much. I have SO MANY Slinky, Antthony, Kate and Mallory, OSO, and even some Iman and DG tops that are relagated to the never wear section because of that. But woven tends not to cling so much. I too have lost 50 pounds and I don’t find that going up a size matters as far as not clinging to the imperfections. The material clings even if there is too much of it. But the things I have that are woven or strategically placed chiffon or woven pieces get worn a whole lot more.
Sizing up will just be bigger yet show imperfections…clingy fabric is a “don’t”.
Pammy Marla makes styles that have a slight flare around the mid-section- I love her “Butterfly” tops that she makes in many versions or a well done peplum top.
If they are cut right the material does not matter so much.
You might try cutting out all grains for a month or 2- then if you wan to eat them do a reduced amount. This alone over time can take off some inches!
Pammy… When it comes to Slinky, if the Blouses are showing pant pockets, fat rolls, your every imperfection, you need to go up a Size. AND, Slinky’s Garment Measurement Sizing Chart is ridiculous. Example—>
I’m a 40-C Bust which, in Slinky-world, is usually a Size MEDIUM. However, I ALWAYS take an XL 44″ Bust! It’s totally messed-up, but, there it is.
The only thing that I have found in Slinky that is over-Sized, are her Jackets and Coats, so, always go down a Size or even Two to a Medium or Small.
Pammy how long have you been on that diet? I know a few people who basically just went gluten free and gradually w/in a year are back at high school weight… can you imagine!!!
