Gifts of Clothing from others?

Thursday, January 19, 2012

So, my MIL decided that she had to buy me a dress to go to a formal event she is hosting, since I was not going to go. She called me on the phone and asked me my size. I had to be honest and I told her.

I have never felt so embarassed! I never ask for clothes because I don't like to have to admit how big I have gotten. I did view it has a BIG motivator though but wanted to ask my fellow Sparkers: Do you let others buy clothing for you? If so, how do you feel about it?

    My niece just bought me a shirt for Christmas, and it is nice but I didn't tell her it was a size too small. I would never tell my MIL my size because she is extremely tiny and very weight oriented. She's always telling my husband he needs to lose weight and he's no where as overweight as I am.

    I used to hate when my family members would buy me clothing, that was before I lost all my weight but now... it's a totally different story. Nice of your MIL to purchase you a dress. emoticon Hope you enjoy the formal event.

    I feel the same as you. I never let anyone buy my clothes for me, and I wouldn't dare admit my size to anyone, I'm far too embarrassed.

    Before I lost weight my mom would send me gifts of clothing because she knew I refused to by myself any thing. Now that I've lost some weight I prefer to buy my own because I'm still trying to sort out what looks good on the new and ever changing shape.

    Yes, I do. It's kind of hard to avoid with family for holidays and all. I wouldn't worry about it. After you've lost some weight, you'll feel proud to tell them about your progress!

    I'm very particular about how certain pieces of clothing fits me- pajama pants I like to be 2 sizes too big. Jeans I like to fit to my body shape (thank you, Lane Bryant!). Sweaters and casual jackets I like one size too big. T-Shirts I like just right. Dresses I have to get tailored, so I always go a size bigger. So, I buy my own clothing. I don't let other people buy my clothes unless I've tried them on first.

    I let other people buy me clothes because I usually get nicer clothing as gifts than I would be able to get myself

    I buy my own clothes as no one else knows my style real well.

    My daughters buy me sweaters for Christmas because
they know my size and color preferences, but I buy
everything else myself.
