Wear The Right Undergarments


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When you have lost some weight, pay attention that your undergarments still fit properly. I went for a run today, and found out my underpants are too big - very annoying!

Silly, but who else is going to talk about it?

    Youv'e lost so much weight that your clothes truly do not fit - isn't that a great problem to have! Congratulations and thanks for the warning!
CARLARCO 2/25/2012 12:06:00 PM

    I guess it's time to buy some new undies
EURALEE 2/26/2012 7:17:00 PM

    IT's a wonderful feeling to know the weight is falling off

    No one talks about it but so true! Congrats on all of your hard work, you know you've done well when your undergarments no longer fit!

    Congratulations! That's a good thing.

    I have always had problems finding bras that fit. As I've been losing weight, I have spent way too much time trying to find ones that 1) fit, 2) work for yoga and exercise and 3) are affordable. I cannot keep putting a lot of money into any type of clothing just to have to replace it again in a few months. I think I've gotten to a place now where I may be able to stop searching. Yes, in a way it's a good problem to have but it can also be an expensive hassle.

    I experienced this also. It's funny you don't even think about your undies when losing weight.
DELLMEL 6/22/2013 11:26:00 AM

    Love it! I have a brand-new pack of undies in the next size down all ready to wear. I threw out a bunch of old ones. NEVER AGAIN IN THAT SIZE! emoticon
GOHAWKIS1 2/27/2012 11:29:00 AM

    emoticon I've, too, had this problem while dieting over the years. I put my larger one aside and when the weight came back on, I just got out the larger sizes unders and put the smaller one aside. I've got a dresser drawer full of three to four different sizes. This time, though, I'm going to toss out the larger ones because I KNOW i won't be needing them again
ANNCHER 2/27/2012 9:42:00 AM

    After a while had to go out and get new ones myelf what a pain "really"
GRAYGRANNY 2/25/2012 9:39:00 AM

    Oh dear.....been there, done that!!
TUBLADY 2/25/2012 9:19:00 AM

    New smaller knickers was the first new item I bought, oh yeah new smaller bras too. Seems like with me the bust was the first to let go of some of the "fat". The one part of my body i didn't mind so much . But it in the end all evened out.
Since I work out a lot and power walk I have to have well fitting sports bra and knickers, don't want body parts jiggling all over the place, besides the bouncing around can hurt. emoticon emoticon
LILY_SPARK 2/25/2012 8:35:00 AM

    So true! Some people don't wear undergarments with running tights...erm. I have to and I'm not large. I guess some are more sensitve!
