Yes, it helps me feel even better to see clothes that fit well and are not baggie. I make good use of thrift stores as well.

I have bought a few new tops. Other than that, I have made use of local thrift stores for jeans & I am fitting into some of my own clothes that had been too small!

Yes. Some are items that, because of how they are designed, I will still be able to wear 10-15 pounds from now, others will need the attention of a good seamstress. I bought a few things early on that I have since given away because they are too big and NOT worth altering. Lastly, I have dug out of hiding several old favorites that I am finally able to wear again after more than a decade!

No, but I have a closet full of smaller sizes that are fitting again so I haven't needed to just yet.

I try not to. I have some old clothes from my skinner days that I can wear. I will use Rent the Runway for special occasions rather than buying an expensive new dress that won't fit in 2 months. I do typically have to buy new pants as I go though as I really, really hate wearing baggy pants.

Definitely, for me it's very important to wear clothes that look good on me at any stage or body shape. I also love wrap-around cuts and stretchy fabric or intentionally loose/oversized clothing.

I also do most of my shopping for clothes at thrift/2nd-hand stores. I love spending only a few bucks on high-quality clothes and being eco-friendly at the same time. Win-win. Oh, and all the toxins have usually been washed out by the time the clothes are donated and you can see exactly how the material and the cut behave after being worn and washed several times.
