If you’ve gained or lost a significant amount of weight, have a set of clothes that will flatter your body now, not the one you want. Wearing bulging clothes or too loose ones will be unflattering and only draw unwanted attention to your look. More than that, wearing clothes you’re uncomfortable with can affect your self-confidence and mood. So, go for ones that you feel beautiful in, and forget about the future. If your weight changes again, you have to update your closet or tailor your clothes if possible.
