My MIL bought me some clothes and tells me she bought my husbands brothers girlfriend "smaller sizes". We look to be the same size. She is constantly telling me I look like I need an XL and she buys the other girl a M. I honestly wear an 8 in pants and a L in shirts. I am so tired of her insulting me. Once I lost a bunch of weight when my husband was working 12 hour shifts and she would yell in front of every one "Who is your diet doctor?" I feel so insulted and I tell my husband, who tells me I need to tell his mom in the moment when she is insulting me. He says he doesn't want to say anything after the fact.

I would return the favor of the complisults. I would respond with 'Well bless your heart' with things that make her look like an ass. I would tell her that her new hairstyle is 'more age appropriate' than the last. I would tell her thank you for the gift of clothing, but that you prefer something a little more stylish and hand the gift back to her. You really don't have anything to lose but crappy gifts and extra contact with a bitchy MIL. Win - win.
