I don't really have friends who can help me. I have a closet full of clothes that don't fit, don't match, or are just downright dorky. I try, I really do, but stuff never looks as good on me at home as it does in the store. I RARELY buy new clothes, but I had a baby last year and even though I'm almost back to my original weight, it's all distributed differently. When I need to dress up for church, I want to cry, but I'm so afraid of going clothes shopping with the same results. WHAT CAN I DO?

where do you buy your clothing? if its in a certain store, don't they usually have manikins or displays set up? there's no shame in buying an outfit that is already put together, like in the window or on the display. take those as your cues, and if you don't like the color, buy the shirt or whatever in a different color. also, about the distribution of weight-issue: don't forget that foundation-garments are very important. have you been fit for a bra since your baby/weight loss? you may be wearing the wrong size bra now, and that will make a difference in how well a top/shirt/blouse looks/fits, too. if your tummy is still to flabby, you can wear a 'smoothing tank' underneath your shirts..it will hide the flab by holding it in and smoothing it, so that it doesn't go everywhere. (for lack of a better way to say it)
