Clothes that fit! (Made to measure)

Recommended Posts

Hellooooooooo, so...over the past year(ish) or less I've lost maybe 35 lbs. My body shape has changed a lot, too. With that, I've found a site that does made to measure shirts at a decent price. They have a promo where if it's your first time as a customer you get a made to measure button down dress shirt for $20 (unless you want monogram, special buttons, or a different color collar/cuffs). The price after shipping ends up being $30, which if this ends up being good will be a bargain.

My current situation is trying to figure out what cut ends up being best for me. They have a "slim" which is they take my measurements and add 12cm to the hips, waist, and chest. The normal adds 16 cm to the hips, waist, and chest with 4cm added to the shoulders, and loose is 20cm added to hips, waist, and chest, with 8 cm added to the shoulders. Would a slim hinder my mobility or just look fine?

Also, what's great about this site is they allow you to customize the collar. I'm short and with that I have a short neck. They actually have a collar that's short (the back is 3 cm tall and the length of the points is 5.5cm).

Anybody know about clothing cuts and can figure out which ends up being the best option for me? I'm also not a slender person so I worry a slim might end up being too tight.

      See I am not ready for this. But I did it anyways. And now here it is. And what now?! I went outside of my ok circle. 🤢🤮

      Ok so I don’t know if this is good or bad but I just came clean with one of my friends. He was not prepared. Neither was I. But there it was. Vomit. All over the place. I couldn’t help it. He is a very close friend and one that I hoped would last thru this journey. But his wife and my wife are friends. Good friends. And now I may have crossed lines. Not intentionally. Ugh. Didn’t think that till just now. What did I do. Ugh. Well I was happy like 10 minutes ago. This stinks. It’s so hard to think of my wife right now. Should’ve like an hour ago. I suck.  You know I thought about erasing this like every second I bet till I post it. But gees this was stupid. I may be beyond excited about this but my love isn’t. And I just threw her under the bus. Omg. I suck. Well at least I know I suck. This took 2 hours to write too. 😔

      So this was about 9 years ago now. I used the tri top binder from underworks (no idea if that is still one they sell) and I used another pullover one from another site I can't recall the name of a couple years later. I liked both. I'm non binary (though I was FTM back then though). It felt correct to be flat. I actually may even buy a new binder soon.    Have you read up on safety precautions with binders?    ~Rikki

      You have to do what's best for you ultimately. My suggestion would be to bring up the topic of trans people without having the focus be on you to test the waters. To see what her thoughts are on trans people. Depending on her response, then talk to her about your own personal feelings about trying to figure out what your own gender is. It can take a long time to figure everything out if you're not able to explore. So I hope things go well for you.    ~Rikki

      Better to be an influence, than "under the influence" to be sure.  Both are good choices because of their work in the public eye.

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Hendrix.  It's nice to meet you.  I like collecting rocks (and fossils) when I can, too.  Please look around the forums, ask questions, comment in threads, and have fun!   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
