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.

      Mine were painful for about eighteen months. Three years on hrt I can still function and have no pain at all. The fact you are in pain for a few days after is a red flag for me. Also, I have never read that estrogen or progesterone drops T levels. I'm so sorry you're experiencing this but I think you need to do some serious research. Best of luck....

      I'm almost embarrassed to report that my favorite trucks have been Toyota Tacoma pickups - I've owned two, both white! Although I did own a 67' Chevy Carryall once that was a gas guzzler but lots of fun to drive.  I bought it from a school system and it was school-bus yellow I'm surrounded by farmers who all have the latest pickups. I envy them all!   Gwen

      Good luck Amanda.   I had a friend for many years. As I changed he became very touchy and, particuarly,  toward the middle of last year, very trans and homo phobic. I think it was his other friends. He had worried about how other people would react with him from the very beginning (in fact has always been concerned at anything which could taint him as unusual). To me it seems like insecurety, but the break came when his other friends started winding him up, saying that we were an item. He finally snapped and lost his temper ridiculing the clothes I wore.   At that point I decided I had had enough and could not put up with the abuse any longer. I walked and have heard nothing from him since.   Tracy

      The little cars I have had had would be almost invisible next to these   I did like the look of a Dodge some time back, but totally impractical for me. Even the garage is too small for anything other than a car.   Lovely photo Charlize x
