Just some thoughts. It is hard. I pushed wearing clothes too long -the were really baggy. Tops are, in my opinion, easier to wear when they get too big.

Thanks for the tips -it will help me focus my searches at the thrift/consignment stores! I had budgeted for the cost of IP, but neglected to budget for the cost of clothing
