I went and had a few pairs of my work pants taken in a bit just to avoid constantly buying new clothes because I simply couldn't afford it. Well I'd say after a good 2 sizes in it becomes not worth it because clothes just simply don't fit the same way anymore.
That's how it was for me anyways. I also lose weight in weird places first so that could be why they didn't work out for me. I'd say get a few things taken in and see if you like the difference.
I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
