Around the start of the New Year, many people make resolutions. They make resolutions to spend less money, to eat healthier, to work out more. If the person making the resolution really focuses on specific goals, they can find success rather quickly. However, what success looks like in these departments may not be what the resolver was expecting.
For example, imagine a person’s 2020 goal is to lose weight by eating healthier and jogging a few times a week. After a few months of this, something might happen: They may find their clothes do not fit the way they did before. Well, that is good news if that is what they were going for! The bad news is that they’re now swimming in their trousers.
If this is your case, read on. You realize you have a few choices.
Wearing the bulky clothing is the easy way out. It is the do-nothing solution to a relatively insignificant problem. If this works for you, then great. This approach is not recommended for people who pay close attention to their style or who need to look even somewhat professional at work. If you have to wear a suit, wearing pants that are simply too large for you will give you an unkempt and unprofessional look. But for the coach who wears athletic pants to work, alterations may be a question of style choice rather than of professional appearance.
Replacing the bulky clothing is so tempting for the fashionistas of the world. Losing a little weight can be very exciting, and it is natural to want to treat yourself if you find yourself in this situation. However, what if you lose more? It may be very expensive to build a new wardrobe every couple of months. Then again, you might fall off the wagon. It happens to the best of us. Then you have two sets of pants. One for your pre-resolution size and one for your changed state. That is wasteful and discouraging for many people.
The third option is a wise one, yet many people forget about it. Take the clothes that do not fit to a dry cleaner for same day alterations. The dry cleaner is a fantastic place not only for cleaning clothes but for a variety of services that can enhance your style: hem pants, hem jacket, taper waist alterations, taper jacket alterations, and even embroidery services. The reason this is a great idea is because you do not waste money paying for a second pair of pants. The pants change shape with you as you make progress. This way, your weight loss experience is less dramatically observed by people around you, which is great for a modest person. It also means you save money on not buying a whole new pair of pants. And if you fall off the wagon, which we hope you don’t, you can return to the tailor at the dry cleaner to have the pants restored to their original fit.
