Shirt Size Changing Due To Weight Loss

Postby ShanShan » Tue Sep 28, 2010 10:12 pm

Hey guys,

I am looking to lose 15-20 kg and I am wondering if anyone else has experience losing this amount of weight?
My question is: With a loss of 20kg (from 70kg to 50kg) do you think my shirt size would change much?
Right now I am wearing size 12 or M shirts. I understand that I would probably be able to fit into smaller shirts but do you think my size 12/M shirts will still look ok and not too baggy?

I think they would look baggy on you at 50kg. Personally I'd be so happy with the weight loss I wouldn't be worried about the shirts... unless you have $200 shirts or something :lol: Also damp cotton shirts can be shrunk in the dryer on the hot setting !
