Hi I'm in the process of trying to lose weight but am desperate for new clothes, I also think it'll make me feel better about myself if i look a bit more stylish while losing weight!I'm not sure what to buy though as I dont have the funds to buy loads of new things everytime clothes get too big!!

Leggings,tights and tunic tops/dresses can be worn through a few sizes.Just watch out for too big shoulders/necklines.

Primark. Jeans for £9, tops for £3. Great for an interim wardrobe until you reach your goal weight.

Hi there - I'm in the same position and have just got a few tops from La Redoute - I got a discount + free delivery code from here and got 3 vest tops and a couple of smart-ish tops for work for around £20 - feel much smarter and better in smaller clothes! I'd already got a pair of trousers from Primark ages ago that I can finally get in. Am hoping to be a size smaller by the New Year...! Sorry am on the phone so can't do a link but have a look at La Redoute and the discount codes you can get - and good luck!
