Finding clothing too tight when it actually isn't?

Post by lizzie1991 »

Hi, for years I have felt funny about wearing clothes that feel tight to me even though they actually fit and people have commented they fit me well. When I wear socks I feel like they are rtght round my ankles or outer toe when they are not. I also find bras too tight so I end up putting it on the lowest hook. I also find hair bobbles too tight whereas other people seem to wear them relatively tight without moaning. Does anyone else experience these? I also prefer looser clothing even if it looks bigger on me.

I probably tend towards looser garments but thankfully I'm a guy and don't have to contend with bras or heels.

I tend to look a bit dishevelled and am funny about textures/being too warm due to my eczema. Equally I like to haveclothes with good and plentiful pockets but at times I end up in a panic as I've stuffed my wallet/phone/money in a different pocket and can't immediately locate it.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.

Yes I end up anxious and shoving things in pockets then forgetting them. I like lots of pockets. I sometimes go round looking like a man with what I wear even if it is womans clothes.

This sounds a lot like symptoms of Sensory Integration Dysfunction, a common condition comorbid with Dyspraxia.

Probably everyone has faced this problem, and even clothes a few sizes more extensive seem too tight to me. I have had such principles for a long time. It ended when my husband changed my mind. He and I began to choose clothes for me together, and thus I stopped seeing myself full in clothes. By the way, many people have inspired themselves with this principle, which in itself is not valid, so you should find a person who will convince you that clothes make you fat. Because I now feel comfortable in any clothes, I began to wear caps from the store headwearhut.com. And now I wear hats to match any outfit I have.
