Should I buy clothes if I’m losing weight?
The rule of thumb, Fernstrom says, is that losing 8 to 10 pounds translates to going down one size. Still, if you lose “up to 15 pounds, you may be OK in your old size,” she says. But putting off buying new clothes until you really need them doesn’t work for everyone.
Does compression help with belly fat?
As mentioned above compression garments give an illusion of weight loss by shaping your body and nothing more. There is no evidence yet that proves compression can help one lose weight. In fact, any artificial support to the body tissues may slow your weight loss by damaging the support muscles in that area.
