Ht. 5'11", Start: 230 lb, Today: 250 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 225 lb - I am 13-years-old, nearly 6 feet tall and plus-sized. I hate shopping because there are not a lot of options. Either the length is too short, the width is too tight, or the color options are poor. As a result, I hate shopping.
My mom and I want to launch a small clothing line dedicated to plus size teen girls that face the same challenges as I do. We are compiling a list of body measurements to create sizing that actually works.
Would you mind sending me your body measurements? Telling me what challenges you face in buying clothes? Which garments you have the least success with when you go shopping and anything else that would be helpful. I would really appreciate your feedback and I am looking forward to hearing from you. DM firstname.lastname@example.org

Ht. 5'3", Start: 250 lb, Today: 289 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 289 lb - I’m not looking to loose or gain weight but I do have a clothing problem. My family is on the wealthier side so all of my cloths are custom fitted so my I’m stylish and comfortable. But recently my friends have been going out shopping and I never get to buy anything. Last Saturday I actually bought stuff in maternity because my stomach fit much much better that way, but the only problem was the check out counter where the woman looked at me so harshly I thought I was gonna die. My friends who are nothing but supportive where also a little bit embarrassed and hung out to the side because shopping maternity is awkward. Can I avoid this situation??? How??? And also I am going to a bible camp tomorrow and they gave us all shirts yesterday and mine does not fit at all and I am expected to wear it all week. Help????

Ht. 5'4", Start: 312 lb, Today: 309 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - I am obese, morbidly obese really. I honestly don't know what to do. I'm pretty discouraged, I've only lost 3lbs in a year. I can never find clothes that fit. Most people on this board are under 200 lbs, so I'm obviousley more than that. I am so fat and I am sick of it.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 180 lb, Today: 180 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - I'm 5'2 and 180 pounds and I know I'm fat. But I can't really find anything in my size so I'm trying to lose weight. I don't know how long that will take. My clothes right now are kind of tight around my belly and thighs. So should I buy bigger clothes or should I just keep the clothes that are too tight and just lose the weight quicker

Ht. 5'2", Start: 160 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - I am 13 and pretty overweight. I have a wide and stock build, but it's mostly fat. My belly sags over my belt line and its uncomfortable. I can't fit in good clothes because they don't make them in my size. Right now, I am getting healthier according to my pediatrician but it is a genetic issue, and I was adopted. My biggest problem is my clothing and how it looks. There are a few kids at my school who make fun of my weight because I don't fit in any kids clothes. Right now I eat 3,500 cal a day and get some excercise. Please help me with my clothes and my eating habits
