Weight changes and costumes

Not sure if this is the best place to put this thread, but I'm hoping it is.

Over the past couple years, I have lost a significant amount of weight due to sickness. The lowest my weight dropped was 80 lbs, and since then I've managed to regain about 10 lbs. But it's not a solid 10 pounds. I'll weigh myself every few days, and I sometimes find that I'm back down to 85-87 pounds. My goal is to be a steady 95-100 pounds, but I don't see it happening until I get way older and start putting on weight like every middle aged person out there.
Yeah, I'm the short skinny type.

The point of the thread: Should I take in my old costumes to match my new weight, wear them baggy, or just forget about them entirely until I'm back to where I was?

I would suppose that would depend on your budget, the tailor and where exactly you lost the most weight. In some places you can take the garments in without actually cutting the fabric so that it can be let out later, like the waist area. A tailor would be able to tell you exactly what could be done. If you don't want to spend the money though, I'd say just wear them baggy.

I'd be doing it myself, or asking my grandmother for ideas. I'm too cheap to hire a tailor when I made the garments in question anyway.

Seems if you're having a tough time gaining back weight, you could try some weight supplements, but if you don't want to, taking in the costumes would probably be the best option.
