im 4'9" and currently weigh near 105#. when i was weighing 85-90#, i could only wear kids clothes since nothing fit me at least even with the teens clothes. now at my current weight, i could wear more women's clothing, but of course, i have the belly to deal with.

should i slim down to lose belly fat but going back to wearing kids clothes, or keep weight on to be able to wear women's clothing? or is there a way to keep the balance?

are you pretending as if there is a real benefit to you being overweight?

It's kind of difficult to say... you definitely would look a lot slimmer at 90 pounds, but it's no fun wearing kids clothes. Maybe you could just concentrate on eating healthier and toning up. It is possible to lose belly fat without losing a lot of weight. Eat a low-fat diet, go running and do strength training exercises.

Or shop at different stores cut smaller. Like Mango, Uniqlo and Zara. It depends in how you feel at your current weight. But just for clothing is pretty silly.

You are shirt, which is the big reason that women's clothing is quite difficult. (One of my friends is 4'10 and 90 pounds)

not according to bmi but she says she has a belly at 105. I would think that the concept of wearing adult or children clothes shouldn't make any difference in the matter. so including that, leads me to wonder why she is trying to find nonsense reasons to gain weight.

clothes probably dont matter to you, but for professional/job networking, it does to me. tailoring clothes is so expensive, and i'm not exactly handy with a sewing machine either.

at my current weight and waist size, i'm wearing women's clothes and just belt them or tuck them into pants/skirts. they're still a bit long on me, but it's more manageable that way than trying to squeeze into kids clothes that don't look appropriate for my age (im nearly 40). however, i'm worried about the health consequences with my belly. i already feel that little extra weight on my knees.

clothing matters a lot to my wife and she was wearing children sizes (before she had a child) and she managed. she also complains about how its hard to find shoes with her small feet and yet she manages to have a bunch of storage bins filled with shoes. so you can manage and I believe she was able to get things cheaper since they were kids.
