Clothes

I am very interested to know the thoughts of people with disordered eating on clothes and how they decide on what to wear on a daily basis.
Allow me to elaborate.

I plan my outfits so precisely, and choose the clothes i wear to make me look as thin as possible. I know some people like to wear the biggest clothes to cover up their body, and i do that if i feel i somehow look thinner.
Sometimes at night i go through my wardrobe and try on a range of outfits to see if the clothes are baggier than the last time i did it, and to choose an appropriate outfit for the following day, which will hide any fat and show any bones. If clothes are too tight i simply cannot wear them and i feel instantly obese. I try and shop for clothes as little as possible. When i do i make sure i have heavily restricted leading upto it, and if this has been broken with a binge i will not go.

The reason i thought of this to lead to a discussion, is because the other day the weather was really hot and i wanted to wear a skirt, which actually makes my stomach appear flatter and kind of sits nicely on my hips, however i DETESTE my legs so i was in a great prediciment over what to do. In the end i decided on wearing the skirt but i regretted it once i left the house and felt more insecure than ever.

So, thoughts anyone? I'm really interested. For example, are there any items of clothing you would simply NEVER wear due to your insecurities [like a skirt, or a suntop, etc]? Do you plan your outfits accordingly?
