Do you ever wonder how some people look AMAZING in their clothing? They may be wearing the same jacket or pants as you are but they somehow look better in it? More than likely they use a tailor so that their clothing is tailored to fit their body perfectly.
None of us are a standard size. Some of us are size 8 and tall, or short, or with large hips or narrow shoulders. So how can so many people fit into one size? They can’t. That’s why some garments look better on certain people depending on their body shape. But there is a way to even the playing field and that’s through professional tailoring.
Not every garment you wear needs to be tailored but it’s recommended for suits and other professional clothing that’s supposed to be fitted. So what do you do? Always buy an item so that it fits the largest part of you; whether that’s hips, chest or shoulders. It’s much easier (and cheaper) to take in items than let them out, so don’t avoid purchasing garments that are snug. Ill-fitting garments make you look sloppy and bigger than you actually are, regardless of whether they’re too big or too small. The best part is, if you find a great deal on a sale rack, you can purchase the piece knowing there’s only a small additional investment to get it fitted to you!
