Tips on Ensuring That Your Clothes Fit You Properly
Have you ever bought something online that looked fab on the model, tried it on and discovered that you in fact don’t look the same? This is something which is extremely common and whilst it can get you a little down in the dumps, the key is to buy clothing which fits you correctly. This may sound very simple but the truth is that not enough of us choose clothing which fits us well. If you want to look like your favorite celebrity or a fashion model then you can still do this regardless of your size. Our partners Chums of the UK have been focusing on how to get yourself a celebrity makeover, join in the conversation at #characteroffashion for more information. Part of the challenge of a celeb makeover is to make sure that the clothes which you use fit you well, and here are some tips on doing just that.
Mix Up The Sizes
The first thing which you need to remember is that you are not a single size and from shop to shop you will fit into different sized clothing. In one store you may very well be a small yet in another you’ll need to reach for the medium, this doesn’t mean that you have put on weight, it simply means that the stores have different sizing guidelines.
It will be pricey if you decide to have every piece of clothing which you wear tailored but you should certainly try and do this with at least some of your favorite pieces. When you get your dress, shirt or skirt tailored, the seamstress will ensure that it fits you to a tee which is exactly what you should be looking for in your clothing choices.
Buy For Now
There is often a temptation for anyone who wants to lose weight, to buy clothing for their future bodies rather than for now. What ends up happening in many cases is that people don’t buy new clothes, they may or may not lose weight and that leaves them with old clothes which probably don’t fit as they should. The solution to this is shopping for right now, when you lose weight you can buy different clothes but you are who you are and you need to ensure that you are buying items which make you look as good as possible.
It is key that you understand what kind of body shape you have, and how you can dress that shape so that it looks the best. For example you could have two girls who weigh the same, yet one has curvy hips and the other is far more flat. These two girl could wear the same sized clothing but it will look vastly different on each one, and one is likely to look better than the other. Shape isn’t just about weight or height, it is about how the clothes fall on the body, where they accentuate and how they compliment your overall shape. Once you know what body shape you have you will have a far easier time finding the right clothes that fit you.
Don’t just buy anything, make sure that you have clothes which fit you to a tee.
