Most people can probably look in the mirror and tell when something is “just off,” even if they don’t know why but it’s a little trickier ensuring that all of our clothing does fit properly.
This post is going to be teaching you how our clothing really should fit and to get there we will have to discover signs that indicate our clothes don’t fit.
- BUTTONS ARE POPPING OR PULLING ON YOUR BLOUSE: This is a common problem for women with a large bosom but it can also be problematic for women who have overgrown their blouses and refuse to retire it. Your buttons should not gape or pull.
- YOUR T-SHIRT HUGS YOUR REAR: The only reason your shirt should hug you rear is if you’re wearing a tunic with skinny jeans or leggings, I know you are thinking that it’s a good way to hide whatever but No, that’s actually a good way to draw attention to them. Generally, the body of the shirt should skim the body, giving you breathing room but not too large at the same time.
- YOUR JEANS ARE FROWNING OR SMILING AT YOU: If you look in the mirror and the front panel of your jeans is creased into a smile, then they are too tight. But if that same panel is sagging into a frown then they are decidedly too loose.
- YOU CAN’T PINCH AN INCH OF YOUR SKIRT AT THE HIPS: While some skirts are designed to hug your body, you should still have enough fabric so that it is not tight. You should be able to pinch an inch of fabric at the hips of your skirt, ensuring that you have room or the flexibility in the fabric required for moving and sitting.
- YOU CAN’T HUG IN YOUR SUIT JACKET: Many suit jackets are designed to be form-fitting, but a jacket shouldn’t be imprisoning. If the jacket is meant to be fitted, it should curve in and skim the waist, but not be tight across the back.
- YOU’RE OVERFLOWING YOUR BRA: This made it to the end because it is the most important on this list and should not be forgotten and overlooked. When you wear a bra that does fit, it can transform the look of your outer garments as well as your overall appearance. You should be able to raise and lower your arms and the carriage of the bra should stay anchored in place and support and lift “the girls” to where they “should be.”
