What does the size of a garment mean?
It's simply a letter or number someone has deemed that "size" for a particular piece of clothing.
As I've begun selling a few clothing items I've realized each company has different sizing: some of the items may come in "true to size" (whatever that means) and some items made by that same exact company may run small or large. Some items come in larger in the bust, some come smaller in the shoulders, some come narrow in the hips, some come so stretchy this fit "almost" everyone...all of which they have deemed a size M. (Yikes)
Before I started selling clothing, I didn't realize how insecure ladies are about the size of clothing they may have to wear.
I feel like I'm constantly saying... "The size doesn't actually matter, its how the piece fits your body and how you feel in it. Plus, you can always cut that size tag out..."
Much like the clothing we are ALL shaped and sized differently and our hips, busts, waists, legs, thighs, calves, arms, ankles, feet, etc are ALL shaped and sized differently too. AND THAT'S OKAY!
I know that I am currently a size 2 to 10 and a size XS to XL... its depends on the brand, shape of the garment, fabric, and if it is going on my top half or bottom half...
There are A LOT of factors that go into what size I may end up with.
When the garment you choose fits YOUR body, that's when you look your best. No one is looking down the back o your top to check out the size...all they will notice is that it fits you correctly and you look amazing. When you choose an garment based on size and not fit, you end up looking like you borrowed your outfit from a toddler or your dad or your daughter or some girl on the street. You want YOUR clothing to FIT YOU not the "size" you wish you were (too small) or the "size" you think hides it all (too big). Wearing too large or small of clothing makes you look bigger.
If your wondering how to dress your body shape to show off your best "assets" just stop in and let me help. Sometimes its simply the placement of a belt, a or the length of a skit or shirt and voila you'll see yourself in a whole new light! Find your Fabulous and let it out! And please, please, please stop making all those terrible comments about your body, BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE INSIDE AND OUT!
