Most of the time when I am talking about the fit of an outfit the image people get in their mind is someone who is fat. It is more than just extra kilos on a person, it is true for a petite and also for a large individual. The clothes what we wear influence the way we think, we feel about ourselves, the way we act and the way others responds to us. If you are wearing something that doesn’t fit you properly you are think about your appearance all the time, you feel physically and mentally uncomfortable and hence affects the way you act.
Wearing something that doesn’t fit bring in the negative focus, yours as well as that of others. If our clothes are too tight, then no matter what size we are we still will feel fat. The clothing which is of smaller size makes you look larger, if it feels tight it looks tight, making you look stuffed in. Instead slip into something which is of proper fit and there is enough room for movement, we can carry on things that are of more importance.
Clothing that is too large also shouts dissatisfaction with your body. A fabulous fit makes you a person who looks fit with a good taste, judgment and also who gives attention to details.
Most of the time when I am restyling a wardrobe it is sad when you see the client’s clothing size has gone up by one or two but they don’t want to invest on new clothing to fit their current size until they lose those extra kilos. It is a down ward cycle as it leaves them depressed and dissatisfied with life and themselves. It takes a lot of positive determination to live in the body that you are ‘today’. Don’t wait on your weight to look and feel fabulous.
