Reasons Why You Should Wear Clothes That Fits You Perfectly And How You Can Achieve It

The importance of having well-fitting clothing to your overall appearance cannot be overstated. When we speak of clothing that is well-fitted, we are referring to articles that mould to the shape of your body, allow you room to breathe and move, and do not add extra bulk to your overall appearance. When they are executed properly, these minute details are unnoticeable; yet, when they are not, they are glaringly evident, giving the impression that the wearer is careless. Examples of good tailoring include hems that just barely brush your ankles, seams that don't tug, and sleeves that don't need to be rolled up to get the ideal length.

It is not as easy as it may seem to select well-fitting off-the-rack apparel, so finding a skilled tailor could be the difference between appearing sloppy or fashionable. Your body shape can be determined by a tailor, who will then alter your clothing so that it fits you perfectly. In addition, a tailor can offer you guidance on how to shop for items that will accentuate your body type.

Having your outfit made to order is an additional option. If you decide to go about things in this manner, you should have your measurements taken by a tailor. If your employer is providing you with a corporate wardrobe and having the clothing manufactured specifically for you, they may ask you to provide your own measurements. This is because the clothing will be tailored to fit you. The accuracy of your measurements can be improved by following the aforementioned pointers.

Have someone else take the measures using a flexible measuring tape rather than relying on your own fabric measuring tape, which has a propensity to stretch. While taking horizontal measurements, make sure to keep the ruler parallel to the ground.

Standing on a level surface, bring your knees up to your chest and place your hands at your sides. If the person doing the measuring can get themselves slightly elevated off the ground, it might make things easier for them.

Put on your regular pants and go to work in form-fitting garments like leggings and a shirt that is buttoned all the way up.

Stand up straight instead than striving to pull your tummy in towards your spine.

Take care to grip the sellotape measure firmly, but not excessively so; you should be able to easily fit two fingers inside the space. Keep the tape wrapped around your upper and lower body. It is preferable to have some range of motion in one's clothing rather than an excessive amount of restriction in that clothing.

It is important to keep in mind that the waist measurement that the tailor gives you does not refer to the place where you wear your pants; rather, it corresponds to the size of your hips. Under your rib cage, at the area that is most immediately adjacent to your belly button, is where your torso is at its thinnest point. Another potentially misleading measurement is the hip size; rather than wrapping the tape around the top of your hip bone, wrap it around the part of your hips that is the widest. This will give you a more accurate reading.

One last piece of guidance to keep in mind is to measure everything twice to guarantee precision.
