The Importance of Alterations

Clothes don’t make the person, the person makes the clothes..however, the way the clothes fit your body and what people will think when they see them on you will speak volumes before you ever even open your mouth. This means that in order to to ensure that your clothes are fitting you the way they should (in a comforting and flattering way) it is necessary to get certain items altered.

Here are some things to consider about potential alternations when buying/trying on clothing.

“There are a few important things to keep in mind for fit. The garment should never visibly pull across your body (bust, hips, thighs, stomach). It should feel comfortable, giving you a little bit of breathing space. Trousers should never be too tight in the crotch or behind. If you’re trying on a blazer, you should be able to move freely without the top of your arms or your shoulders feeling squeezed. On the flip side, trousers should never sag in your behind or over your thighs.”

The most important thing to remember is that we’re all made differently, but for the most part clothes are all made the same until they are altered.
