It doesn’t matter if something is fancy designer and cost you a lot of money, if it fits badly, it looks bad.
Remember when Gwyneth wore this gorgeous pink dress to the Oscars? I bet she felt uncomfortable and self conscious at a time she needed to feel beautiful and confident.
It’s not that it wasn’t a nice dress, it just didn’t fit. Supposedly she removed the piece that was designed to wear under the bodice (Breast pads or a structured bustier – I’ve read several stories), which meant the top didn’t sit properly. It didn’t matter that the dress was Ralph Lauren and worth a squillion dollars, it didn’t look great, because it didn’t fit.

The No.1 thing I see when I do Wardrobe Overhaul’s, is clothes that don’t fit properly.
Often they’ve been bought, despite being too big or too small – “near enough will have to do” – because they’re a designer piece and because the person buying it thought it was a great bargain.
What seems like a great find at the time, ends up being a big waste of money.
Most of are not educated on how clothes should fit our bodies. Growing up, if we could get it on and do it up, meant it fit. That’s fine if that’s enough for you, but if you want to look better than “that’ll do”, then spend some time really looking at the way your clothes drape over your body. Is anything pulling? Is anything puckering? Is anything making you look bigger than you are? Is anything adding bulk to your frame?
