Even if you’ve been wearing the same size for several years, your proportions may have changed. Start the year off right by taking your vital measurements so that you’ll be a better shopper.
This is especially important if you do a lot of shopping on-line and/or purchase clothing in non-U.S. sizing. You can compare your measurements to those provided by manufacturers to ensure you’re purchasing a size that will fit, or at the least, will fit in your largest measurement so that the other areas of the garment can be taken in to fit (which is a lot easier than up-sizing!) In my January newsletter I provided a link to easily convert your size to the correct non-U.S. size.
An especially important measurement is your bra size. It’s amazing what a difference wearing the correct bra size can make to your appearance. Get fitted by a professional every year and then replace your old bras with ones that fit.
