If you just don’t feel good in any of the clothes that you have then this can really impact your confidence. The last thing you need is to feel bad about yourself, but luckily, it is possible for you to make a positive change. If you are ready to take that next step then take a look below.
Buy Clothes that Fit
The first thing you need to do is buy clothes that fit you well. Check your closet and try to see what style or silhouette you tend to wear the most. Think about it, are a lot of your dresses flowing? Do you wear flared bottoms quite a lot? What about waist-cinching tops? If you can give some thought to what you wear most often then this will help you to make the right changes with ease. You will also be able to shop smarter as well so keep that in mind.
Find your Measurements
Knowing your inseam is so important if you are buying trousers online. The main reason for this is because it gives you the chance to find out how long your leg is from the crotch, all the way to the end of your leg opening. You can find out this information with ease, by asking someone to take measurements of the inside leg, to the ankle bone. Make sure that you are standing straight and that your feet are hip-width apart. If you can do this then you will be able to buy clothes that fit you perfectly, every time. If you want some help making the clothes you have now fit, then why not adjust them yourself? This guide on how to choose the right sewing machine is a great resource.
Know your Bust Size
Measure underneath your pits and around the fullest part of the bust. It is so important that you keep the tape measure very straight here and that you do not tighten it too much. You will know when you are holding it too tight, as your bust will pop over the tape. If you take a tight measurement then this will translate to a tight garment, which will help you to feel more flattered by the clothes you wear.
Know your Hip Size
Your hips are halfway between your belly button and your crotch. If you want to take this measurement then you need to take the measurement at the fullest part of the hips and at the rear. Ensure that your feet are together and that the measuring tape is fairly loose. If you can do this then you will soon find that you can make the best decisions regarding your fashion choices.
Find your Waistline
Everyone’s waistline is different, so you need to know where to start with your own. Bend to one side and then find the natural crease in your waist. If you can measure from this crease then you will always be able to get the right measurement. Just make sure that you do not tighten the tape too much. If you do then you may end up with garments that are too small.
