We have all seen the lady wearing ultra tight clothes that make her look scandalous, but I believe there’s something mentally going on with women who are wearing clothes that do not fit their bodies. There is the possibility of being in denial. You’re trying to lose weight and you are in between sizes and you have been working so hard to lose the weight. However, wearing a size too small actually makes you look bigger, so now everyone notices your weight because you’re clothes are ill fitting. Studies have shown that some women are dishonest about their weight and size, but it really doesn’t matter what number you tell someone if your stomach or butt is busting out of your pants.
There are so many TV shows, books, and other resources that women have within their reach for them to dress properly, yet I am seeing women on their way to work in New York wearing outfits that are at least two sizes too small for their bodies. Wearing clothes that “fit” your body is more important than the actual quality and cost of the product. Here are some ways to know if you are wearing clothes that are too tight.
1. Ripples in the back thigh area and crotch area. When trying on pants, if the fabric starts to pull in these areas, it is not your size. Forget about numbers and go with how it fits on you.
2. Muffin Top. Your hips are sticking out because the pants you’re wearing has pushed them up because they are too small.
3. Baby Shirt. You’re shirt keeps coming up and you have to keep pulling it down. If it’s a button up, the fabric is puckering out in the bust and stomach area.
4. Denim Diapers. You want to wear the trendy cutoff shorts, which is fine but if you try to sit down and your butt is showing, it is too small!
Whether you are in high school, college or you’re a mother of three kids there’s no excuse for wearing ultra tight clothing. I’m a wardrobe stylist and it is my mission is to help educate all women so that they can look and feel their best! Projecting a great image is powerful and those who “look the part” gain more respect from their clients and peers. Of course having a great image is more than just looking fabulous, but it’s very important because the world we live in depends highly upon great visuals. We act and live off of what we see so if it doesn’t fit, love your body and don’t wear it.
