Fitting Room Formality – If the Dress Fits Buy It!

Due to vanity sizing in today’s clothing market finding the right size requires more than just checking the tag. Knowing a few guidlines to follow when entering the dressing room will leave you with confidence in your purchase.


Grab more than one size.

Since each store and brand have their own set of standards for sizing it’s a good idea to grab more than one size when trying on a garment. Take the size you have the most of in your closet and then grab one size smaller and one size up. For example if you’re a size 6 then bring a size 4 and 8 along with you. By trying on the other two sizes you’ll be able to judge which of the three fits best or if you need to go with an entirely different size, and it saves time from running back and forth or waiting on the attendant.

Sit down.

A dress is largely affected when you sit down. Make sure the fit doesn’t change much when you sit down and check that it is not too snug or indecent. The top should stay put and the neckline should lay flat, everything should stay in place.

Check the coverage.

When you move around the dress should remain comfortable and not hike up in the bottom. You should also be comfortable with the length.

These four guidelines will help you to master the fit of your next skirt purchase. Be honest with yourself while in the dressing room. Even though you may have squeezed into a size smaller make sure it’s a garment you’ll wear more than once and feel confident in.
