The Fit In!

 

It’s Fit Week on Short and Tailor! This is new for some of you and review for others, but I started this blog because I wanted to help people find their best fit! As life goes, it evolved into something even greater, and I support #wearwhatyouwant here at S&T.  However, after seeing a lot of people complain about how their clothes were fitting them, getting a lot of questions about problems with ordering online, or complaining about #shortgirlstruggles…I decided to head back to the roots of my blog and talk about the TAILOR in Short and Tailor. 

Fit week isn’t about trying to tell you what to wear or how to wear it - that’s ultimately up to you. But if you have questions or frustrations to do with sizing, tailoring, customization, or anything else…then you’re in for a treat this week. I have a few guest posts for you, how-to’s, and style guides for the short and tall girls out there. 

Let’s get started:

Know your measurements

Now, for some of us, constantly measuring yourself is triggering. Don’t use this method to manipulate yourself into a dark place. You’re better than that, and you deserve more than that. Taking your measurements will help you determine where you fall, size wise, from store to store. 

Identify your personal style

If you’re someone who likes to wear dresses, can only be found in jeans, loves rompers, or really wants to replace everything in their wardrobe with disco pants…then your sizing will change from outfit to outfit. Figuring out what you like to wearwill help you understand how to find your best fit. 

 

Always check the size chart

Every store, online or brick-and-mortar, should have a size-chart for each type of clothing they carry (pants, dresses, skirts, etc.). 

 

Stop shopping at places with highly irregular sizing

I get it. That one specific store has the cutest dresses, but if they repeatedly disappoint you when it comes to fit - it may be time to move on. 

 

Recognize that sizing is high variable. 

Don't let it get you down. It's by design. All you can do is figure out what works best for you.
