Tailored to Perfection

There’s something a bit nostalgic about tailors. They are kind of like chimney-sweeps —they seem to belong to a different era.

Tailors come from a time when life was different, when our values were unlike they are today. They come from an era when we placed more value on looking good—on presenting well.

A woman once said to me, “ Well, you never settle for off-the-rack. You’re always asking, how can I make this outfit look better?”

That’s what tailors do—they always make outfits look BETTER!

And you know what? Most people, when they go shopping, have no idea they don’t have to buy off-the-rack. They go from store to store and think that’s all they’ve got to choose from, or, worse still, they listen to media. They just take whatever over-priced fashion is served up to them. Their wardrobe investments are often a poor choice as a result.

Most people have no idea how much control they have, if they take the time to be in charge of their own wardrobe. If you, like so many others, do buy off the rack, then you should always have your clothes altered to fit your body.  Human bodies are incredibly diverse. The chances that your body perfectly matches the body your clothes were modelled on are incredibly slim.

Your clothes were designed for somebody else—at best. Most likely, they were just designed to be the least offensive as possible—to the most people possible.

They weren’t actually tailored to fit anyone in particular. They were tailored to an abstract concept of ‘market. It’s exactly the same story when you buy something off the rack that hasn’t been designed with you in mind—and it certainly hasn’t been designed to flatter YOU!

Here’s a newsflash! The only profit the stores care about is their own. It has nothing to do with your profiting from a good investment piece that will flatter you and last for a long time.

The point is—be proactive. Don’t just accept whatever is given to you!

Most people’s off-the-rack clothes don’t fit well, so they’re never satisfied. They’re always on the hunt for new clothes. As a result, they spend a lot more on a larger quantity of ill-fitting, mass-produced garments instead of investing in a smaller collection of quality tailored garments.

There is nothing more flattering on a woman’s body than an outfit which shows off her natural curves, whatever size she may be. The good news is, you don’t ever have to hide in a sack to fool everyone what is underneath. Simply celebrate your curves and personalize your clothes to really enhance your best assets.

Imagine what it would feel like to open your wardrobe and see a well organised and perfectly fitted array of clothing. You would be so excited because you would know your wardrobe is tailored to perfectly highlight your best assets and hide all your flaws.
