4 Sure Signs Your Clothes Don't Fit Properly

Since everyone has a unique body shape, what may fit you, may not fit someone else and vice versa. Sometimes it's a lot harder than you may think to notice when your clothes properly fit or not.

Here are a few signs that it might be time to visit a tailor to make sure you are dressed for success! ✨


Your jeans are gaping in the back but fit everywhere else

Shopping for jeans are never easy and what most people don't realize is they should generally aim for a "tighter" or more snug fit in the stores, as most jeans tend to stretch out over time.

You should also aim for jeans that are around 1/4" above the ground. Think your jeans are a tad too big or long? Schedule your fitting online now!

You can't see the shape of your body in a dress

Dresses of course always depend on the silhouette, but generally speaking a dress shouldn't fit too largely that you completely lose your shape, nor should it fit too tight and ride up when you walk.

The two-finger rule for pants

When trying to determine if you pants fit or not, a good rule of thumb is to follow the two-finger rule: your pants should comfortably fit two fingers in the waistband. Another sign of pants that may not fit is any puckering in the front or back.
