So you’re getting ready for your big event, you’ve got the date with a great smile, you’ve booked the great stretch limousine to get you there in style, made the hair appointment to make sure your up do is immaculate, now all you need now is the perfect dress. This can definitely be the toughest part of any big dance, party, or elegant event for many women out there. We’ve all been there before, going from mall to mall, shop to shop, boutique to boutique, only to find that the dress you fall in love with, over and over, doesn’t come in your size, or just doesn’t fit the right way once you try it on. Or an even worse scenario, the online shopping route gone wrong when the dress you ordered comes in and the entire line runs small, making what you thought was your perfect fit 2 sizes too small. No matter where you shop, whether it’s Sherri Hill Dresses or Target, the fit is everything and finding that perfect glove fit isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be impossible.
Try Everything On
Yes, we all know you’re a size 4, but not all size 4 dresses are made equally. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and in need of a new dress, when it comes to making that trip to the dressing room. Take the extra time and go try it on!
Dress for Your Body Type
Tube tops aren’t for everyone, and neither are a-line dresses. Certain body types will look and feel better with different types of clothing. So don’t be discouraged if you don’t feel like that halter top looks great on you, there are plenty of other alternatives that will have you looking great and feeling better.
Try it On Again
Trying on a dress once is a great start, however if you’re trying to find a dress for a big event and you’re shopping early, it’s a good idea to go into the fitting room multiple times over the course of a few months or weeks. This will ensure that your body hasn’t changed too much to where you would need to let the dress in, or out before your big event.
Be Comfortable, Be You
Most of all, when searching for your perfect fit, make sure you are comfortable. Comfort will always be key, if you don’t feel good you won’t look good. You want both, so find a dress that fits you and your life; don’t shape your life to fit any dress.
Finding the perfect design for a dress is difficult enough, but the perfect fit is an entirely different challenge, so take heed of these tips during your hunt for the perfect fit. Don’t get discouraged, the best fit will find you!
