My size is the most common wearable size by women in jackets or a blazer. Who cares about this? if I can’t get the perfect fit. When it is time to get a new outfit for my job, I get so frustrated and disappointed about it. I feel I’m loosing my time over this. It shouldn’t be like that. Shopping is an enjoyable experience that we all should have. Jackets are very difficult to fit right. Sizes and cut will vary depend on your body shape.
How to get the perfect fit? when you shop for a jacket/blazer, There are a few tips to keep in mind. First, you have to know your size and body shape. Go to the store and try a few fitted jackets. Fitted jackets work perfectly as a “shaper.” It will accentuate better the body curves. Much like the cropped jacket. The jacket can’t be tight around the chest or pulling from the side. The sleeves shoulders have to be on your armhole. Make sure to get something with small shoulder pad. It will give more definition to your upper body and your posture will be straight. If the jacket length is below or on the hip, it needs to be a least half inch bigger around the hip. If the jacket is too tight in this zone, it will create tension to the zipper/buttons and a puff air shape on your upper back. It is not right!. The jacket has to be loose and fall nice over your body.
