How to Get the Perfect Fit in Your Clothes

You can buy the best quality, the most expensive, elegant clothing but unless they fit your body perfectly, you will never feel comfortable in them. Fit is everything.

In Shopping for the Real You I talk about a website called Fashion Fit Formula. This was developed by a visionary woman named Janet Cunliffe who grew up sewing her own clothes. As a result of winning a major sewing competition in her teens she was invited to work in the cutting rooms of couture houses in Paris. She definitely knows a thing or two about what constitutes good fit.

Her formula is designed to work for each individual based on their unique bone structure, not just the number of “head lengths” tall they are. I like the fact that this is not a cookie cutter approach. Once you receive your formula, you can tell your tailor exactly where you want your clothes hemmed. And you can determine the right points for necklines, jewelry, belts, etc.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Janet for my YouTube channel this week. She explained how the formula came about and what it can do for your image. I am not an affiliate for her site. I just want to encourage everyone to check it out. It can make a huge difference in your wardrobe and will save you a lot of money because you can have clothes you already wear altered to be the most flattering for your body. That gives them longevity.

Here’s the link to the interview.

BTW – I am starting a new video series where I will be interviewing fashion and style bloggers and inspirational women who will discuss tips about beauty and fashion and also share the challenges and triumphs that made them who they are today. I think you will love it. My original video series, Vital Vivacious and Visible, is now available for nearly 60% off through the month of May.

Have a great spring!
