Fashion Fridays, Kuel Life Thought Leader: Tracy Gold

How do you feel when shop for clothes and all three sizes you try on, don’t fit?

Size Labels:

Size labels can have such power over how we feel about our bodies, but do they have to? I’m going to give you a fun and empowering alternative.

“Knowing what shapes work for you will save you a lot of time and heartache.”

The Truth About Size Labels:

I’ve worked in the fashion industry for over 20 years and this is what I know about size labels. They are inconsistent. It depends on who the brand is targeting. It depends on the fabric and it really depends on the style. In fact, two items can be cut from the exact same pattern and fit differently. Because even the dye of the fabric has an effect on how the fabric stretches or doesn’t.

Focus On The Right Shape Instead Of The Right Size:

When I take women shopping, I always look at the shape of the garment instead of the size. If a dress is a tight fitting body con dress, it stands to reason that my client will be at least two sizes up from her usual. If it’s a loose fitting dress, she may even need to go down a size. Moreover, if the shape of the dress is wrong for your body, it doesn’t matter what size you try, it won’t look right. It’s all about the shape. Knowing what shapes work for you will save you a lot of time and heartache.

If you don’t like the size label, cut it out! Choose the right style in the size that fits best and then cut the label out. Don’t give it the power.

Choose Styles That Can Be Styled Various Ways To Adapt To Your Shape:

This is the ultimate solution. My favorite pieces in my wardrobe are the dresses and jumpsuits that I can wear loose or belt them depending on what my body is doing on any given day. Let’s get real, at this age, we do go through body changes… often. If you are constantly fighting to fit into clothing that doesn’t adapt, you risk feeling bad about you body.
