Tailoring is a dirty word to women, especially tall women. Why? Well, women in general think their clothing should fit them perfectly off the rack and that’s just not the case (not to be the bearer of bad news). I’ve found that this is actually good news! No two bodies are alike so it’s almost impossible for a garment to fit you perfectly off the rack. As a tall woman the phrase “Shopping off the rack” is hilarious but that’s a post for another day. I have been tailoring my garments for years and not just because I’ve had to due to my height. One of the many awesome things my Mom taught me was having a good tailor is key to looking great. When ever I tell people this they always say, a TAILOR is expensive! I beg to differ because when a women loves the way she looks in a garment she will wear it forever and best of all, more compliments.
Men are accustomed to having their garments tailored. But for some strange reason women aren’t. So ladies on this one, let’s take a cue from the men. Find a good tailor and you will have a new BFF!
