If there’s one thing most plus size women can agree on, it’s that finding clothes that FIT is extremely difficult. We often settle for items that are too loose in some areas and too tight in other areas just because we need SOMETHING that works for us.
I feel for plus size brands because if you look at a group of 10 women who all wear a size 28, we almost all look completely different. It’s not easy to make clothes that work for many different body types, so we’re often left with ill-fitting items or things that just look like tents so they’ll fit us all.
I recently discovered a way to get the perfect fit WITHOUT keeping a tailor on speed-dial: custom clothing!
I think of two different things when I hear the term “custom clothing.”
- The “olden” days when grandmas or moms would sew clothing for their families.
- Fancy celebrities who can afford couture.
Nothing in between. It really never occurred to me that everyday women with little to no sewing skills (like me!) could have custom clothing made at a reasonable price, but we definitely can!
