Have you ever questioned why at times when we try on an item of clothing in a store or boutique we can often find that doesn't always fit us the way we'd like it to?
Examples of this could be: a need to amend lengths or widths of arms, legs, waist or hip areas because certain sections of garments may be too small or too big given our natural body proportions. And let's face it, you don't need to be a high fashion guru to know that in reality many of us are not built to fit into what industry’s determined statistics are of ‘standard measurements'.
