Maintaining perfect fit becomes a challenge if your weight fluctuates. A variance of 5 to 10 pounds can be a size difference, especially if you tend to gain or lose weight on the lower part of your body. So what is a girl to do? Here are two options to consider:

  • Purchase items that are forgiving on the areas of your body that grow larger and smaller. For example, A-line dresses and skirts are ideal for pear shaped body types that gain weight.
  • Double up in different sizes on the items that you wear frequently. For example, consider stocking up on ”sleek jeans” and “roomy jeans”.

It’s an expensive exercise to keep a stock of various sizes in your wardrobe, but unfortunately I see no way around it. How else would you maintain perfect fit when the size of your body is perpetually changing?
