I'm finding that all too often, when trying things on in a fitting room, I don't look carefully enough at the fit. I get caught up in some other aspect and don't look at the fit really critically until I get home.

#1 the dress I got recently at Antropologie. Upon further inspection at home, the armholes are way too big and cut in too deeply. I thought a racerback bra would take care of it, but it didn't. Call me old school, but I don't like to have my bra showing and I don't really want to put my underarm area (and a bit of side-boob) so obviously on display. I already tried the next larger size and it didn't make much of a difference. Why did I not see this?

#2 and 3 (in the navy/pink version) ...these two blouses fit ok in the shoulder, and need to be hemmed, but the sleeve lengths are way too long. I didn't notice the sleeve length and it's pretty obvious. With all these fit issues it goes beyond alteration into "complete makeover" and I don't love either one enough to put in the time or pay someone else to do it. These fit issues didn't register with me until I found #4 the lighter colored blouse below ...which fits much better and only needs to be hemmed. (I'm liking the lighter print better too.)

Do any of you do this? What do you think is going on and how to get beyond it? I'd love to hear what you think. My favorite theory is that I'm a "return-aholic", meaning I always want to take something home even if I have not looked at it that carefully, so I have an excuse for another shopping trip:-)

Thanks in advance....
