Being infatuated with size may incorrectly define your shape by your size. This is the worst thing to do. Not all sizes are created equal. There are no international size standards, so what may be a size 8 in the U.S. may be a size 10 in China. Oh by the way, did you know that an American size 2 in 2011 was considered a size 10/12 in 1980? As Americans got bigger, the clothing sizes got smaller to compensate for their obsession with size. (For more information on the history of clothing sizes, click here ). It is best to concentrate on FIT and not size.

With that being said, not all body types are the same. And neither should your clothes. Based on your body shape, we can show you the various types of lines and clothing styles that will flatter and fit your body and give you confidence no matter what your size.
