Never buy anything too small. EVER! I know a lot of girls who buy things a size too small in sales and say they will loose weight, A) this nearly never happens, it’s demoralising and it’s a waste of money, and B) you don’t even know the fit will be right if you do loose the weight. Just don’t do it. It’s so much better to buy too big and take it in. I often will do this to sale and vintage pieces. Although I never plan to alter drastically something that was full price, that too is a waste of money.
Pick an asset. Never have legs, chest and back out all at once. You have to choose which one you want to work with. Also bear in mind the rest of your look, hair and make up wise. It can be all too much if you have full beauty and then your chest out too.
Don’t show your underwear. Although a bra strap (al la Carrie Bradshaw) can be edgy and fun, seeing your entire underwear outline or half your bra cup when you bend over is not. Always lean forward in the mirror when wearing a top or even buying a new bra to check you’re only showing what you want to. Don’t forget most men are taller than women so they have a birds-eye view of your body, and lets be honest they are going to look.
I know I probably seem incredibly conservative in the face of modern ideas of about privacy and nudity, but thats just how I roll. I would love to hear your rules, let me know below.
