Fashion That Fits
Those too tall for standard garment sizing experience fashion in an entirely different way. Recurring disappointments can build negative connotations with lasting effects in the life of a fashion consumer.
"For a long time I struggled with clothes not fitting me due to my height. And although I feel, overall, a lot more confident about myself and my clothes and style, it's left a bit of a lingering feeling. I bought a pair of very skinny grey jeans in Canada that I just really love. But when it came to wearing them I suddenly felt really self-conscious because they were so figure hugging and I wasn't used to something fitting me so well. I've been so used to clothes not being the right length or width that I still often feel like I'm not able to tell if things do actually suit me."
