Get a great fit in all of your clothes—even if your body is not as it used to be! Over time, we all experience body shifts. Formerly trim areas gradually protrude, and fuller areas show the effects of gravity. The upper back and shoulders might be getting a little rounded. You might find that you’re no longer as tall as you once were. Look around you, and you’ll see that these changes happen to just about everyone. Even if your figure has changed, you don’t have to settle for garments with an unflattering fit.
