I hear all the time from clients how stressful shopping is, and how "nothing ever fits". I totally understand! But the thing you have to remember is that sizing is never consistent, so PLEASE STOP getting down on yourself when your usual size all of a sudden doesn't fit. Sizing changes not only from one designer to the next, but also changes depending on the fabric, and the cut and style of the garment. Because of that, it's important to try on at least two sizes of the same garment, and pay attention to the fit, not the number on the tag!
