Keeping any embellishment and embroidery work on the minimum will really help you in achieving a stellar look.

Anarkali suits

Although anarkali suits have been a part of the Indian ethnic fashion scene for a while now, only recently have they begun to be worn as Navratri outfits. Selecting the right sort of anarkali suit should entirely depend on one’s comfort level and preferences. The key to looking good in an anarkali suit is to keep all the elements such as the color, embroidery, embellishment, prints, etc, well balanced, so that they compliment each other perfectly. Another reason to opt for an anarkali suit this Navratri, is the fact they suit most body types, also making them excellent gifts and presents for the festive season.

and other formal festive occasions, today they are even worn as separates, being paired individually with other styles. As far as choosing colors go, it is always better to choose colors that match up together the best.

What Are the Popular Bra Fabrics?

Whether you plan to buy the off-the-peg or bespoke lingerie, it can help to have a little knowledge of the types of fabrics used and their various benefits. The mass-produced bras can be manufactured with low-quality fabrics that don’t stand up to repeated use, so it helps to look for better quality options. Here are a few of the popular fabrics used for making bras:

Natural

A common natural fiber used in bras is cotton, which has a variety of useful benefits. It is very breathable and soft against the skin to make it a useful choice for day-to-day wear. Also, it is comfortable in hot climates and has the ability to resist snags and tears. Cotton is also a fabric that holds up well to regular washing for long-lasting use. However, cotton isn’t the best choice to provide the most needed support.

A further type of natural fiber is silk. This fiber is durable, lightweight and comfortable to not only feel great, but also useful to wick away moisture from the skin. The well-maintained silk items have the potential to last a long time. The long durability makes silk a practical choice for those looking to buy the expensive pieces of lingerie. Also, silk is a great choice for those that suffer from allergic reactions from other fabrics.

Semi-natural

A popular type of semi-natural fabric in the bra manufacturing industry is rayon which is often blended with other natural or synthetic fabrics. It is a very soft and smooth fabric that can copy the look and feel of cotton or silk items, but this depends on the manufacturing process. One of the most luxurious types of rayon is known as modal and is extremely soft against the skin. If the rayon fabric is used in bras it will likely be combined with polyester or spandex to give a higher degree of elasticity. A further benefit of this semi-natural fabric is the ability to avoid fading or shrinkage after repeated washes.

Synthetic

Virtually all bras contain a certain amount of synthetic fibers. This fabric is needed to add flexibility and stretch which are often lacking in natural alternatives. A great choice for bras that holds the required elastic properties is spandex. The spandex is only included in small quantities with a material like cotton to make sure the durability and breathability is maintained, while also having the required flexibility. Plus, spandex has the ability to regain its shape even after being stretched repeatedly. However, this synthetic fabric does present a risk of skin irritation for many people.

Does Size REALLY Matter When Shopping?

Does size really matter for Women when shopping for new clothing?

In this article, we will be talking about the differences of distinct sizes. A great example will be between a size 10 and 12. I’m sure you’ve tried different sizes clothing on at times (apart from your typical choice) and it felt like there was no difference? We’ll we’re discussing it HERE!

Personal experience

As most of you well know, I’m a guy! But I do know a thing or two about Fashion shopping… Not too long ago I was shopping for a pair of jeans to wear… They looked great! Just my size (32R), just the right tone of blue… my ideal pair of Jeans! I bought them, took them home and put them on and then the worst thing happens… They were too short for my legs! I couldn’t believe it! All of my other Jeans were the same size and fit PERFECTLY! So that’s what happened to me, have you experienced something similar in your past?

While looking into this topic, it appears that I’m not the only one who’s had the same ordeal. Sylvia, who writes for 40plusstyle.com says that her normal size is a size 6, but often needed to try size 4s on at times, as some of the clothes that are larger in dimensions just do not fit her. She has even managed to fit into a size 0!

Ordering online and offline can cause this so we can’t just blame the big corporate stores. The accuracy of the size of dresses, jeans or anything clothing and fashion related doesn’t seem to always be the right fit

What has been done to hide the truth?

I’m sure you’ve noticed it and it’s quite obvious to notice when you REALLY look for it. Sizes are now used as a range rather than an absolute. A great example is a size 10 – 12 Black Maxi Dress. It will fit anyone from size 10 to 12. You even notice it across a lot of Women’s clothing products. What do you think about this? Should we mask the problem by giving a rough estimate of size or should we give EXACT sizes?

What can I do to make sure I get the perfect fit?

- Try it on first! It can be time consuming and we’ve all been there where we either try it on to make sure it fits or just take the clothing stores word for it that it definitely is a size 14. Get into a habit of trying clothes on while shopping and it will become a seamless experience!

- 30 day return policy. Check behind the counter or with the online store that your purchasing with. See if they have a returns policy so if it doesn’t fit, you can either exchange it for one that fits or get your money back.

- Judgement is not enough. Get measured. Many stores give you the option of measurements before and while wearing the clothing to ensure that it fits correctly. It’s more common more expensive Fashion stores such as Armani and Ralph Lauren but if you haven’t tried it, then give it a go! It’s a nice experience.
