If you want to put the smile back on your dial when you look in the mirror, this guide gives you 2 essential tips you won't want to miss. Not only will you look younger but you'll fix some other issues that may have been nagging at you too!
gather MY girls
The universal issue for all women over 30 is bust sag. Unless you get a pair of fakies, whether they're big or small, it's inevitable your girls are going to point south sooner or later. And NOTHING can make you look older, faster, than saggy tatas! Don't believe me? Check these pics out...
The wrong bra
These are some examples to illustrate how aging the wrong bra can be. You don't need to see a face to experience the visual impact. It's all downhill!! And...
That's not all. The wrong bra will make your tummy look bigger and upper arms look masculine or chunky and your chest look broad! That's ok if that makes you happy. But if not...
wrong VS right bra
The difference is measured in 'years'
how to choose bras that make you look younger...
These two guides will help you work out where you're going wrong in the bra department and how to fix it. If a bra can make you look and feel years younger isn't it worth getting right?
check MY shoulder lines...
The second essential tip that will make you look like you've been drinking from the fountain of eternal youth, is to check your shoulders vs the shoulder line of your clothes!
When it comes to fixing a bunch of things that will make you look younger (and slimmer) this is the detail that almost every woman forgets to check. And it's really the grand daddy of them all. If you get this wrong, nothing will look right!
My shoulder line
It doesn't matter whether you are tall or short, all women need to check whether the shoulder line of a top or dress fits perfectly against their shoulders. That's because aside from wearing the wrong bra, it's the #1 issue that makes women look older than they are or feel! Here's why...
If the shoulder line of the garment was designed for someone longer in the upper body than you, the entire garment will sit too low on your body and make your posture and bust sag!
This is a picture of me to illustrate. This dress needs the shoulder to be taken up by ~2" to fit my shoulders perfectly! You can see how much better my posture and bust look. But that's not all...
If the shoulder doesn't fit perfectly, the waistline will be sitting in the wrong spot too. Did you know this is one of the top #5 reasons that women look like they have belly sag?
You can see the dramatic difference when both shoulders are adjusted!
This is an adjustment (we call it a tweak) that 90% of women need to make every time they buy a top, dress, jacket or cardi...
If you want to look younger, slimmer and have better posture don't skip this tip!!
Check out the steps to fix this below...
how to fix this problem with clothes you already own:
- 1Wear your most supportive bra
- 2Try on each garment
- 3Gently pull the shoulder fabric up
- 4Check the underarm sits comfortably
- 5Peg each side as shown above
If you need to raise the shoulder of the garment with pegs by 1/2" or more it will make a dramatic difference to the overall fit from shoulder hips. If you love the difference (like my blue dress above), it may be the big 'ah ha' you've been searching for and it's definitely worth considering the cost/benefit of having these alterations done
There is a substantial difference in cost to make shoulder alternations if your garment has sleeves or if it is lined
BEFORE YOU BUY NEW CLOTHES
Once you see the dramatic difference it makes to have the perfect fit across your shoulders you should get into the habit of checking this before you buy. And if the garment does need alterations, it's best to factor in both the time and money commitment before you make the purchase
Of course, it's always better to buy a garment that fits you perfectly in the first place because alterations can often go wrong. If you want to avoid needing to have alterations you might like to try our 'customize service' where you get the tweaks you need for no extra cost. You can sit back and relax while we take care of the detail. Check the benefits below...
