March 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #14: Write Down Your Measurements Before You Start Shopping

Tip of the Week

Shopping is a sport for most women --- and plus-sizes are no exception. However, most of us have a certain amount of time set aside for finding the latest fashions, so it is important to do your homework before heading out the door. Start by writing down your measurements. This is especially important if you plan to shop online. You need bust, waist and hip sizes.

Try on some of your existing wardrobe to get a good idea of what your number size is (16, 18, 20, etc.) and your letter size is (XL, 1X, 2X, 3X, etc.). Also, write down special notes (things like wearing a specific size in a particular brand, etc.). Armed with this information, you are ready to shop.
