In this week’s roundup, a new study by the University of Michigan suggests that if you want the best bang for the buck, choose a dress that’s a little bigger and a little more fitted.
Wear a dress made of a fabric that’s designed to fit a body that’s been altered in the last 30 days.
The University of Pennsylvania’s study found that people who’ve undergone a cosmetic procedure are more likely to want a dress of a certain length and length of skirt than those who haven’t, with the difference in the amount of fabric being the main factor.
While this study was carried out in an online survey, the results are also applicable in real life.
A woman who’s undergone a liposuction, breast augmentation or an oophorectomy might not want to have her clothes changed by a tailor.
“There’s some really good research that shows how women react to the changes they make,” says Dr. Michelle Kowalski, a senior associate professor of medical science at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and co-author of the study.
This is especially true in women who are already wearing clothes that are longer and/or less fitted than the average woman.
