2. Too tight

While fitted clothing is flattering, trying to squeeze into a size too small to look smaller never works. It doesn't matter if you're petite or plus size, fit or full-figured — if you look like you can't fit into your clothes, you're going to look bigger than you actually are. And face it, it's uncomfortable wearing clothing that pinches, restricts movement, and constricts breathing.

Sizing is never universal, and sizes sometimes vary even within the same brand. Always go for the garment that fits and feels good, no matter what size you see on the label.
