Fitting Room Etiquette 101: How to Have a Fit

Now that the Prom-Mother’s Day-Graduation-Wedding season is upon us, every moment of fitting room traffic will be rush hour.  This is the perfect time to learn how to have a fit. A good fit.  Here are some tips that will help you and the retailer:

  1. Dress for the occasion.  When you are going to try on clothes, wear clothes that are easy to get in and out of.
  2. Go to the bathroom BEFORE you shop. There is nothing worse than having to give up your dressing room to go to the bathroom.
  3.  Wear under garments . . . PLEASE.  Would you want to be second in line to test drive a bathing suit after the first person rode it bareback?
  4. When trying on blouses, skirts, and dresses, pull them over you head.  Do NOT step into them. It is very easy to break garment closures (i.e. zippers, buttons, etc…) when you step into these garments.  Step into jumpsuits, rompers, slacks, jeans, and shorts.
  5. Do not try on clothes right after you have been to the gym, run a marathon, or completed the 5k bike-a-thon for the homeless.   Hygiene  is of paramount importance.  Also, clothes cling to a sweaty body like  flies on flypaper.
  6. If you are pulling up a pair of pants or skirt and you are struggling at the hip, gracefully accept the agony of defeat, take it off, and try on the next size.   
  7. If you put a dress over your head and it won’t go past your bust or hip line, see number 5.
  8. When you finish trying on a garment, put it back on the hanger immediately.   Garments should never be placed on the hanger inside out. 
  9. Gather all your items before you leave.  I once left a pair of Gucci sunglasses in a dressing room, returned for them 15 minutes later and they were gone. I am still looking for the person who took my eye candy.
  10. Always shop at least an hour before closing time.  When you are in a rush you tend to dress quickly and unintentionally damage the clothes (beak seams, pop buttons, etc…).

Be calm and shop.  Remember, life is not perfect but your outfit can be.
