A Suit For Every Body

Aug 17, 2007
Suits are no longer only for men. Of course, this has been the case for quite some time now, but it only becomes more and more evident that the fashion of women wearing suits was not a passing trend or merely a rebellion to prove that women could wear suits too. The fact is that there are suit styles that are perfect for women, more perfect than they've ever been for men, and women know this well.

Women look particularly good in a suit that is double breasted; this type of a jacket is best worn by men with broad shoulders; where women are concerned, it is best worn by virtually all women! That's a nice little advantage for women when it comes to shopping for a suit. Despite having an option for men's suits that will look good on a woman's body, there's also the all-too-obvious option of simply looking for a woman's suit that has good style. For shorter women, suits that have cropped jackets can look much better than the traditional sportcoat length. For taller women, the traditional jacket cut works famously.

Pant styles are a whole different issue. Pant styles differ more than jackets styles do, especially when it comes to women's suits. For men, one cut of pants will do, only choose your waist size and measure the length, hem them, and you're good to go. For women, the task is not such an easy one. Women searching for a flattering pants suit should consider the type of jeans or other pants they usually wear, taking pleats, waist styling, and cut of the leg into consideration. Straight legs do not look good on everybody, but fortunately for women, there is a multitude of other options to be found at virtually every clothing store. The best way to know is to consider the shape you normally wear and then try on that cut with the jacket; probably, this is the best choice. However, you should always consult with the people working in the shop in which you are buying as part of their job is to know which style of suit looks best on which type of body.

Many women's suits come with skirts instead of pants. This is an excellent option if you feel that pants are not quite dressy enough, not quite professional enough, or if you work in a climate where pants are too hot for summer days. Straight skirts generally come in two lengths, either above the knee, or to the knee. Once again, your own taste in skirts and the shape/length of your legs should be the main considerations in making this choice. There are also skirts that have a little body to them in this knee-length style; this is generally a dressier style than the straight skirt, which is traditionally a woman's business suit.

There are suits for every body on today's market. With a little bit of searching and little bit of trying on, everyone can find the style that they prefer and that is flattering to their own body type.
