It's worth reading the whole thing for more context, but the TL;DR version:
"...everything you will ever see on a celebrity’s body, including their outfits when they’re out and about and they just get caught by a paparazzo, has been tailored, and the same goes for everything on What Not To Wear. "
I know I wasn't the only one whos mind was blown by that. It makes complete sense to me, but it's not something I've ever thought of. I do think it's something that should be mentioned on the show. Someone pointed out to me that they do mention it-when a woman tries on an article of clothing that gapes here or there, they say "you can get that altered." But it's not something that's emphasized, and it's not something I would have thought they'd do to EVERY piece of clothing.
I don't have the money to get everything I own altered (though it's probably more maneagable if you do it as you buy each piece of clothing) but at least this helps me realize that it's not my body that's the problem, and size doesn't matter. I think this realization can benefit others too, which is why I want to spread this around. It can be so hard to feel good when nothing fits, so I hope this helps you maintain a positive view of your own body at those times-whether you're shopping for jeans, shirts, swimsuits, bras, or anything.
(And yes, I did eventually find khakis that mostly fit-but I still need a belt, or they gape at the waist, as do almost all of my pants)
