disco,I think my body type is very hard to dress as well..because, like you, I have a naturally small frame (which is carrying around some extra pounds). And like you, buying pants is mostly frustrating because, as odd as this sounds, my actual waist and hips is small, but my belly has too much meat on it, and I have a curvy rear end. So, what usually happens is only one side or the other fits. Meaning, if the waist fits, the rear doesnt, and visa versa. I have found that the type of pants that better work on my (odd)shape is stretchy type materials with elastic waists; fabrics that give and mold to my body. Maybe you can try that? Thats one more reason I like the LUkastyle line! Try the pants. I think youll like them.
Buying dresses and tops can also be a little challenge for me, since, Im short (5'4)and fuller busted, and if I want to accomodate my bustline, I often have to up a size, which can then unfortunately leave the rest baggy. Once again I have to plug Lukastyle becuase even the tops have great give and can really move and work with whatever body shape one has.
Best wishes! You are definately NOT alone.o
Is anyone else having problems with the sizing charts? Last week I had to send 8 items back ...clothing I would have have loved to keep (love my Lukastyle!)but couldnt because I pick the size according to the sizing chart at HSN, and the clothes arrive so off-base..large.. I have to go through the bother and expense of returning them. Just got a few more of my lovely Lukastyle again today, and here we go again. Thanks to the inaccurate sizing charts I have to return yet another item! I read the reviews and I dont think it is fair for the designers of the fashion lines to be blamed when this is clearly an HSN sizing chart issue.
Yes i have had that issue several times.
Fashions are hard for me to order do to inconsistent sizing.
My body shape is hard as well to find the right one as it is.
Have a small frame,however need the room in the waist,ab,and tummy area.
My lower hip thighs are narrow.
Can't win in the pants department
Anyone else have this problem?
