Iíve been reading complaints about the fit of Meghanís clothing for, what, two years now? And this is the first time where I thought a dress was ill fitted. All those other times I really just didnít see it. And thatís it, people complain about everything and nothing at all. And if people complain about everything, it just loses itís value. It becomes noise. Itís also not much fun to read.

So... this is a great dress and I hope seeing it again in, perhaps, a few months. Letís see how it fits by then.

Actually, I never really look at anything but the actual garment a royal is wearing. As far as this dress goes, I'm definitely loving the retro vibe to back in the 50s when dresses were more romantic with tulle and full skirts and totally screams "female".

Maybe its just me but newer, on trend fashions that get more and more daring as the years go by and leave little to the imagination don't do anything for me at all.

I agree! I LOVE the retro/vintage look. It is usually very elegant/classic. Much preferred to the slit to the waist style....barely a top style.

Fit is important to some people, and not at all to others. To me, it is integral to the overall effect of a garment, and, ultimately, how well the garment suits the wearer. When we are looking at bespoke or high end designer clothing, fit is important to the luxe look. Something off the rack from high street doesn't get the same level of scrutiny, because it is not such a major investment of money. To me, having something bespoke from a high end designer that gaps, strains, sags, bags, or crumples is a much bigger deal than something from Zara or H & M. Add in the fact that the royals we talk about on this forum all have the resources to have skilled tailoring accessible, and having a high end garment that fits incorrectly just looks careless. That's how I look at it, anyway, and why I frequently comment on fit on most of the fashion threads. It's all about paying attention to the details, but that isn't a big deal to everyone. It's one factor in many.

I remember an interview (or something along this line) with Jennifer Aniston about how she tailors even her t-shirts, to still look the best in something very simple and, let's say, off-duty. It's one of the simplest tricks of the fashion industry - something made specifically for your body (not even your body type, but your exact measurements) will always look good, even if it's the simplest outfit of white t-shirt and jeans.

Below the Glamour article where I find this answer from Jennifer Aniston:

It is also a big deal to me and I look for it in all the threads on royal fashion. It is really appalling to me that a made to measure outfit doesnít fit perfectly, what is the point!

And what a number of folks have pointed out is, a post partum womanís body, especially one who is nursing, can change drastically within an hour or two. So a dress may have fit during a fitting, but not at the event-because her body changed size and shape.

I dislike the dress. I donít like the design or the fabric.

A number of posts around accusations of 'body shaming' have been removed, as this is not the place for them - and indeed, as another poster mentioned, is how the Sussex threads get closed down.

I will link the recent update to the "A Notice From The Moderating Team" thread found in the Sussex forum proper -- it's premise applies to Sussex threads across the board. Please take a read if you haven't already.
