Ten years ago I was much fatter. So I actually fit into RTW. While still having something of my current love of dramatic clothing, my size and more junior role (not to mention, the associated relative financial restriction) meant I generally wore lots of mid-market department store items from the likes of House of Fraser, John Lewis, Allders, M&S, and so on. Some interesting colours, but generally more conservative and restrained than I wear these days. Losing weight really did help me shake off some sartorial shackles. It took me years to adjust to a different figure though; for years afterward I still wore items that didn't really suit my new build.
