I'm 5,8 feet tall.. I used to be 205 pounds. I've lost weight and now I'm 172 pounds.
I have an event coming up and I want to get a new suit to fit me the best.. of course I do still have fat around all the important places.
I've never been comfortable in suits.. I have only one that I got to wear in fancy events, but I actually wore it only once after I bought it, and wore a shirt and a tie ever since.
I'm wondering which of these two suit styles should be better on me?.. someone said to me that slim fit suits should make me look slimmer since it's SLIM (wink wink) fit.. somebody else told me that slim fit would illustrate the curves on my body and make me look even fatter. Anyone have an opinion on this? what about one vs two buttons?
Also.. How can I actually tell if the suit is slim fit or tailored fit?? I mean how can I tell by looking at it or wearing it, because I thought that the key for telling them apart was the slim longer lapel, but almost every suit I saw when browsing stores the other day had a slim longer lapel.
thank you in advance
