Lets say you buy a suit today and get it tailored to your body for a nice slim fit. What can be done again to the suit if either: you lose weight or gain weight?

If you think you might gain weight after you have the suit taken in, ask them to leave the outlets and not cut them and the suit can be let out. You never know where you may gain the weight. If you get bigger in the upper body, chest and arms from exercise you may have to buy a bigger size rather than altered.

If you lose weight, the suit would be taken in. That is up to a certain point. After reducing a couple inches it is better to buy the next size smaller.
