I was recently having a conversation with a bespoke tailor friend and colleague, and she mentioned that she has a friend with scoliosis who has difficulty buying clothes that camouflage her scapula, which sticks out her back at an odd angle. My friend (Leanne) mentioned she’d done sone web searching and could find nothing on how to dress a body that has any sort of asymmetry such as scoliosis. So I gave her these tips and I thought they may be of interest to some of you too.
If you have asymmetrical facial features, such as a broken nose or one that is bent to one side, or one eye significantly higher or different from the other. Or other asymmetry in your body caused by such things as scoliosis, if you wish to distract from this, look for asymmetry in your clothing design.
If you’re wearing clothes that divide your body in half evenly, such as a jacket, put a brooch on one shoulder to create some asymmetry.
Look for asymmetrical hemlines or other detail on only one side of clothes to distract from your natural asymmetry and create more harmony.
