Is Fashion Keeping up with Evolution?

Over the last 150 years, the average height of Western populations has grown by around four inches. That’s quite a substantial change over a relatively short period of time. Height isn’t the only thing that has changed; human weight is increasing at a faster rate than ever before, and there are more obese people now than at any previous point in history. These changes are mainly due to the effects of improved standards of living and healthcare rather than evolutionary or genetic causes, but they still represent a comparative form of evolution. With the shape of human bodies undergoing such seismic shifts, what are designers and clothes manufacturers doing to address these changes, if anything?

Size exact

Clothes are made based on an original design, with the proportions increased as the sizes go up. The problem with this model is that there are very few people who conform to the template version of human physiology. This means that for clothes to fit, you may be forced to make a compromise. To get your pants to do up, you may need to buy them a size larger, which then means you have too much length in the legs. To fit a shirt across your bust without the buttons popping off, you may have to buy one that’s too long in the arms. Or maybe you’re tall and skinny, and if you buy a sweater that has long enough arms, your body is swamped in a woolen tent. There are as many difficulties getting clothes to fit as there are differences in the shape of the human body.

Specialist retailers

The growth of the Internet and online shopping has made supplying specialist markets far more viable for retailers. When plus size women from anywhere across the world can order their clothes from you, your business’s client base expands enormously, instead of being restricted to a local populace. There are specialist outlets for many body types now, for example, shorter women (petite), taller women (over 5’8”), and plus size women (size 12 and above), like the Life is Chic Boutique – plus size online boutique.

Handmade and bespoke

Many women who struggle to find well-fitting clothes turn their hand to making their own. If you have the skills and the time, this could be an ideal solution, as you can make any item of clothing tailored to match your physique. If your talents aren’t well-suited to needlework, learning how to sew at evening classes might be an idea, or if you have no desire to become a dressmaker, you can hire a professional and get made to measure clothes. This option does come at a premium, unless you can find a local seamstress who is able to make clothes for you.

How technology is helping

There are several technological innovations that can help you find clothes that fit your shape and look good on you as well:

  • Visual search technology can use scanning to match size, proportions, shape, and color
  • Augmented reality-enabled virtual fitting rooms that simulate the experience of trying clothes on
  • 3D body scanners take complete measurements that will ensure clothing fits your exact body shape
  • Avatars are being used to enable the design of clothes that will fit any required body shape
  • Software that can cope with the differences in clothes sizes between brands, so you can match the fit and not rely on variables in sizing

Real women

Several years ago, women finally got tired of being fed the same idealized version of body shape by fashion designers and the media, and became increasingly vocal about the need for the industry to change. Some of them took matters into their own hands by launching companies selling clothing for real women instead of Miss Average, and these companies have been very successful. Plus size ranges are being backed by major advertising campaigns, and all sizes and shapes are being offered complete ranges of fashion clothing, swimwear and lingerie, instead of just vast billowy dresses designed to cover the shape of your body rather than showing it off.

High fashion

The catwalks and haute couture designers are notorious for using tall, slender models to show off designs. They have come under a lot of criticism in recent times, because of the poor body image problems young girls have been suffering as a result of having stick-thin models displayed as the ideal. Magazines and websites have been similarly criticized, and further taken to task for the use of photoshopping techniques and airbrushed photographs. Rather than looking to design clothes for real body shapes, the industry seems to have been putting all its efforts into making its models seem ever more unrealistically perfect. There are some signs that things could be changing, however, for example, there are far more plus size models fronting key promotional campaigns. Many plus size and realistically proportioned models such as Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham are creating huge social media followings and being given lucrative modeling contracts. They are adored by women because they represent body shapes that normal women can identify with.

So, is fashion keeping up?

There is progress being made, but at a frustratingly slow pace. The averagely proportioned mannequin is still the main blueprint for clothing design and manufacture. Most catwalk models are still tall and willowy, and magazines still predominantly use slender, idealized models for their photo shoots. One of the key problems is that models that don’t conform to the manufactured ideal shape are still not taken seriously in the wider industry. Although they may be feted for what they are doing and what they represent, they are still always referred to as “plus size” rather than just “models.” The implication here is that they are different from the norm, and that although this is admirable, they are not equal to the industry standard models. A change in attitude across the fashion industry and society as a whole needs to take place so that women are seen as equal to each other whatever their shape, rather than being judged on a scale that holds size zero as the perfect shape.

What Should I Expect After My Facelift?

A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that removes signs of aging and tightens up the face, jaw, and neck. During the surgery, your doctor will remove excess facial skin and reposition the face and neck tissues to achieve the desired results.

If you plan to have a facelift, you may be worried about the recovery period. Fortunately, most people have a fairly easy and comfortable recovery from this surgery. Your experience will depend on what type of facelift you had and how much work was done, but there are some things that everyone can expect during their recovery.

Immediately After Surgery

When you wake up from the procedure, your incisions will be covered with large bandages that put pressure on your face to minimize swelling and bruising. Your doctor will probably have placed a small tube in the skin behind one or both of your ears to drain fluid or blood.

Most people feel very groggy for the first few hours after waking up. It’s also common to feel dizzy or lightheaded, so you should be careful when standing up and moving around. You should always have someone with you when you need to get up. Your doctor may want you to stay overnight in the hospital for observation, but most people go home the day of their surgery.

Your face will probably hurt immediately after your surgery, but your doctor will give you pain medication to manage the discomfort. For most people, pain is only an issue for the first day or two of the surgery. Your doctor may prescribe you pain medication for the first few days or the first week of your recovery, or you can take over-the-counter painkillers.

You’ll need a caretaker to drive you home from your procedure and stay with you for at least 24 hours. This should be a trusted friend or family member who can bring you what you need and take you back to the hospital in case of an emergency.

First Week of Recovery

A day or two after your surgery, you’ll see your doctor again for a follow up visit. Your doctor will remove the drainage tube, apply an antibiotic ointment, and maybe apply new bandages. After a couple days, you should feel well enough to start moving around the house. Moving will help improve your circulation, which will shorten your recovery time. However, you should still take it easy, avoid strenuous activity, and get plenty of rest.

Make sure that you don’t put pressure on the incisions. Don’t sleep on your side, and don’t wear anything that needs to be pulled over your head. The incisions will crust over as they heal, but you shouldn’t touch or pick at them.

Two or three days after your surgery, your bandages will be switched out for a facial sling or compression garment. The swelling will probably reach its peak three or four days after the surgery and then start to decline. You’ll have to keep your head elevated while you sleep to help with the swelling. Bruising is still common at this point, too.

One week into your recovery, your surgeon will remove your stitches and check the incisions for infection or inflammation. At this point, you should be able to sleep flat instead of elevating your head.

Second Week of Recovery

Some bruising and swelling on your face and neck is still normal during the second week of your recovery. You may also see bruising around your eyes or behind your ears. Some people feel a strange tingling or burning sensation around this time. This is normal, but if you’re concerned, you can always call your doctor to make sure nothing’s wrong.

You still won’t be able to do any heavy or strenuous activity, but you shouldn’t be bedridden. You may feel self-conscious about being seen in social situations because of the swelling, but you should take easy walks to help with your circulation. Your doctor will advise you against going out in direct sunlight, though. You can apply makeup around the edges of your incisions or scars to cover them while you wait for them to heal.

Long Term Results

During the third and fourth weeks of your recovery, the incisions should start to look much better. They’ll look puckered or bunched up after the surgery, but they’ll smooth out during weeks three and four. At this point, you should be ready to return to work or to your normal social situations. There may still be some noticeable swelling, but everyone heals at a different pace, and it’s hard to predict how quickly you’ll recover.

It takes a full year for the permanent results of your facelift to be visible. Residual swelling and tightness can last for months. You also may experience changes in skin sensation for a year after your surgery.

If you ever have any questions or concerns about your surgery or your recovery, you should contact your doctor. It never hurts to get an additional checkup to make sure you’re healing properly. Following your doctor’s post-op instructions is the best way to achieve great results and have the most comfortable and successful recovery possible.

Dr. Stephen Weber is a board certified facial plastic surgeon in Denver. He and his team perform facelifts and a variety of other cosmetic procedures and reconstructive surgeries.

What You Need To Know When Building A Tiny House

When it comes to building a home, you’ll want to make sure that you have an effective plan. Tiny houses are now all the rage, with these 400 square foot homes being something that many single people or couples want for them. It isn’t only easy to clean and maintain but it also looks aesthetic to look at. And did I mention it’s less expensive than building a grand house?

While tiny homes are all the rage today, not a lot of people know exactly what it takes to build one. For those who are wondering about how they can build a tiny house, read on to learn more!

  • Setting The Budget

Tiny houses don’t need to be so expensive but there are quite a few models which can take a toll on your budget. That’s why it’s important to have a strict budget even from the beginning of you planning for your tiny home. Some people build tiny homes from just a few hundred dollars down to sending thousands! Take note that if you aren’t able to build parameters on how much you should be spending, you wouldn’t be able to control it and may go overboard.

When setting a budget, make sure that you develop a master plan. You’ll need to know exactly how your house would look like, the materials to use, as well as how much material you’ll need. After that, do the research online and calculate how much you’ll be needing and add a 10% cushion to that, just in case. And there’s your budget!

  • Know Where the Home Is

When building a tiny home, expect it to have wheels and be able to move around a lot. No need to stick to one area! But that’s also something you have to take account for. You shouldn’t build a tiny home if you don’t know where you’ll be able to place it in. Just because a tiny house has wheels doesn’t mean you’ll be moving it around states once you complete the construction.

I recommend that you build your tiny home in areas near hardware stores. That way, you’ll be able to take quick trips to the hardware store if ever you need anything.

  • Consider The Insurance

People are taking care of the materials and how to build their tiny houses, but the one thing that they forget is their insurance! Remember that if you own a tiny house that’s designed to be placed on existing land permanently, then you should cover it with a home insurance policy. BUT, if your home is on wheels, then there are other options to take note of. For those who will be moving their homes not over once every year, then get a stationary trailer insurance policy. For those who plan to move over once a year, then a travel trailer insurance policy works best.

  • Size and Layout

The one thing people usually do wrong when building a tiny home is that they have a ton of things to consider along the way. There are a ton of must-haves for their home, ending up with it looking impossible or cluttered. That’s why instead of you thinking about your home’s tiny layout to sacrifice the “must-haves” think about the small spaces in your home, which can give you a chance to see what you can do. Look after the size and layout first before you add anything you feel like is a “must-have.”

  • Try It Out Before You Buy

It’s crucial to test or check out a tiny home before you get one (if you plan on getting a pre-constructed one rather than build one ground up). So before you do plan on purchasing one, try to rent a tiny home and spend one week in it, getting a feel and seeing if it’s right for you. Rent tiny homes with spaces and layouts similar to what you want. This will help you weigh the pros and cons of your dream home.

Wrapping It Up

And there you have it! Building a tiny home may not be as different as building a grand home, but there are still things you’ll still need to learn in order to ensure that your home will look and feel beautiful from the moment you begin building it down to the final product.

I hope that this article on what you should know on how to build a tiny house helped you out. So don’t wait any longer and begin your plans on building a home with Best Builders or on your own today!

Handy Tips For Getting Your Newborn To Sleep

“Will my baby sleep through the night?” This question is often asked by many new (and exhausted moms), the answer is yes! However, some babies will be angelic and sleep through when they are very young; others may take that little bit longer. Unfortunately, there is no firm timetable, so all you can do is create the best conditions for your little one.

All babies have different sleep patterns, but it is really after six weeks that regular sleep cycles start to develop. At this time, they will have no concept of night and day and will sleep for up to fifteen hours, although not all at once! Breastfeeding mothers are more likely to feed on demand, for example, when the baby is awake and hungry (and when their milk is available) so in the early weeks it is difficult to develop a pattern, but this will soon happen. The main thing in the early stages is to ensure that your baby is comfortable and safe and part of that is choosing the right place for them to sleep.

Bassinet or Crib

Every girlfriend, parent guide, experienced mom will have their advice to give, and the stores are full of different options. In the very early stages, when you bring your new bundle home, a glamorous bassinet is a great option. You can keep the baby close to you, in your bedroom if you wish while you try to relax, and it will take up much less room than a crib and is also a more economical option. Your baby will feel snug and cocooned, rather like still being in your womb, and will gain a sense of security and warmth, enabling them to settle more readily for sleep. Don’t forget to make time for yourself while the baby is sleeping; you can read a book to unwind, try to catch up on sleep yourself or try a relaxing pursuit such as origami way.

Moving on

As your baby grows and becomes more mobile (turning in their sleep) they will need more space, so this is the time to consider moving them into a crib. By this age (usually three to six months) their feeding patterns have normally emerged and therefore the need to have them close to you is less, so they can move into the wonderful nursery that you have prepared for them. One of the sensible options to consider when you are selecting your crib is one that will eventually convert into a Junior Bed – this not only saves you money but means that your child will already be familiar with their sleeping environment and the only change will be that the bars have been removed.

Disruptions to sleep

As your baby’s body changes and they become more ‘physical,’ meaning they are now completely rolling over or pulling themselves up against the bars of a crib, you may see a change to their nightly sleeping pattern. Don’t panic – this is often a short-term ‘blip,’ and very soon they will be back to their established routine. Whatever their age, it is really useful to develop a routine, whether it is their nightly bottle for little ones, a ten-minute rock in your nursing chair, or even a gentle massage. Whenever this activity occurs, your little one will recognize that it is time for bed and sleep. Then you and your family can turn on the night light, kiss them goodnight and relax!

  1. Use disposable body wipes or medicated/herbal wet tissues right after a workout. This will help in removing excess oil from your skin.
  2. Always carry a small towel with you to wipe the excess sweat.
  3. Avoid touching your facewith bare hands to keep bacterial infections and acne at bay.
  4. Use afoot deodorizer to clean your feet after a heavy workout.
  5. Skip the tanning bed. It’s harmful to your skin, in so many ways. There’s also the range of cosmetic skin concerns, like wrinkles and sun spots. Opt for a self-tanning lotion or simply working out outdoors with SPF will give you a natural glow.
  6. BYOT (Bring Your Own Towel!)If you opt for a gym washroom for a shower, be careful of the towels and cleansing products you use. Do not use towels already used by someone. The sweat of other people can cause acne on your skin. Cleaning your skin should be hygienic.
  7. Wear fresh clothes after showering.Also, avoid wearing gym clothes after washing yourself clean. Gym clothes will be sweaty and grimy; they may cause acne and other skin related problems.
  8. Avoid close contact.Other people’s sweat may also cause skin acne, pimples and other related problems. That hug to your trainer or gym buddy can end up triggering a breakout.
  9. Skip the hot water.Sure,your muscles are sore, and you’re in the mood for a hot shower after a workout. Hot water strips skin of vital oils, leaving you with dry, itchy, dull skin.
  10. Reduce the redness.Calm down a flushed face with your own redness control remedy made up of a little bit of iced green tea and a spray bottle. You’ll cool down your skin and add in a few extra anti-oxidants in the process.
  11. Rehydrate your skin.  After enduring a good workout and cleanse, it’s critical to re-establish the natural moisture and oils that have been removed from your skin.  When it comes to your face, you really should invest in a high quality, fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich product that includes vitamins A and E and the super-ingredient hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound that is expert at restoring moisture to your skin and has also been shown to stimulate collagen production. If you’ve been exercising outdoors, a moisturizer with anti-oxidant ingredients is important to help repair damage caused by UV exposure and other environmental factors.
  12. Go bare. Morning gym people there’s no need to apply make-up. If you work out after work consider taking a face-wipe to remove dirt, make-up which may blend with sweat triggering breakouts. You want your skin to be able to breathe while you’re working out.
  13. Wear a hairband.Hair should always be pulled back from your face, not only because of sweat, but because of your hair products, too. If you are seeing breakouts on your forehead or hairline, mousses, gels, or other hair products could be to blame. An elastic headband worn behind the ears about an inch from the hairline keeps stray hairs off the face.
  14. Wear gloves when working out.In addition to protecting hands from rough calluses, gloves also prevent the transmission of bacteria and viruses like warts and staphylococcus bacteria; which can cause impetigo. Impetigo is a common skin infection that can be easily transmitted at the gym and result in blisters and sores. If you choose not to wear gloves during a work-out, disinfect your equipment with a wipe or spray.

The Pros And Cons Of Solar Power


When you plan on installing solar power systems in your home, you’ll be choosing one of the best environment-friendly decisions! But of course, there are a few things to take note of before you make the decision. It’s best to know about what solar power has to offer, as well as the disadvantages. So read on as I show you the pros and cons of solar power!

The Pros of Solar Power


  • Reduce Electric Bills!


This is one of the main reasons people install solar power systems, as these would generate their own electricity and you won’t need to depend in electric utility. As a result, it reduces the monthly electric bill for decades, as they last for about 30 years. There can also be times you can totally eliminate the monthly electric bills!


  • Better Value for Your Properties


There are millions of people around the United States who would like to install solar panels in their home but have no idea or time to figure out how to install them, or to find companies to do the job. This is why the value of your home will rise because of the installation of solar panels, making it easier for you to sell your home with a good profit.


  • It Can Pay YOU Back


Did you know that there are solar incentives in the United States? Because of this, your solar panels will be able to give you profit, apart from saving on your electricity bills! Solar renewable energy credits, as well as net metering, will have you earn bill credits or money as the solar panel system produces electricity. It’s a great return of investment!


  • More Control On Costs


I’m sure you have felt anxiety when facing your electricity bills because you’ll never be able to control the increasing rates! The costs of solar power has decreased but electricity costs have increased, with the rise continuing as the years pass! That is why through solar power, you won’t have to worry about the rising costs anymore.


  • Environment-Friendly


This is another huge advantage for the whole world! Thanks to using solar power, you will be reducing carbon emissions and the use of fossil fuels. It’s a cost-effective way to help reduce carbon and help save the planet. Use of solar power will also help the United States become energy independent instead of relying on producers abroad.


The Cons of Solar Power


  • It’s Not For All Roofs


Unfortunately, your roof may not be compatible with solar system panels. This is because rooftop panels are installed through connecting mounting systems to the roof. Those with historical homes and have cedar or slate tiles for their roofs may find difficulty in installing the panels. Those who have homes with skylights of rooftop additions may find it expensive or difficult to install solar panels as well. Fortunately, there are solutions to that, such as ground mounted solar panels or having community solar gardens.


  • Not for Those Who Are Moving


Yes, the solar panels help increase value to your home but not so much that you’ll be able to pay it off once you move! For those who are moving homes in a short while, it’s not best to install solar panel systems as the payback period takes about eight years.


  • Low Electricity Costs = Low Solar Savings


If your electricity costs are already low to begin with, then you may not find much advantage on solar panels, as your solar savings will be low as well. Those who live in states with low electricity costs will feel like it is a waste to invest in solar panel systems, compared to those who live in states with higher electricity costs.


  • Expensive Costs and Difficult To Find Companies For Installment


If you are unable to avail solar financing, then you may have been discouraged from the front-up costs! It can get quite expensive and not all of us would have the cash to invest on solar panel systems. Fortunately, there are financing options you can avail.

Another con is the difficulty of finding reputable installers to work with, though extensive searches can help you find one many people in your town trust.

In Conclusion

Through being more knowledgeable on the advantages and disadvantages solar power has, you’ll be able t make the wise decision and see if this type of energy is best for your home or business. So if you are interested in installing solar power systems in your area, start to look for reputable companies who will be able to do so today!


I hope that this article on the pros and cons of solar power helped you know more about how this type of energy works and if it’s good for you. If you have any questions or would like to share your experiences on solar power, then comment down below. I would love to hear what you have to think.
