For a while, my mom had her clothes tailored. It can be a timesaver because once the tailor has your measurements and your preferred styles of clothing, all you need to do is pick the fabric. You don't have to go out shopping for what happens to be on the rack this season and try on one thing after another to see if they fit. If you are a non-standard size and want to dress in form-fitting clothes, it's even more of a timesaver.
I was a bodyshy child and despised being surrounded by people with measuring tapes, so I got away from all that as fast as I could.
I try hard to act as if people I interact with are not being judgemental of me, because if I start thinking about all the ways they might disapprove of me, I'd never be able to open my mouth.
