What's a buxom broad gotta do to get a suit around here?
What are some good stores for suit shopping in Vancouver? I'm looking for something conservative, of course, but I don't want to look frumpy or out-of-date... which I'm guessing will be a danger in the cheaper-suit range.
How much should I expect to spend on a decent women's suit? Ideally I'd like an answer in the form of "price range $x to $y will get you a suit with these characteristics, price range $y to $z will get you a suit with those other characteristics". I'm ok with cheaper materials, but I don't want something that's going to fall apart really quickly.
I've got an hourglass-ish figure: bust 106cm (42in), waist 87cm (34in), hips 117cm (46in). So I'll need to get the suit tailored for it to fit well. I've heard that buying a cheap suit and getting it tailored is a good idea anyway. What tailor/seamstress should I go to? Any suggestions for brands/stores with suits that fit well for curvier women?
