Hang pants, jackets, button-front shirts, dresses, and skirts. T-shirts, pajamas, sweaters, yoga wear, and underthings should be folded and put in dresser drawers, on shelves, or in bins. Don’t put matching tops and bottoms together, since this stops you from seeing other ways to combine them.

Why do dressing rooms make you look fat?
It’s a simple answer: harsh overhead lighting direction. When light falls parallel to your body, skimming across your skin, every flaw shows because those little wrinkles or tiny craters of cellulite, or stretch marks are in shadow thanks to the harsh light and how it’s falling down your body.
Why is dressing room lighting so bad?
