Is TOO TIGHT a look or a feeling?

How do determine if a garment is too tight? Is it based on how your body looks wearing it or based on how it makes you look? If you look all squeezed up but the garment feels comfortable does it mean it's not tight?

You look honestly in the mirror, but! forget you are looking at YOU!

The very first reaction you get, is what you really see...so the first 3-4 seconds.
Don't (then stand there any longer, telling yourself it's you!)

That's how every woman should look at herself, if you see it's wrong in those vital first few seconds, IT IS!

If that's the case, then it means that 'tight' is the style of the garment rather than the size not being big enough.
I see many woman these days in clothing that I deem to be much too tight. But they seem to be quite comfortable in it. I recently went to a graduation exercise and all the woman I saw were in tight clothing revealing as much of their figure as could be revealed. So it got me thinking that tight is a mode of fashion and not the end results of clothing that is size our two too small.
If you're comfortable then your clothes are fine.
Both! If you are not comfortable in your clothes, you are judging yourself by your perception of other's opinions of you.
I am a seamstress who gets a lot of people wanting me to alter clothes for them - which is fine if they're sensible about it. I will (safety)pin them how they want it done, then get them to touch their toes. The pins will warp and open if they've been strained. A dress hem to be raised will be pinned, then I'll have them do a squat in front of my mirror. It's revealing how many arguments between mothers and their teenage daughters are solved this way! There's no need for me to take sides at all!
If your clothes gape between the buttons, it is too tight; if you have diagonal or horizontal wrinkles whilst standing; it is not a good fit.
I'm not convinced it's the fashion. Do you see catwalk models dressed like that? Do you see the upper class dressed like that?
I feel that people these days are using their clothes to "hold" them, instead of their underwear (i.e: corsets, etc), which leads to strained or ripped seams that I then get asked to mend. I then have to tell them it was caused by the clothes being too tight in the first place, that if I were to mend it, it would only happen again - besides, in mending a seam you have to take it in a little which makes the garment even smaller and at greater risk of further damage. I don't believe in doing a pointless job that will only boomerang - I'd prefer not to see a job again and know I've done it well.
There are people who do feel more secure in tight clothing - they simply need to use the right types of clothing that aren't going to be strained, or corsets that are designed for that purpose with properly fitting clothing over the top.
For those who are putting on weight (like myself), do something about it. There are styles of clothing that are very "slimming" without being tight. Just because a garment is stretchy doesn't mean it has to be stretched to its fullest extent - that will reduce its wearing life, not to mention that it will also expose each and every Michelin bulge on your body for all the world to see/judge/laugh/etc.
