While it's normal for your fashion sense to evolve with time, picking out clothes is a very personal experience, and being pressured to dress a certain way based on your age or social circle can hamper honest expression.

Navigating these conflicting and rapidly changing messages is bad enough without partners and friends confirming that your body has an expiration date. Which is to say, insinuating a woman is too "old" to wear something is untactful at best, and sexist and degrading at worst.

In a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, a husband asked if he was wrong for sewing his wife more modest clothing now that's she's gained weight and is "older" (he soon revealed she is only 27, which is very young).

AITA for changing the style of clothing I design for my wife to suit our age, fitness, and image?

OP shared that him and his wife have been together for seven years total (since she was 20 and he was 26). While his job isn't in fashion, OP has sewed his own clothes for 15 years, and has always made his wife garments as well.

I'm 33M and my wife is 27F. I've been making clothing for about 15 years. My actual profession has absolutely nothing to do with garment creation, but my whole family was super into fine arts and fashion so I learned how to sew with my sisters.
