Yes, what you are thinking is correct, if your sizes changes and your clothes no longer fit (inside a reasonable one-year time frame) any garments listed as participating in the 'Liberty Fit' program will be able to exchange for new clothes. Used clothes for new clothes for free!
What happens to returned clothing items? Do they go to landfill?
Your gentle worn clothes will earn themselves a second life. Gently worn clothes will be donated to unemployed homeless women who are seeking employment.

My outfit today is perfect for the occasion, and it is also mine and it feels good to call it mine." Dress for Success and First Step via Fit Liberty Program.
