fitted to flatter and flowy where it can be. My favorite shirt fits tightly against my chest and flows and the bottom so its light and feminine with out looking of feeling uncomforatble

I'm a small lady with a nice shape so, prefer fitted clothing...it's just more becoming on me. Also, I look lost in flowing unfitted clothing.

I usually wear fitted, but I love flowy too...but not TOO flowy, or else I'll look pregnant

Fitted. I'm not tall and reed thin, so flowy = sloppy.

fitted... especially the herve leger look, but only if you have the body!! But still even for a bigger frame fitted streamlines the body and flowy makes a plus size body look frumpy and plus size is sexy! so Fitted show it off!

I love the flowy look but I look better in fitted (but not tight!) clothes. Being "full-figured", most flowy things just make me look bigger.

I'm too curvy for flowy. When I wear flowy stuff I look pregnant, so fitted is better for me. My sister however can pull off flowy very well.

I always usually choose fitted. I am not going to have this body forever so I am going to do as my mom says; flaunt what you got ;)

I usually wear skinny jeans and a flowy top to not look too 'skinny' all over. Or a fitted top and looser pants. I'm really athletic but also really skinny and all the people at my office make comments asking if I ever eat if I wear something fitted all over. It's annoying.

depends - but mainly fitted... I workout like a maniac and eat healthy to show off those curves! ;)

For jeans, I prefer a fitted, skinny look. But I love flowy for dresses and skirts. As far as shirts go, a fitted top and flowy bottom (like a babydoll style) is always cute.

A lot of the time it feels like "flowy" is just plain lazy on the designers/manufacturers part. They try to convince everyone that it's "the look" so that they can get away with selling dresses that are basically shapeless sacks at a premium price.As someone with some experience with sewing I can say that it's far easier to sew a sack (a few straight lines and you're done! A monkey could do it!) than it is to sew a garment that fits around all those womanly curves (so much cutting and measuring and fitting to get those curves just right - very difficult and takes much patience and skills).

I like both, sorry I can't decide. A lot of items look better fitted but sometimes a little flowy top can look cute too.
