The Sarong Kebaya

Did you know that each Sarong Kebaya is tailor made personally for each girl?

I just read the same article - I think nowadays it semi-tailored, like men suits. I have seen some FAs Kebaya's less fitting ....but could be due to change in body size

From what I was told by en ex-SQ cabin crew, they weren't allowed to get too big for the sarong kebaya for a certain length of time (maybe it was for their initial contract). The cost of the individual fitting might explain it.
