Moreover, the fasteners in question are placed in the center of the article of clothing in question with multiple horizontal fasteners and a single vertical fastener. Although the prior arts mentioned above tries to overcome the issues of an all uniform sized apparel clothing, none of the prior arts discloses the: attachments and specification of the current one size fits all invention.
