“Tight”: use in context explanation
The woman needed to go shopping to boost her mood. She wants to buy a new, pink dress. She chooses a beautiful dress and goes to the changing room to try it on. A shop assistant is helping her put it on. She stands behind the woman, grabs the black laces, which are part of the dress and she pulls them very tight. They both realise that the dress is too small for her and she can’t breathe because it’s so tight around her waist. However, the shop assistant wants to sell it so she tells her customer that the dress looks great, perfect on her. The woman is not stupid, though. She’s not going to buy the dress.
