do you always need a patent?

Does anyone have a product they sell that they have patented or chose NOT to patent?

I have a really good idea but the patent process is expensive not to mention a PITA. I don't want to just drop my idea due to red tape or fear that someone will take my idea and make lots of money because they patent it

the only thing to really protect you is a patent. However, in the fashion industry, patents aren't really done, so it's important to look into how the process works in the industry you intend to work in.

The beginning of the patent process is investigating if anyone has ever made and/or patented what you want to make. That can be done on your own, google makes it much easier =)
