Does This Make Me Look Fat?

The Definitive Rules for Dressing Thin for Every Height, Size, and Shape

By Leah Feldon

Villard Books, Paperback, 9780812967654, 176pp.

Publication Date: December 24, 2002

With a rousing "we're all in this together" attitude, Leah Feldon proves that a well-chosen wardrobe can render any figure fabulous. "All we have to do," writes Feldon, "is choose the right clothes--clothes that camouflage any real or imagined figure flaws rather than highlighting them--and learn how to do it with ultimate style and confidence." Take five pounds off your look with a new hemline; disguise a bit of bulge with a cleverly designed blouse; highlight your best assets with the perfect accessories. The key to "camouflage chic" is dressing to suit your body type, comfort level, and lifestyle--all while maximizing your own personal flair.

Instead of spending another moment agonizing in front of the closet, you'll learn how to:
* distinguish between "yes" and "no" colors
* lose the tummy without the tuck
* perk up your basic black
* create optical illusions for a long, lean look
* conquer the dreaded bathing-suit challenge
* follow timeless tenets of good taste

Packed with empowering, easy-to-implement tips, fun illustrations, and celebrity style secrets, Does This Make Me Look Fat? provides all the information you'll need to create a slimmer, more stylish, and better-proportioned look (and to help your man do it, too ).
