Have you ever wondered why something that looked so fabulous on someone else makes you feel like you’re looking in a fun house mirror when you try it on? It’s enough to make you cry! But have you given much thought to the notion that it’s the garment and not you after all? Your favorite pair of jeans or LBD could be to blame, the cut could be all wrong. Your wardrobe is capable of complete fashion sabotage, are you allowing it?
Relax, there are a few ways to fix this–actually, over 1,000! Does that make things seem a little better? If you need more fitting solutions on the double, you might want to check out How To Never Look Fat Again. Style and beauty expert, Charla Krupp makes it easy in her new guide to dressing thinner. After pouring over this book, I realized there is a shocking amount of clothing I own that isn’t doing my full-figure any favors at all! I discovered how just a few tweaks can make me look thinner and more polished with her no-nonsense advice and photographic evidence that I’ve been breaking the rules through her perfect examples of “high fat” looks versus “low fat” fashion. I feel like this book has also seriously inspired me to reinvent my style without leaving me hanging! You know how some stylists shed some light on their secrets but then they leave you to wander off on your own, only to commit the same crimes? Krupp leads you to water and makes you drink by sharing not only what you should be looking for, but where to look for it. This is a priceless personal reference guide to flattering fashion for every size!
For even more instant gratification, have you considered investing in a nice compression garment? If you’re feeling a little snug in your spring wardrobe or just need to smooth things over–I really like the new Long Leg Shaper from the Slimpressions Bottom Line collection, it doesn’t make me feel like I’m suffocating or I’m being pinched. More light weight than my previous lower-body control garment (and less expensive), it didn’t roll. Fighting muffin top and more shapely thighs at the same time doesn’t have to be a losing battle!
