Review: How To Never Look Fat Again by Charla Krupp

About the Book:
The new groundbreaking style-guide from bestseller author Charla Krupp on how to look 10 pounds lighter, 10 years younger and 10 times sexier every day, all year--in summer, winter, at the gym, even in a swimsuit!
You'll never get dressed the same way again once you discover:
*smart, easy ways to hide arm flap, a big bust, a muffin top, back fat, Buddha belly, a big booty, wide hips, thunder thighs, and heavy calves-and that's only half the book.
*which fabrics, colors, and styles make women look fat
*absolutely the best shades, shapes, and brilliant buys to make the pounds invisible
*clever solutions for special fashion situations--workout gear, evening wear, and even swimsuits!
*which products, fashions, and services you shouldn't waste your money on
*the top ten tips that will make you look thinner by tonight!
So, if you've ever put on a piece of clothing and asked "Does this make me look fat?" Finally, here is the book that will answer your question.
My Review:
I do have quite a bit to say about this one. There is some GREAT advice on dressing to look your best in this book. I'm not a fan of dieting books but this is something I would purchase. While healthier eating is promoted (along with exercise) it is NOT shoved down your throat. I liked that! This was more along the lines of being happy in your body, and making that body work for YOU!
I actually already follow a lot of the advice in the book because being a plus size woman I am aware of how I dress. But there were a lot of things I never considered that might be making me look heavier. My ONLY complaint is that I could have done without the celebrity examples, although that complaint is outweighed by the fact that there were examples of real women and fantastic advice.
This was a great book for me and I recommend it! I think it's worth the money if you choose to buy it.
