BOOK REVIEW : HOW TO NEVER LOOK FAT AGAIN by CHARLA KRUPP : WHAT TO WEAR IF YOU'RE BIG BUSTED

Eat too much at Thanksgiving?  Expecting to gain ten pounds as you nibble at all those holiday parties?  Rather than wait for the diet to work, why not dress to appear slim?

One of my friends who's African American was looking at the cover of Oprah magazine recently and she said to me "This has to be Photoshopped." She meant Ophrahs' body on this particular magazine. The fact is that Oprah has the best dressers, stylists, makeup artists, and cosmeticians working with her on a daily basis, for her show and for photo shoots that land pictures on the cover of her own magazine so who, with all that, could not be coaxed into beauty?  We all know part of big story is her yoyo dieting...

This is a delightful and pragmatic book that has fashion strategies for all sorts of "fat problems" from your one end to the other. This book also has leads to good buys for products Carla personally buys. Here is one small example.  (I know a lot of women want to have larger breasts and many have surgery to have that look, but there are also a lot of women who are naturally big breasted who can't find clothes to fit!)

Things that make you look fat with a Big Bust

2) Tucking in tops.

3) Long necklaces that end below the bust.

4) Tightness across the chest.
 
5) Turtlenecks.

6) Excessive cleavage - pushed together breasts.

7) Tight T shirts.

8) strapless gowns, tops, and swimsuits.

9) Across the body messenger or shoulder bags.

10 Bulky Jackets and sweaters.



Some pluses : T-shirt smooth bras, wearing jackests and tops that reach the hipbone in lkenght
