Amazon Review

Susannah Constantine and Trinny Woodhall have regularly doled out their upper-crust fashion advice via the pages of Saturday's Daily Telegraph, establishing themselves as style experts on their mission to show that how ever tall or short, large or small you may be there are ways to look great all the time.

In Ready2Dress Susannah and Trinny call on four very different women who between them represent just about everything we either love or hate about our bodies. By assessing their individual body shapes and dishing out the odd tip on make-up, hair and the essential items that should provide the basics for every self-respecting fashion victim, the intrepid duo swing into action to prove that anyone--yes, really, anyone--can look fabulous.

Complete with a directory of "must-have" addresses, Ready2Dress gets up close and personal with the bits of our bodies we just love to hate and drags us kicking and screaming through a zesty and irreverent shopping spree that covers every clothing nightmare from bum-too-big to packing for a business trip.

Definitely one for the girls, Ready to Dress is a light and fluffy tour through the heart of the dull and dingy wardrobe--it certainly isn't brain surgery but, hey, it was never supposed to be. --Susan Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate self help book 24 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Common sense laid on a plate. Straightforward advice given to you in a very honest, sometimes cheeky way. This book contains the fundamentals which help you make the most of your assets.
Particularly loved the section about clearing out, organising and looking after your wardrobe. This has been very rewarding - I now feel fully detoxed and it didn't cost me a penny.
This book would be great for any woman interested in having a wardrobe that is right for her every time.

I got this as I'm having the nightmare of three friends weddings to go to in the same month (same crowd etc) but I'm a bit strapped for cash. The book has a great directory at the back of services-which amazingly includes designer second hand shops and also a list of haberdashery shops. This inspired me to customise a new wool jumper with lace-voila it's Whistles! It's a very funny read-my Nan even read it because she is stuck in the 80's time warp of T-shirts and leggings and peach lipstick, (though I'm not sure what she thought about the bit where it says boxer short knickers ride up your *****!)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous witty and practical read 21 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I really recommend this book to all but the most composed style guru. There is definitely something in here for everyone and the authors approach the subject with humour and humility. The makeovers are amazing - they give us all hope!! The book is down-to-earth and practical and allows plenty of scope for individual style and taste. The 'emphasise your good points, play down your bad points' approach is well illustrated through photos and descriptions of various friends of the authors, although it will no doubt be necessary for most to mix and match from the advice, as it is unlikely that we will be the same shape in all areas as those in the book. Susannah and Trinny's, almost tongue in cheek, comments are a joy to read and the book is also colourful and visually interesting. All in all - highly recommended!

I have been a fan of S and T since my trip to London a couple of years ago. They are probably the wittiest and most genuine pair in the land of self help. I found this book to be incredibly useful and have shared it with my friends, all of whom laughed as hard as I had. S and T point out the obvious (all of which we never notice, for some reason) and give us practical advice through years of experience and "dedicated spending". Every woman will get something out of this book, even if you look like the "combined audience of the Oprah Winfrey Show". A brilliant book! Never again will I leave my house wearing the wrong underwear, with "four cheeks instead of two"!

Format:Paperback
Honest advice on what doesn't look good and why. Not patronising, full of little tips and usefull remarks. If you've ever wondered what really suits you, or why things looked better when you tried them in the store, but not so good when you took them home: GET IT!

Full of top tips to suit your shape and size - resoundingly loud and clear message that style on a budget CAN be achieved. It's just about being aware of the pitfalls.
