It has changed the way I shop. I now walk straight passed all the gorgeous but wrong for me clothes - no matter how fab! I look for shape first, fabric and colour next. My "what was I thinking" shopping mistakes have disappeared and I'm now feeling a lot better about my body. Not bad for one book!
My biggest problem is that I don't know what the difference is between big thighs and chuncky thighs or when are boobs average and when are they big. I miss criteria in this book.
I also found some inconsistencies. In some chapters they discuss what swimsuit is best or what necklace or earings, but in others they just skip it.
Overall I liked this book, I think every woman should read it. Only don't expect to find an answer for all your problems. If you read all the chapters you could learn to understand how to make a better choise when you are shopping. It will take some time and effort to read the book and to remember their advice. I think it is worth it to try and learn from this book, because it opens your eyes.
Body shape is crucial to finding clothes that flatter, as they determine the fabrics and styles that will move with you and not add on pounds. I think that S&T, though I am a fan, have moved away from the traditional image shapes such as pear and apple and come up with many more, probably unnecessarily. You really only need to understand where the curves or straight lines of your silhoutte appear and dress them accordingly. So a straight hipped woman with no bum would look great in a straight skirt in a stiff fabric. Curves need drape to skim. It's really quite simple. It was good to see proportions addressed and the photo's were also good. Is it the best book on the subject - not really - but it's a start for someone who isn't able to see a professional. What would have improved it is if other pieces of the image jigsaw were included such as personality and style preference, as this is why many make over programmes fail in the long term.
