48 - How To Never Look Fat Again: Over 1,000 Ways to Dress Thinner --WITHOUT DIETING!; Charla Krupp



















I really enjoyed Charla Krupp's 2009 book a lot: How Not To Look Old , so when I read she had a new book out, I was curious.  Okay, the title caught my eye, but seriously, "what woman does not was to look thinner, WITHOUT DIETING", I ask?  How To Never Look Fat Again is fantastic! 

Did you ever put on a piece of clothing and asked "Does this make me look fat"?  The truth is, if you thought it or, if you had to ask that question, you really already knew the answer --didn't you?  Do you want to learn how to de-fat your closet? Do you realize that there are a variety of different jean types based on your body type? Is your hair style making you look heavier?  These are just a very few of the helpful fashion-thin features in this book.

Beautifully illustrated with women of all shapes and sizes, readers will learn the (100) MOST fattening things you can wear. Winter and summer styles, casual and formal style, career and play styles: swimsuits and work out clothes --everything is covered in this fashion help book.  You will learn the right colors, styles, fabrics to make you look 10+lbs thinner without even dieting. What items and products NOT to waste your money on. But there is more, it is divided into trouble spots, you will learn about;

  • The BEST hair styles for a full face and / or a thick neck.  
  • How to dress for broad shoulders
  • Arm flap or bat wing trouble spots? No problem
  • Big Bust issues
  • Muffin Top minimizers
  • Back fat or Buddha Belly
  • Wide hips or thighs
  • Heavy calves or wide feet and ankles 
I really thought this book was terrific and it actually did help me to "de-fat" my closet and pack a huge bag for the Salvation Army. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (5/5 stars) - Library Book

  1. I have been de-cluttering my clothes and keeping only my favorite things to wear. Hopefully I have made the right choices.

  2. Oh I love books like this. I have a book titled What not to wear based on a BBC show of the same name. I am going to put this on on top of my wish list. Will that make my wish list look fat?

  4. Very interesting! I usually get bits and pieces of such information from the magazines (I'm nuts about reading them) and having them all in one place is cool. Thanks for the review!

  10. This book definitely has lots of great tips. My only problem was that some of them did not take into account age variations. Great ideas for 30-somethings, not always practical for the nearing-50 crowd.

    Still, I did get some good ideas that I can use.
