As they say, clothes make the man. Well, Charla Krupp shows us how clothes can remake the woman. HOW TO NEVER LOOK FAT AGAIN not only shows us with pages of color photos but also tells how, what, and why - for instance, how a petite can look extra glam in supple cowls and v-neck sleeveless tops and why she shouldn't wear scrunch-down turtles or boxy crews. And, what a woman after forty can do about the "flappies" - that unattractive loose skin underneath our arms.

Is there a woman on planet Earth who doesn't think she has a figure flaw? Did I say "a"? Most of us think we have several. Charla has answers, whether it's that arm flap, a large bust, hefty hips and thighs, heavy calves, etc. My favorite suggestions are for those with a Buddha Belly - also known as "jelly belly, pot belly, girly gut, and a number of other unattractive monikers. Solution: "Switch all your underwear to shapewear, don't make your waist the center of attention, avoid wide belts, short tops, etc.

Not only does Charla offer suggestions but also includes where to buy (websites, too) and the price of the items she mentions. (She's very high on Spanx and waist-high bike shorts, saying "...thrashing around getting these on is not a pretty sight, but the ability to lose ten pounds in one minute is well worth the struggle."

Just as in her super popular How Not To Look Old Charla's latest is chock full of practical suggestions - did you know that Norma Kamali has a very price accessible line of clothing at Walmart?

This is one book you'll refer to again and again.

Best for one flaw

This book has some very good information but is best for those with one area they want to camouflage. What it doesn't do well is give advice to those who are heavy all over and have more than one area they are trying to make look slimmer.

    Don't waste your time!

    This book must have been written with the following person in mind: someone with no fashion knowledge or sense. The tips should be obvious to anyone who has worn clothing or looks at others in clothing. They were just too general. Every woman knows not to wear skinny jeans without a top to cover her bum if she has wide hips. Or, not to wear ankle strap shoes if she has large ankles or calves. Everyone should wear shapewear. Those were the types of tips in every chapter. The ONLY part I found of any interest were the "what to buy" sections at the end of the chapters. Bras and jeans were the best, in my opinion. So, thumb through the book first, but I say just use common sense and don't waste your money on this book!

    I recommend Garfield. He has a better take on vanity and self-esteem.
