    A perfect book for a perfect plus sized gal

    This book is very helpful and encouraging. Never once are you reprimanded for carrying a little extra. There is great factual information, as well as advice. I LOVED the whole section that had all the websites for where to find clothes to fit us! The whole book is VERY helpful
