For those of you that have recently set foot in an Auckland Westfield Mall, you will have been bombarded with posters announcing that Trinny & Susannah, the UK’s best-known Style Experts are here in Auckland this week. Starting Thursday, they will be in Westfield Malls talking to the crowds about different body-shapes and how to dress them. Now if you’ve seen them on TV, you’ll know that yes, they are a bit brash, but they do know their stuff. If you are near one of the malls, go along and check them out.
The message they are here to spread is the same one that I have been talking to you about for a while now… “It’s not about size. It’s about Shape”. When I am choosing clothing for someone, the most important thing to take into consideration is that it’s not actually about the size of the person, it’s about their body-shape. That is far more important when dressing to look your best.
I think so many women & men here and around the western world have become so pre-occupied with size. For some, being a size 14, instead of a 12 is the end of the world. Whereas, for others, the frustration of being a size 24, can lead them to hide behind shapeless clothing, and be ashamed of how they look. We’ve seen this in the media, with the debate over too-skinny models, and magazines splashed with photographs of a celebrity that has cellulite… gasp!
Many women that I work with won’t even try on a garment in a bigger size than their normal, even if it will fit and flatter them better, because of this mental block about clothing size.
It’s not about size. It’s about shape!!
Once you know what your body shape is, it means you can truly dress to make the most of the body that God has given you. You will know how to shift attention away from your figure challenges, and how to draw attention to your best features. It’s all about looking good and feeling great. It’s about feeling confident again, and not letting low self-esteem and body image stop you from living your life.
Stand back and take a look at yourself in the mirror. Don’t just stare at your big bottom, or wobbly thighs, or flabby tummy. Look at your entire shape. What do you like about yourself? Make a list of your positive features. You just need to learn how to dress yourself to look more balanced, top & bottom. It’s worth making the effort. Who wouldn’t want to feel more confident and comfortable with how they look?
