The Science of Sexy

The Science of Sexy: Dress to Fit Your Unique Figure with the Style System that Works for Every Size and Shape by Bradley Bayou

I am not the most fashionable person in the world. Especially now that none of my cute clothes fit and there is a dress code at my job now for supervisors. I look like a schlump most days at work. But there is a fashionista in my heart and one day she will burst out and show herself. And when she does, I will be ready (unless I mistake her appearance for a heart attack and head to Grady Hospital instead of Bloomingdale’s) because of Mr. Bayou. Bradley Bayou has designed for a lot of women, but the only two that concern me are Oprah Winfrey and Queen Latifah. He knows how to dress all women. This is not a book that you read cover to cover. You identify your shape (triangle, hourglass, etc.) combine that with your height and weight and that determines which of the 48 “fitting rooms” you belong in. Easy, easy, easy. Each fitting room describes your “blessing” and your “curse”. Then Bayou lists what you can and cannot wear for your body type with clear descriptions and pictures. Personnally, I am in fitting room 11.4, Tall, Full, Hourglass. When I lose these 40-50 pounds (more on that later) I will move all my things into fitting room 10.4 Tall, Medium, Hourglass. As long as I keep Tall & Hourglass, I’m cool.
I’ve read all of the recent “how to dress” books and …sorry Tim Gunn, Trinny & Susannah….this is the best one by far! I made a copy of my fitting room pages and now have them hanging above my sewing machines.
