Choosing Flattening clothes
The main objective when you select any piece of clothes is to make sure that those clothes make you look your best.
If you are not sure when you choose an outfit try to answer the following questions:
Does this piece show my assets?
Does it show more fat than what I actually have?
Am I elongating my figure or do I look square or round?
Does it look like there is a woman under these clothes?
