Clothing now available in “Non-Fat”
I don’t really know what CNN’s thoughts were when they published this article. As though it is somehow a REVOLUTIONARY concept to dress your body so you look less fat. It is as if they have not watched any other TV channel in the last 10 years.
Oh I see, Charla Krupp has new book out called “Never Look Fat Again” Because ladies, we all know, fat is the worst possible thing you can look.
And if you, like me are thinking “But… what if I AM Fat” do not despair, this CNN article has a helpful bit of advice for us:
But there is hope. She says even women size 16 or 18 can look their best if they make the right choices. Those begin with what’s under the outfits.
That’s right ladies, as long as we just “make the right choices” for instance choosing supportive shape wear “To smooth out the dreaded back fat that can ruin your appearance” or Wear long billowing sleeves to “hide fatty arms”.
I don’t generally have a problem with fashion books. I’m not really into fashion, but some ladies could use some helpful tips. (Clinton, Stacey, please call my Mom… PLEASE.)
But this book isn’t selling itself as a book to help you look better, ito help you put your best foot forward, it is a book designed to help you avoid the dreaded F-A-T.
What I find particularly horrifying is the open acknowledgement that everbody has some fat. (from the book’s website)
The truth is, even if you do lose weight, and even if you commit yourself to serious exercise, you’re probably still going to have some flab. Even thin women may have hanging skin on their upper arms, tummy and tush.
SO MAKE SURE YOU HIDE IT LADIES! We wouldn’t want our bodies to look like they might actually be FLAWED.
How many ways are there to potentially look fat, well a lot, also from the website:
The book is organized by issue, such as big bust, “muffin top + back fat,” and “Buddha belly.” While some of the topics may seem wacky at first (“Are your brows making you look fat?” and “Hiding fat with your bag”),
That’s right, thought you just wanted to make sure your skirt fit properly and was flattering, NO NO, you MUST make sure your eyebrows are shaped just so so you don’t look like a fat fat fatty. Oh, And your bag better be big enough to hide that ass girl, or you’re going to look like you just don’t care.
Y’know maybe she has some great tips for dressing your body and looking fabulous. But I can’t help feel like all this book does is plays on what society has taught every woman to fear, fat. The worst possible thing you could possibly be. (Oh except for the premise of her other book “How not to look Old.” BLECH)
