Description

Susan Moses, the go-to celebrity stylist for curvy women both on and off the red carpet presents the first inspirational, confidence-building, prescriptive style guide for plus-size women who want to dress fashionably and look their beautiful best.

Nearly two-thirds of American women are plus-size—and they care just as much about fashion and beauty as their thinner counterparts. They’re tired of being ignored by the industry and shopping for styles wedged into the far reaches of department stores. Now, Susan Moses, a plus-size woman with a dynamic personality and an in-demand stylist whose clientele includes Hollywood and music industry celebrities, addresses this audience’s needs with this essential handbook to help them look fabulous.

The Art of Dressing Curves gives plus-size women the confidence and know-how to dress beautifully for their particular body shape. Gorgeously designed, filled with high-fashion photography, and written in Susan’s down-to earth, accessible, and enthusiastic voice, The Art of Dressing Curves tells the story of her journey to self-acceptance and outlines her formula for seamless dressing that has helped some of the most iconic curvy women in music, film, and fashion look dazzling in the spotlight.

From foundation garments to wardrobe essentials to hair and makeup, Susan dispenses advice on every aspect of dressing well for one’s shape, size, and personality, insight supplemented by a wealth of elegant editorial photographs, anecdotes, tips, and sidebars, as well as lists of specialty retailers, designers, and websites that cater to plus-size.
