Book Report. “How Not to Look Fat” by Danica Lo. Second City Style Fashion Blog

August 4, 2006 • Fashion


This book is a must read whether you’re a size 6 or 16.  Have you ever thought that your existing wardrobe isn’t doing anything for your figure? Who hasn’t had a “fat” day (or five)?

A former plus-size model, Danica Lo’s popular series of "How Not to
Look Fat" columns appeared in the New York Post. Irreverent and honest,
How Not to Look Fat offers cutting-edge tips on maximizing your slimming potential,
from banishing back fat, finding flattering gym clothes to getting
the right haircut and posing for the camera.

One Amazon reviewer wrote: “She doesn’t try to preach to you about losing weight; she tells you how
to work with what you’ve got and choose the look that works best for
you and your body. Her advice is smart and direct and honest; I laughed
out loud and felt like I knew Danica Lo when I was reading it!"

I was sold and bought it immediately. Even my size 6 mother read it and wanted a copy. Learning how to pose for pictures so I don’t look 20 lbs heavier than I am, was worth it alone! Chin up. Amazon
