I received a copy of the book a few days ago. I was wondering what people here would think about it.

Kudos for using real plus-size models. But everything else was disappointing. All the book shows is that any outfit looks better if you smile than if you frown. If the expressions were reversed, many of the "wrong" outfits would suddenly look "right" and vice versa. The tone felt a little condescending too, at least to me.

PS - I'd like to see a book that doesn't call a curve a "problem". Seriously.
