Dress for You

Create your own ‘Dream Look’ action plan to accentuate your favorite features and delight in dressing your unique body shape.

Confused about how to dress for your body shape?

That’s because there is no one-size-fits-all (quite literally!) solution. We’ve been told there are a few basic body shapes, and even been advised we need dress to “adjust” our body shape.

To test this concept, I surveyed hundreds of women to see if they thought that knowing their body shape would help them make better wardrobe choices and…

97% said YES!

But, 50% of the women who responded said they weren’t sure what their body shape was.

When you feel confused about your body shape or you’re told you have to choose clothing to ‘fix’ a part of your body, it’s easy to feel bewildered, discouraged or even shamed.

The problem is that dressing your “body shape” often implies there’s something wrong with your body the way it is and you need to fix it!

First of all…many women don’t fit into traditional body shapes or even if they do, they don’t feel confident about their choice. You’ve heard of triangles and rectangular body shapes, but what about spoons, bells, and figure 8’s? It’s enough to make your head swim!

Then the question remains…

Once you know your body shape –
what do you want to do with that information?

In many cases, we’ve been taught that there is an ‘ideal’ body shape and that we should dress to appear closer to that ‘ideal.’ But ideal body shape according to whom? (I’ll address that in the program.)

The good news is that you are in control of how you want to look and what body parts you want to emphasize.

In this 90-minute self-paced video, I teach you techniques to use in your wardrobe to:

  • Emphasize a chosen body part
  • Play with proportion and balance
  • Change the way certain body parts appear
  • Celebrate your unique shape

“Ginger has helped me find beautiful clothes that are uniquely me, that make me feel so good — all provided with wonderful, caring, encouraging advice and counsel. She has an amazing ability to bring out not only the beauty in her clients, but each person’s uniqueness as well. As a result, I look forward every day to wearing clothes I love.” – Sue Baust

Just curious…how do you feel about your body shape?

  • I love my body shape and it’s easy to get dressed.
  • So and so looks so much better in her clothes because her body shape is_______ (more curvy, straight, longer/shorter legs, her waist is…).
  • My body is too _______ (curvy, straight, busty, round, hippy, etc.)
    ______ body part is unattractive, and I feel I have to hide it, but I don’t know how.
  • I’m not sure how to dress to de-emphasize the size of my __________.
    ______I don’t know how to draw attention to _________ so people don’t notice _________.
  • It’s hard to find clothing for my _________ body shape.

The truth is, dressing your body shape
is only one part of your personal style.

Dressing to feel good in your body works hand-in-hand with who you are on the inside. I refer to it as reflecting your ‘inner beauty’…expressing that part of you at your essence that makes you special. Although we won’t specifically be addressing this in this program, it’s important to know that when you choose clothing that feels like you in your heart and soul, it’s YOUR natural form of self-expression.

Together, dressing your body shape and reflecting your inner beauty, create your personal style and let you shine with confidence. (Please note: dressing to express your inner beauty, although not addressed in this video, is covered in other programs. So don’t worry if you don’t have that specific information right now. We can get to that later.)

Today, we are specifically addressing body shapes and in this 90-minute self-paced video, you’ll learn…

  • How to identify your body shape (you might be surprised!)
  • How to get in tune with what parts of your body you want to emphasize
  • What are the body shape “rules” (and how to break them!)
  • How your wardrobe choices can change your perception of your body shape
  • Where many women get stuck – and how to move forward with confidence
  • How to create your personal action plan to explore how to direct focus using the 6 most valuable wardrobe tools to create balance and proportion:
    • Color
    • Necklines
    • Sleeves
    • Shoulders
    • Lines and Cuts
    • Prints

Let’s make dressing your body easier and more gratifying!

Once you know the tips and tools to direct focus and control emphasis for the look you desire, choosing your wardrobe becomes much easier.

So, go ahead and play with your shape and enjoy expressing different aspects of who you are!

“I can still feel the amazement and glow after putting on that first dress and looking in the mirror and realizing that it was me looking back, which was repeated as I tried on several other outfits.” – Diane Scribner

“What a difference this all makes–any worries about this or that body part just melted away. Someone today called me elegant. I wanted to say thank you and share this because this transformation has been a long time in the works and is all that I hoped it would be.” — Andrea
