Can you lovely ladies do a Saturday night Gok-style makeover on me online??!
Right, for reasons I won't bore you with, I want to get a bit glam and sexy.
I've never been a very sexy gal (used to work in a very male dominated field and wanted to hide that side of things) and want to feel better about myself and look HOT but not muttony.
In the absence of a certain Mr Wan to make me look good naked (and clothed), I'd love it if you lot could help me out.
I've namechanged for this btw.
OK here's some key info: I'm a short arse at 5ft2, large of buttocks, small of boobs (not a great combination), legs of a 60 year old cart horse. Size 10ish on top 12 ish on bum. Slight pot belly thanks to ds.
Am I selling myself here?
Face looks youngish for my age (soon to be 38), dark long hair just highlighted so no probs there. Wear specs and am not keen on contacts.
I do look quite reasonable most of the time BUT just not sexy. I wear jeans, tunics, knee boots etc a lot at the moment. I don't feel sexy at all. Help! How can I get sexy but still look stylish and practical.
You're right. You need to feel confident about yourself. In my work, an exercise that I get people to do is make a list of 5 things that they like about themselves. We all need to remind ourselves of our positives from time to time
well from your measurements lady, you aren't big of bum at all! erm what about a dress with your knee boots- maybe empire line to skim over stomach area that finishes on the knee? agree with the statement jewellery and good underwear.
I wouldn't wear empire line if you have a bit of a tum but not actually fat. I thought this was flattering, looked fine when I was a 10 but as a 12 with a post pregnancy pot belly I look, well, pregnant! You sound a simialr shape to me but I'm a bit taller, what are your shoulders like?
Like the oasis one best - seems a bit Mad Men look. Quite like Phase Eight one and the last one too. Not so keen on the other one. So given you don't know me that's pretty darn impressive for suggestions.
I like plain non fussy stuff really but need to be more feminine / sexy. I buy a lot in Gap at the moment.
Seven - I had to confess to him this morning!! I really love that dress and just hope it fits, note to self, stop scoffing dd's chocolate and all the left over mince pies. I have a very good friends 40th coming up soon and I want to wear it to that night out. I mean HOW could anyone resist that for £29!!!
Hi, i need help pls! I am 48 and i steel don't know what to wear. I am size 14 on top but small breast(34 b), 8 ish on bum. What i can wear to feel like a women not like a men. What underwear do you suggestto help to enlarge my hips? Thanks a lot
