Body shapes

I look like a turnip

This week I bought some turnips – is that a mind shattering development in the world of fashion – no not really. I was curious to see exactly what a customer meant when she looked at herself in an outfit and said: ‘I look like a turnip’. I smile every time I think of her comment that day. So examining the shape of the turnips – I understand what she meant. As she stood in front of the mirror in a lovely coloured pleated two piece her waistline just seemed to bulge – it was not so much her body, but the effect of a two piece with a pretty curly edge on the hem of the top that gave a look of bulk in the middle of the whole outfit. She then tried on a simple column of a dress and immediately she stood tall and slim. The combination of how she perceived herself and the shape of the garment caused a certain dropping of the spirits and drooping of the body.
