Asking a woman to strip off to her underwear or to don a leotard or to subject herself to being measured is a particularly unpleasant way to treat anyone.
And I should know!
Because the day it happened to me, I was so embarrassed that I swore right there and then that I would never do that to any of my clients.
So, for my Ladies’ Style Training course, I came up with a number of different ways to diagnose both body shape and scale without touching anyone.
You wouldn’t do that to a man!
Oh yes, I can just see you pinning a man to a wall and attempting to measure him to within an inch of his life…
A man would tell you exactly where to go if you tried that one!
So why would anyone think it’s ok to do that to a woman?

They are colours that everyone can wear, regardless of which tonal direction or season they are.
Beware – not everyone looks brilliant in them.
The point of an universal colour is that no-one looks absolutely hideous in them.
So they’re a great choice for an office uniform, or for bridesmaids’ outfits where you’ve got several seasons or tones to cater for.
These are the universal colour drapes that I personally use and recommend
The numbers shown are the numbers of the drapes you can order from our online catalogue of colour supplies.
||110 Soft White
(a cool, light taupe)
||I use the back of either
303 Antique Silver
or 304 Antique Gold
||153 Cool Taupe
(rather like a darkish moleskin)
|124 Dark Taupe
||52 Emerald Turquoise
||63 Teal Blue
||39 Warm Purple
||38 Muted Violet
(lighter than Warm Purple)
