Editorial Reviews


They say that beauty is only skin-deep, but let's face it: Most of us care what we look like on the outside. For women, that's an understatement. Turning beauty inside out Author tells women to ignore the latest trends and play up their personalities. Ever wish you could bring your therapist into the dressing room? Or at least learn how to have a healthier relationship with your mirror? The first step is to stop letting outside voices distract you from expressing your own true beauty, says Carol Tuttle, a Utah psychotherapist and the author of a new book that aims to turn long-standing beauty myths on their head, and to rescue fashion victims who repeatedly fall prey to the latest trends. Seven years ago, I started to take back my beauty, Tuttle, 52, writes in the self-published Dressing Your Truth: Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile (US$19.95). For most of her life, the wife and mother of five disliked her body and her; aged and masculine; features, and spent years trying to improve what she thought was originally flawed. By age 13, she so hated how she looked, she scribbled over her picture in the school yearbook. Mine is a typical example of a female journey; says Tuttle in a phone interview. We don't ever outgrow that original trauma that all women go through to varying degrees. The fashion world is based on a system of styles and trends. And when they don't personify your type of beauty, the default for women is to think it's their body and appearance that's at fault. The current system teaches us how to put on beauty, she says, not how to bring out our own. Just because a woman looks stylish doesn't mean she's dressing her truth. One way to tell the difference is to notice whether you see the clothing, jewelry and makeup first, and then the woman. If she's dressing her truth, her body looks like a natural extension of her true self, Tuttle says. After years of doing therapy and discovering how intimately connected a woman's sense of fashion -- or lack thereof -- and her perceptions of body image and physical appearance are to her sense of self, Tuttle developed a beauty profiling system to tailor a woman's wardrobe to her personality type. It divides women into four basic types: Type 1, bright and animated; Type 2, subtle/soft; Type 3, rich/dynamic; and Type 4, bold/striking. Tuttle also points out that most current clothing systems only emphasize one thing -- colour. But there are four other elements in a garment -- design line, texture, fabrication and pattern -- than can either add to our natural beauty or conflict with it. Sorry to break the news, but that perfect little black dress is a myth. In fact, Tuttle says wearing black can actually make a woman look heavier and older. No movement, no expression, just stillness, and on most women, it's deadly. (Only Type 4s can really pull it off. For the other types, she recommends various shades of brown.) Apparently even the rich and famous make the mistake of following trends instead of choosing clothes that look good on them and suit their personality. Take Michelle Obama. Although she has become a fixture in fashion magazines, Tuttle says the American first lady (a Type 3) is not dressing her truth. They dress her as a Type 4, and that can make a Type 3 appear harsh and overly intense. Quite often, she's also shown in that mommy look because that's such an important part of who she is, but it doesn't honour her beauty either. Despite all the plastic surgery, Joan Rivers (Type 3), on the other hand, makes a bold and edgy fashion statement that matches her personality. Tuttle's book will help readers discover their own beauty profile. To learn how to Dress Your Truth, with help from visual images and videos, there's also an online course at dressing your truth dot com. --Winnipeg Free Press - July 20, 2010

I paid the $39 at the dressingyourtruth website for which I was able to watch online videos and read the book "Dressing your Truth". But all the videos and book do is point you in the direction of what your clothing "type" may be. In order to actually learn how to dress for your type (color, fabric, line, etc.) you are directed to go online and buy Carol Tuttle's $297 course! In other words, I paid $39 and all I got was an advertisement for another course! I feel ripped off.

I bought the whole program because my sweet daughter-in-law said she was brought to tears to feel so validated when she discovered her "type." For myself, was a little tepid and skeptical, but thought I might be able to get a few pointers. It took me a little time to figure out which Type I was, but when I did, I felt a new freedom I did not know was in me. Since discovering (with their insightful direction) my Type 1-ness, I remember the day as a child that I went from being a happy, carefree Type 1 into a serious Type 2 personality. My family didn't have a lot of money and sometimes as I was walking the little path to the corner grocery store (quite a long time since they've had these : ) I watched the clouds. I loved to look at the clouds and see them morph into animals and other figures. But one day I found a fortune (a nickel) on the path and I as I deliberated over the hard question of whether to look at the clouds I loved or look at the path for money, the tight financial situation of my family won out and I left the clouds behind and looked on the path from then on. How interesting that after 50 years, that very day and incident would come to me. In addition to this, I have felt a new freedom to be fun that my husband is thrilled over : ) I read that this program changed lives, but I thought it was just talk until this happened to ME. I feel as light as a feather--thank you so much!!

Wow! Really disappointing book. The title is misleading... book does not teach the reader how to "dress your truth". It seems to be just a ploy to get you to the website to pay for additional online courses.

(SHOCKING update: DYT book "word portraits" PLAGIARIZED Callaway book "WORD PORTRAITS" (more than half of words exact match)! Examples in my review thereThe Color Connection: From a Retailer's Perspective; "word portraits" in "Dressing Your Truth" book & "It's Just My Nature" are almost the same.) I couldn't figure out why "Dressing Your Truth" was so similar to Youtube videos by John Kitchener PSC until I noticed Carol Tuttle wrote in "It's Just My Nature" about using notes from "Personal Style Consulting." (John Kitchener PSC.) She also wrote that she was originally typed by Taylore B. Sinclaire in Illuminessence. (Both are Caygill-linked.) She wrote she didn't know the origins, so I started looking...

I found "It's Just My Nature" & "Dressing Your Truth" too similar to previously published books---even WORDS, PHRASES, SENTENCES, & PARAGRAPHS.

Extremely similar books to "Dressing Your Truth" & "It's Just My Nature" are by:

SUZANNE CAYGILL (Color: The Essence of You) & HER STUDENTS:
Angela Wright (The Beginner's Guide to Colour Psychology) &
Jane Segerstrom (Jane Segerstrom's Look Like Yourself and Love It; &

"Dressing your truth", unfortunately is a bit disappointing when you have already read her other book, "It's just my nature", which deals with the four different energy types. In "Dressing your truth", you find the same content, just with some added information. If you want to know what energy type you are, I would recommend reading "dressing your truth" because of the added information. But her latest book doesn't tell you anything about what colours, textures, hairstyles, make-up, etc you should be looking out for to dress according to your energy type. If you want to know this, you have to go to her website and sign up for her course.

I wish I had read these reviews before I bought this book on the website. The entire book is about discerning your type, with no information on dressing your type. So you see, the title is totally misleading. It's like you paid $40 to get your colors done, and then they were going to charge you $300 to tell you what those colors were. Now I am going to have to spend my time trying to get my money back.

My wife bought this book because the of the advertising on Carol's site. She was led to believe that this book might help her in choosing fashion and hair styles.

Anyway, I went through the book with her, and we both felt like it was just advertising for Carols other products, like her "Manifesting More Money" course, other books, and most prominently her "Dressing your Truth" $300 course.

I mean, come on,the title of the book is "Dressing your Truth: Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile." The book does not include much information at all on choosing clothes. It does have a couple of tips on what to avoid depending on what "type" of woman you are, but no well defined fabric, colors or styles for each type. So there goes the "Dressing your Truth" portion of the title. As to the "Discover your..." portion of the title, well the only chapter that makes an attempt at helping someone see what "type" they are is 9 pages long. The rest is descriptions of the types, advertising, and fluff.

I felt like the book did not fulfill on its promise at all. It was a total bait and switch, preying on women's insecurities. And my wife feels cheated out of $40 (she bought it online like many of the other reviewers).
