5.0 out of 5 stars I love my new look November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is all about giving yourself a makeover, and is written for the older, curvier woman. I bought it because I was stuck in a rut, and needed something to break out. I loved this, as it was well written, and divided in easy to digest tidbits. I was able to skip around and read the parts that interested me. It got me thinking about several features of my appearance I hadn't really thought about in years. I read the part about bra size with interest, and feel much better now after following the tips in here.

I love the makeup I have done after reading this book, so of course I love the book and recommend it wholeheartedly to any older curvier woman wanting to help herself, or a friend become more confident and attractive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wife looks great! November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My wife bought this book on our account, and I think it did her a world of good. I have always thought her attractive, but she hasn't felt that way lately. She read through this book, and it taught her about dressing for her body style and it taught her to really look at her body type, and choose styles that suited her. She was blown away by the makeup and hair style sections, as she had been doing things wrong according to the book. She feels lots better now, and I must say she looks even better than before.

I read through some of the book myself, and found it easy to follow and well laid out, addressing the main areas of style that a woman may have trouble with. I would say this would guide would suit any, as the title puts it, 40+ curvy woman, wanting to put a polish on her look.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book for those who live in the real world November 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is refreshing to see a book addressing the issues and concerns of those of us who are not in the image that Madison Avenue desires to promote. The quote in the book by Coco Chanel says it all, "Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions"

You can read the expertise throughout the book as just about every body shape is address here. It covers everything from your hair style down to your shoes. And this book is rooted in the real world with tips on those who are on a tight budget.

The tips and advice are easy to understand and apply and brought in a common sense style that makes it encouraging to get started on a makeover. The links, tips, and suggestions at the end of the book have proven to be helpful. I know my wife feels that she benefited from reading this book, and I get to benefit too by seeing a new her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of easy to follow tips November 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Makeovers For Women: 40, Curvy and Ready For A Change" is a concise and useful guide for any woman of plus-sizes proportions who is looking to improve her appearance and feel better about herself.

Book's structure is well-thought through. It begins with basics that any woman should learn in order to accentuate her strong points. For example, many women do not know what their correct body shape is, which is a very important aspect when it comes to choosing correct hairstyle and clothes.

Tips on makeup, hairstyles, dressing for different social or special occasions and even where to shop for bargains, are included.

Prose is that of a magazine article, fast and to the point, which is not a surprise, seeing that it was written by experts from Plus-Size-Magazine.

As a man, I love the fact that more and more publications are devoted to curvy women, helping them to look their very best.

Overall this is a great collection of easy to follow tips that, in my opinion, would benefit any curvy woman.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't anything special February 28, 2013

I was curious about what this author had to say, I'm not quite 40 but I am into taking care of myself. I deleted it after reading a few pages, it just didn't keep my interest I guess because most of the things in the book, I had already read in my different health and beauty magazines, but if the whole "beauty thing" is something that you are just getting into, this may be worth your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing January 28, 2013
By idocki1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really was excited to get this and get some great tips. And it had some, but NO PHOTOGRAPHS! How can a book about 'makeovers' have NO PHOTOS!???? That would have been such a help along with specifics. The book would have been so much better with specifics of WHAT to wear (tops with v-necks, monocromatic pants/tops, high heels) along with pictures showing the difference it can make in the total look. I wouldn't recommend this book because it lacked specifics & photos.

More About the Author

Founder of (USA), (UK) and (France).

What has a French guy, who is neither big, no tall, to do with Plus Size Fashion? Simple story: Blame it on Corinne, my dear full-figured sister! In 2007, she and I had an exchange about plus size fashion. Why was there no magazines dedicated to plus size fashion, while more than 40% of women in the France, in the US, and in the UK are considered "full-figured".

We went online and were amazed to see that there were not that many websites providing plus size fashion news at the time. So, we launched together our first site,, a site dedicated to French curvy women and big and tall men.
Then, in 2008, we launched, a site for British curvy women and big men.
In 2012, we launched, for our US readers, again for women and men.
Finally, in late 2012, we launched CURVISSIME, a high end plus size fashion magazine for the iPad. This monthly magazine has an English and a French edition.
