1. Go with your gut. You know how you feel when you first looked in the mirror. Your body language gives away a lot too. Are you hunching or standing tall?
3. Don't be talked into something by friends, family or sales assistants. If you do, it will probably stay hidden in the back of the wardrobe. I could tell you about some doozies I have been talked into.
4. Stick with your size. You are shopping for something to wear now, not in your dreams. It won't motivate you to lose weight or gain weight and it's going to sit in your wardrobe making you feel bad about yourself. Hunt down the clothes that make you feel good - TODAY
5. Don't believe every compliment given by a sales assistant. I'm sure most of them are true but they are also trying to make a sale.
