I wore very little color when I was heavier, foolishly thinking a darker color would hide my bulk, all it did was make me look like a blob in photos and colored me even more of a wallflower. Even after I shed some excess poundage, I didn't always wear bright colors. Well, no more hiding! If you want to be cautious, try a cheery scarf or a cute hat before venturing out in a bright trench and a colorful dress. What have you got to lose?
