I just watched a very nice talk on body proportions and styling by Orly Shay from Tel Aviv. She actually created her own software called Mipso to help people choose proper glasses for their face and proper clothing to optimize their figure.
“Shay, a styling expert, will prove on the TEDxTelAviv stage that fashion and design is not subjective and not art – it’s completely math and exact science.”
One example she gave was about the length of her dress. It was just below the knee with a fitted waistline. She said that choosing a dress that length hides where her legs begin from and lets your mind imagine that she has very long legs. We can also see that she is wearing slimming black sheer tights and a pair of nice high heels.
It’s just our nature, golden ratio is appealing to the eye and we react positively to whatever our eye finds visually appealing. Orly says that choosing the right clothing can help to dress for success. If you want, you can watch her entire video here – Orly Shay, TED Talk, Tel Aviv.
Nobody in the world has the same body combination, let’s embrace our uniqueness, not even twins. Only one is yours! Bring it out and make it count.
