Whether you shop, sew or mail order your wardrobe, the secrets to selecting enhancing styles for your figure are in FLATTER YOUR FIGURE. The fully illustrated 6″ x 9″ book makes figure and style analysis fun and easy for women of all ages, sizes and shapes.

“My system focuses on how a woman looks in her clothes, not pounds or inches,” states Larkey. “Embarrassing measurements are totally eliminated. All you need are two straight sticks, a string, a full length mirror and a friend to objectively see and accurately evaluate your figure.”

FLATTER YOUR FIGURE cross-references 19 figure problems to over 200 style illustrations including tops, jackets, pants, and even swimwear. It takes only 30 minutes to personalize this book and discover which styles will accentuate your assets and camouflage your figure challenges.


“ . . . I just finished your book and found it one of the most informative, helpful books I have ever read.” Judy Henry, Texas

“ . . . FLATTER YOUR FIGURE left me with a much more realistic and far less negative image of my body than I ever had!!” Melanie Jane Hughes, Tennessee

Note from Jan: The concepts and clothing guidelines in FLATTER YOUR FIGURE are timeless. When I was deciding which styles to illustrate in FYF, I almost didn’t include a peplum top. Thank goodness I did because by the time the book rolled off the presses, everyone was wearing peplum styles. Since then, they have disappeared from sight–but just wait, they’ll show up again. When they do, just look in your FYF book to see if a peplum is a PLUS + or MINUS – for your figure.

FLATTER YOUR FIGURE (published by Simon & Schuster, 1991) is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites.
