The Space of the Waist™
Tuesday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
The show is about the personal empowerment and confidence that dressing for your body shape by your waist length will provide. These tools are 30 years in the discovery.
The Space of the Waist is that space between the bottom of your bustline or bra band down to the place where your waist nips in the most. That SPACE determines your individual silhouettes that look the most flattering on you.
Guests may be invited on to the show to discuss design and silhouettes/styles for body shapes and waist lengths. Guests may include designers, patternmakers, retailers, factory owners, alterations experts and merchandise managers. Also, women with various and long or short waists are invited to discuss their real-life shopping problems in finding clothes that flatter them.
Accessory designers will give proportion tips for body shapes. Seasonal fashion trends and colors will also be discussed and tweaked for given body shapes and waist lengths.

Melody has an extensive background in buying, merchandising, product development and fashion direction of women’s clothing. Melody has hands on experience in short and long waists and body shapes for women of regular, petite, and tall heights.
The passion Melody expresses comes from her need to share her accumulated knowledge with all women. The program, as her books of body shapes by waist length, provide a list of the exact silhouettes in clothing selection that flatter the various short waists and long waists by their body shape. Waist length numbers are scientifically provided via the Golden Ratio or called Divine Proportion. In fact, all beauty in Nature is due to the Golden Ratio or called Divine Proportion. This insight will help all women feel empowered by dressing to their best potential.
