    Default Be honest

    When being asked that sort of question ,it seems someone is fishing for compliments.
    I always open with "Now you have come to mention it "
    It always goes downhill from there.lol

    Been there many times and will still give the same honest answer. I'm not going to lie just to make her feel good-thats what chocolate is for. Mind you, if she ate less chocolate....

    It looks like a few are voting to be totally honest, yet no comments. This makes me think that most of them are the ladies but come on ladies. Have you any idea what it is like for us when you get that glare when we do the honest thing and from that moment on we need to be at least 4 bus lenghts of a head start.

    Like LF my early warning systems kick in at those moments and my body screams "get outta here quickkkkkkk" I have no desire to be a eunuch

    OK I will jump in here for the ladies. If you lie to us in the first instance in the shop and we buy the said item you are given a false sense of "phew I got away with it". We move on - there is a night out said item is put on and in different light and mirror of the home environment (yep shop mirrors are desgined to lie too ) we see that bum (or whatever) does look big in it. Oh no boys do you not think a much bigger kicking will ensue? Up to you chaps - try usin yer noggins!

    Default depends on friend

    if it is a good friend - will tell the truth, they know me
    if it is an acquaintance and not sure of the ground - will say I dont like the shape/colour/hangs wrong anything other than say they have a big derriere
    total stranger - tell the truth whatever it may be.

    I would tell the truth,and I would expect the same from whoever I had asked(and no i wouldnt ask just hoping for compliments) There is nothing worse than buying something that looks fine in the shop but then when you put it on at home it looks terrible,and usually by then you have had it too long to return it.Guys we wont eat you alive for telling the truth....just be careful how you word it x

    I've been in many a shop, and many a changing room, where a woman is trying on a garment that, no matter how attractive she is, just simply doesn't suit her. It is always a challenge...do you say something? Do you not, and let herself wander out thinking she looks just great in that??? The thing is, if women dressed to their figure, they look terrific! stunning even! So why let them walk out the door in something that is less than what they could be?

    Well Bob,thats a big problem,cos you guys always have foot in mouth disease but I would prefer to be told "well no Hun,its not the nicest outfit you have how about putting on the lovely black dress (or whatever) instead" than to be told "hell yes it makes your ass look like the back end of a bus" Oh! and another pointer for you guys...when we ask "what should I wear?" dont reply with "whatever you are comfy in" it doesnt help and drives us crazy x

    My man loves my bum whatever it is clad in, so couldn't get anunbiased answer from him anyway! He did once tell me my bum looked huge in a pair of tracky bottoms - which were bought slightly larger for comfort and lounging around house in. Following the comment, they went straight in the bin!

    I also would prefer an honest answer, even if it hurt. There could be nothing worse than going toa do in what you think is a gorgeous outfit (an is, but on someone else!) and everyone else is sniggering at you behind their glass of wine or whatever. That is more of an insult than you men being honest. If you cared about us and our feelings, you would spare us that public humility. And also remember - you men will also get slagged off for us wearing the outfit - "how could he let her go out in that? He MUST know she looks like a beached whale/has an ass like a parcel shelf!" The way we dress reflects on your character too!

    Maybe a grading system is worth thinking about working from the neck down.......Something like this.
    Each area marked 1 to 10.......Neckline, Bust, Waist, Stomach, Bum and length.
    Mark each area individually add up the score and then judge for yourself.
