Hi Marie-Anne, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this Rectangle Shape e-course. I chanced upon you on Youtube quite recently, and really enjoyed learning from you. I like your personality, you charm, and the messages of chic and elegance that you so selflessly spread. Before purchasing this e-course, I emailed you and asked you a few questions about my body shape. You helped me understand my body shape and identified my needs. I’m pleased that I’ve checked it with you first and know for sure that I’ve bought the right e-book for myself. (I had thought I was an hourglass, oh no!) Wow - this book is really packed with lots of practical, simple-to-follow tips. It helps me see my unique body shape and know how to dress accordingly in different situations. You also use pictures to demonstrate your points about types of clothes - these visual guides are very useful. I also like your mini videos - they are short and sweet, and to the point. I think the length for each video is just right to get your points across. Some readers are more visual, so these videos are certainly highly valuable. The e-book also comes with your free e-book - How to be Chic and Elegant - this book is a diamond! The book is quite functional, with great advice (some are rather interesting, and cost-saving too), and it is split into many sections, so it is fairly easy to look for a particular piece of information. Finally I would like to say I’ve enjoyed the conversational style in your writing. Your ‘voice’ and your writing style are rather distinctive - your likes and dislikes are so strong, and you are confident about your opinions. I’ve also learnt new vocabulary about fashion and body image from your e-books - now I feel more empowered as I know how to discuss my body image and describe fashion more intelligently. Learning from you has made me feel more confident, and more educated. You passion has shone through your e-books and I’m glad to have known you, and get to better myself with self image and confidence, through your work. Thank you for sharing your gifts to us. I’ll come back for more.

Fantastic e course well worth the money which I will no doubt quickly save by no longer investing in the wrong items for my shape that take up too much space and mental-emotional bandwidth. Over a lifetime these savings would now be significant and I do wish I had found you sooner. From swimwear to gowns to shoes, jewelry and handbags each choice makes a lift or a yawn for the woman who is rectangle. The course was very thorough and the images were spot on. I will now begin carefully editing or curating my wardrobe and creating my wish list with your wisdom as my guide. Merci beaucoup! I thank you Marie-Anne! (Edit) I wrote my review and then discovered I am only 18% of the way through. There is so much information here. Wow such value for so much content. Deborah in San Diego CA

I cannot say enough about how excellent Marie-Anne is teaching you about your body shape. I finished the e-course and now know that when I previously wore necklines, skirt shapes, etc. that were not right for my body shape why I was not pleased with the way they looked on me. I highly recommend that everyone should take one of Marie-Anne's Body-Shape ECourses. You will not regret it and will love the way you look & feel in what you are wearing. Thank you again Marie-Anne.

This course is a must for rectangles. It teaches you methodically what to buy and look for in clothes so that your figure won’t be lost. This is very important information given the boxy styles currently in fashion. I now shop with clear cut rules in my head and if everything is boxy, I might admire it’s fabric but I know to walk away and save my money and closet space. I knew I was a rectangle, but the actual shopping guidelines didn’t sink in until I took this course. I just had a date comment on my hourglass figure! As a 5’2”, 105lbs, AA cup I would have to say, mission accomplished!!! Merci, Marie-Anne💋

Enjoyed and learned from the course. Found it very helpful when Marie-Anne provided actual examples of dresses/pants/skirts that enhance the Rectangle shape. It would be helpful if line drawings of these items & blouses/sweaters were provided so that your students could print out the sheets and refer to them when shopping.

I took the free shape up ecourse and I couldn't decide which shape I was. I have a very strong shoulder line, no bust and a round bottom and hips (where I gain weight). I'm tall and look slim. I initially signed up for the inverted triangle but it just didn't seem right. I emailed Marie-Anne and we worked out what I was. She transferred me over to the rectangle course and it was exactly what I was looking for. It turned out that I had been employing some of the tips she gave without realising or knowing what I was doing. I also realised after her descriptions, that some of my past favourite pieces were actually in styles she described as suiting my body type and lastly, she taught me why some of the styles I am currently wearing, whilst they don't look bad, they certainly don't help. Marie-Anne has given me the knowledge to purposefully create styles and shapes that suit my body, instead of the trial and error that was happening beforehand. Invaluable!

Dear Marie-Anne, At the beginning of this course, I was unsure whether I would learn anything new (my stepmother was a tailor and seamstress and tried to teach me the basics in my teens). By the time I got to the lesson on necklines for rectangles, I experienced a lightbulb moment, mainly that I had been choosing unflattering necklines due to not being fussy enough in my clothing purchases (buying T-shirts!). I had not been investing in my own style because I was economizing on clothing (living in rural Western Canada, "the sticks") and the culture here is very casual and dressing-down is widespread. However, I am aware now of how to make the best of my figure and choose the most flattering necklines and will give style journalling a try. Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge, Mary-Ann Dubeski

Marie-Anne gives you uncomplicated and well organized information on how to dress for the rectangle shape. She walks you through each garment you may place on your rectangle shape body. Then she gives you clues on determining how and why a particular choice of clothing might be right for your shape. In the past I have read books and blogs on how to dress the rectangle shape and in my humble opinion I believe Marie-Anne Lecoeur does this far better than many others. I am truly, much more confident now when I purchase a new piece of clothing, knowing it is the correct choice for me and thrilled with how easy it is to pull a nice outfit together each day. Merci Marie-Anne.
