Why is it that French women look as glamorous in a T-shirt and pair of jeans as a designer dress? What is the secret that keeps them sexy and attractive from 18 to 80? How do they stay pencil thin? Why do they flirt so much? And how do they justify sleeping with their best friends’ husband?
Helena Frith Powell puts on suspenders and goes deep undercover to reveal the secret of French beauty in a witty investigation. Exploring French women’s passion for looking and feeling good, she talks to experts on French womanhood – from intellectuals from St. Germain, to the owner of a sex shop for women, to the bra fitter in the lingerie rooms of an exclusive department store in Paris – where she says goodbye to her M&S knickers forever. French women, she discovers, aim for maximum effect with the least amount of effort through their passion for face-creams, silk underwear, and la petite adventure.
