This Is Just My Face- Gabourey Sidibe

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare by Gabourey Sidibe
The Oscar-nominated Precious star and Empire actress delivers a much-awaited memoir—wise, complex, smart, funny—a version of the American experience different from anything we’ve read 

Gabourey Sidibe—“Gabby” to her legion of fans—skyrocketed to international fame in 2009 when she played the leading role in Lee Daniels’s acclaimed movie Precious. In This Is Just My Face, she shares a one-of-a-kind life story in a voice as fresh and challenging as many of the unique characters she’s played onscreen. With full-throttle honesty, Sidibe paints her Bed-Stuy/Harlem family life with a polygamous father and a gifted mother who supports her two children by singing in the subway. Sidibe tells the engrossing, inspiring story of her first job as a phone sex “talker.” And she shares her unconventional (of course!) rise to fame as a movie star, alongside “a superstar cast of rich people who lived in mansions and had their own private islands and amazing careers while I lived in my mom's apartment.”  

Sidibe’s memoir hits hard with self-knowing dispatches on friendship, depression, celebrity, haters, fashion, race, and weight (“If I could just get the world to see me the way I see myself,” she writes, “would my body still be a thing you walked away thinking about?”). Irreverent, hilarious, and untraditional, This Is Just My Face will resonate with anyone who has ever felt different, and with anyone who has ever felt inspired to make a dream come true.

    How to Measure

    Hips
    Measure around the fullest part of your hips, placing the tape around midway between your crotch and belly button.

    Bra - How to Measure

    Step 1: Measure your band size.

    With your bra on, measure firmly around your rib cage, underneath your breast. The measuring tape should be parallel with the ground. Please reference chart below for band measurements.

    Step 2: Measure your cup size.

    With your bra on, measure the fullest part of your bust. This works best with a non-padded bra. Make sure the tape is taut and straight. 

    Step 3: Calculate your bra size.

    Subtract your band measurement from your cup measurement. Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size.
    Range 29"–32" 33"–34" 35"–39" 39"–41" 42"–43" 44"–45"
    Size 34 36 38 40 42 44

    Example:

    Step 1: 33" = 36 Band

    Step 2: 38"

    Step 3: 38" - 33" = 5", which is an E cup size in Prima Donna or DD in Elomi
