This show is a smidgen of eco fashion fun -- but those who lack the clothes horse gene might do best watching something else. But for frugal fashionistas and eco-minded aspiring clothing designers, this show may just make it onto the must-watch list. Shareen says that she wants to "endow women with a greater sense of their own esteem," which isn't a message you often here in the world of fashion. Indeed, Shareen's mission does seem to provide her clients with clothes that best highlight their bodies, curves and all. Unfortunately, there's a fair amount of body griping on display from the clients themselves, who complain about back fat, the need for Spanx, and not having flat stomachs. For this reason, parents may want to confront these attitudes when discussing the show with kids.

DRESSCUE ME lacks the high drama of the Real Housewives franchise, which is both a positive and a drawback. Producers seem to be trying to force drama out of interactions between Shareen and her staff, and this ends up feeling forced. The absence of cat-fighting and other typical reality show fare is actually what makes the show appealing -- especially for teens.
