I believe the truth CAN set you free, however there is something to be said for context. Knowing when and how to use the truth is key here. "Do these (clothes) make me look fat" is a question which deserves special consideration. I say this because obviously answering yes, they make your ass look like a double wide mobile home overflowing with deep fried lard, probably isn't the response she may be looking for. So with this in mind, whenever my wife asks me these sorts of questions, if the garment in question doesn't seem to suit her very well, I will tell her that the pattern or cut of the article is not very flattering, and that she might want to consider something a little different, in this way she gets an honest opinion while still considering her feelings.
