Patti sees Britney wearing a sexy new dress. Patti, who really doesn't like Britney, says, "That dress is really sharp. It really makes you look so slim!" Left handed compliment: "You're fat, and that dress makes you look like you're trying to hide it."

"Boy, you're pretty hot... for a fat (or skinny) chick!" Left handed compliment: Self-explanatory

An insult disguised as a compliment.
A left handed compliment would be something like the following..."I like your imperfections. Without them you'd be really hot, but boring."
