enhanced when your clothes follow the contours of your body.

2 A smooth surface
Create a smooth line with your under garments for a slimming effect on top.
A well fitted bra will give you uplift and a more youthful figure. Don't be afraid to make use of Shapewear.
3 Not too big, not too small just 'fit'
Baggy clothes introduce additional volume to enlarge you. Clothes that are too tight will cling - this will also make you look bigger. Clothes that fit will enhance your figure - clothes should skim rather than cling. Choose fluid fabrics that skim and drape the body but don't add bulk.
A wrap dress is always flattering in a soft fabric.
4 A column of color
Jacket and pants to match will help to disguise wider hips and thighs. Top and pants to match will help to disguise a full midriff. Both versions create the column of color. A monochromatic look i.e. different shades of one color works well too. You can choose a top to toe color with a dress as I did here.
Black is slimming if it suits you otherwise choose a deep tone from your best color palette. V necks will make you look slimmer.
sleeves can be very heavy and over powering. Showing more flesh can be
slenderising. If you're concerned about your arms a cap sleeve works wonders.
