Off we go - 10 ways to look Slimmer!
1 Dress to your Shape
Identify your Body Type
and dress to fit and flatter your bone structure. Your figure will be
enhanced when your clothes follow the contours of your body.
Address any figure challenges and follow the styling tips for your own individual figure challenges
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.

tiny bags and jewelry make a body look bigger Long
sleeves can be heavy and over powering, more flesh can be
slenderising as I show below. Even 3/4 sleeves allow you to look slimmer than long sleeves!
If you're concerned about your arms a cap sleeve works wonders.
7 Shoulder pads - always your friend
Wear shoulder pads to add width to your topline - it takes the emphasis away from midriff and hips.
8 Good posture
Stand tall and confident to look taller slimmer and more attractive. Good posture helps your muscles to stay taut keeping your figure trim.
High heels help you to stand up
straight and tuck your bottom in looking slimmer. Make sure they are proportionate to your height, not killer heels if you are very short.
9 Play the camera
You can easily lose a few pounds by playing to the camera. Shoulders and
hips are the widest part of your body, turn a 45 degree angle and look
at the difference. Stand with your feet shoulder distance apart, weight
on the back foot, give your knee a little bend and you have an instant
