Off we go - 10 ways to look Slimmer!

1  Dress to your Body 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.

  • V necks will make you look slimmer.
  • Long 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.

5  Think Vertical

  • Vertical stripes or a row of buttons
  • vertical panel down the front of a dress
  • assymetrical lines or handkerchief hems
  • Continue hem color into tights or boots

6  Dress to look slimmer by avoiding...

  • Fussy detail, frills and fullness
  • bulky knitwear and heavy textures
  • baggy clothes, your figure will be enlarged
  • horizontal stripes
  • glitzy, shiny fabrics or sequins draw the eye
  • light colors on your bottom half
  • tiny bags and jewelry make a body look bigger

7  Shoulder pads - always your friend

  • Wear shoulder pads to add width to your topline - it takes the emphasis away from midriff and hips.

And 3 things you can do instantly...

8  Stand tall and confident

  • Good posture will make you appear taller and thinner and show your body to best advantage
  • Good posture will help your muscles to stay taut and keep your figure in trim
  • High heels will help you to stand up straight and tuck your bottom in but make sure they are proportionate to your size - not killer heels if you are very short.

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 waistline!
