It is amazing how the right fit and design of a piece of clothing can make you appear instantly thinner. Slimming clothing options are endless no matter what your body type and problem areas. The links here on our website can direct you to the best deals around on clothes for a thinner you.
By carefully considering the size, pattern, and shape of the clothing that you wear, you can appear pounds slimmer. The right clothes will enhance your best features while downplaying your not-so-great-ones. So, how do you do this? The absolute first rule is to resist the urge to buy clothing in a bigger size to hide your problem areas - this only makes you look larger; not to mention frumpy, disheveled, and anything but confident. Instead buy the right clothes in your true size; let’s see how.
Avoid heavy fabrics that are bulky and have a lot of texture. These tend to drape poorly over your figure and add extra volume. At the same time, say goodbye to lighter, shiny fabrics which instantly attract the eye and make the surface area appear bigger than it actually is; opt for fabrics with a matte finish. Always buy the best you can afford; higher-quality fabrics tend to drape your body better than inexpensive, cheaply-made ones.
We’ve always been told that black makes us look thinner; and it does. To add variety to your wardrobe, you can obtain this same slimming effect with other dark colors as well. Try deep greens, purples, navy and midnight blues, brown, charcoal gray, and olive. Try wearing one of these colors from head-to-toe, as a single color always makes your body appear longer and slimmer. When you do wear two different colors, be very careful where the colors break; make sure that break isn’t right across your problem area.
Patterns can be your friend or your foe; it all depends on the size and direction of the print. Small patterns can effectively camouflage bumps and bulges where larger prints can easily draw unwanted attention to the same. Eyes naturally follow the movement of lines. If you are wearing vertical stripes, the eye will move from top to bottom creating the illusion of more height while distracting from the width. And of course, the opposite is true with horizontal stripes; these highlight breadth – not a good thing if you want to appear slimmer. In addition to vertical stripes; a line of buttons, single-breasted jackets, princess seams, or even seams ironed into the front of your pants are great “vertical lines.”
Accessories are a great way to draw attention to other parts of your body. Go for heavy necklaces to distract from a large bottom or wide hips. A long necklace can even give the illusion of a longer-waisted figure. Choose a bag that is in proportion to your body; if you are heavy, avoid carrying a very small bag. Always go for a shoe with a heel. Even the slightest lift will make you stand straighter, appear taller (and thinner), and force you to walk with confidence and grace.
Jeans are closet staple and can be worn by people of all shapes and sizes; if worn properly that is. Pay close attention to color, fit, and fabric. The advertisements you see here will help you with everything you need to know about slimming jeans. You’ll also find great deals on high-end jeans as well as those more economically priced.
