Believe it or not, fashion can give us the illusion of a slimmer physique. The type of clothes you wear could actually make you look skinnier or the opposite, when you wear clothes that fit and are appropriate for your body shape, you’ll never have to worry of getting heavier than you are or have a bad cloth day.
Here are some clothes which you can actually wear that will give you a skinnier look.
- Wear Fitted Undergarments.
Many ladies are not aware that wearing fitted clothes from the foundation which is the undergarments can actually make them look skinnier. Well the good news is that you are now aware. Fitted garments are especially important when selecting a bra. A good fitting bra helps to shape your silhouette and you’re chest contained. Wearing the wrong size bra can create cutting lines that dig into your skin and cause your bust to spill out from the top. Also avoid wearing underwear that are too small because they create bulges and panty lines that can be seen through pants and other garments. You could try body-slimming undergarments which are sold in the market, they give you that extra help in keeping your excess weight in check.
- Wear your body fitted outfits only
Make sure you buy the right sized clothes each time you go shopping. Your clothes should be fitted but not so tight that the parts you are trying to make less apparent bulge out of your clothes and avoid clothes that are too big and baggy because they will make you look wider and heavier than you actually are.
- Wear Dark Colored Clothes
It’s a well-known fact that black makes you look thinner. Colours that are too bright for your body can make you look heavier. If you combine a black top and black pants, it gives an optical illusion and reduce your heavy weight. So try putting on dark colours like chocolate brown, deep red, purple, navy blue, and maroon but black is more preferable.
- Cinch with Skinny Belts
Skinny belts rasp round your waist can actually make you look slimmer. They help define your natural waist in the most flattering way possible. It also makes your upper body look skinnier.
- Wear Vertical Striped Clothes
This is an old trick to make you look skinnier. Wear pinstripes, pleats, and vertical zippers, and avoid horizontal stripes or rows of embellishments. Vertical details prompt the eye to look up and down instead of side to side, which helps create the illusion of slenderness and thus making you look, well and longer because of the long lines they create.
- Wear a High Heel or platform
Wear high heels with pointed toe and a lower vamp (portion of a shoe that cuts across your foot at the front) as shoes that have a low-cut vamp instantly elongate and slenderize your leg when you’re wearing skirts and shorts. Also avoid wearing shoes with strapped ankles because they place a horizontal line at the top of your foot, which cuts off your leg and makes it look shorter instead of longer.
