There is so much pressure out there about looking good. Women are spending more time keeping fit and healthy and looking after their bodies. I am going to share with you some of my stylish slimming secrets on how to dress your body shape and disguise the areas you hate.
Dress your body shape and disguise the areas you hate
We all have bits of our bodies that we don’t like and want to hide and you can do that by the way you dress. Take this floral bodycon dress, it is very on trend and the black sides have a very slimming effect. A lot of these dresses also come with a tummy firming panel. This gives the illusion of a waist and will excentuate your curvy figure.
Also you can buy the same thing in a skirt which will have the same effect.
I am a lover of these these trousers with the side stripe, they are super slimming and elongate the length of your legs. These trousers are no longer just for the gym and look great teamed with some heals. The stripe draws the eyes down and gives the illusion of long slim legs. Choose a high waisted jeans to make your legs look like they go on forever.
If you carry most of your weight around your bottom area make sure you wear your dark colours on the bottom and brighter colours on your top half. Basically you should put the colour wear you want the eyes to be drawn too. Women in general think black is slimming and if they carry some weight think that dressing in all black will make them look slimmer. Yes that can be the case but black in not a colour all women can wear. However, if you wear the black on your lower half and not near your face you can get away with it. There are other darks colours you could choose in preferance, why not try navy, chocolate brown or dark grey as an alternative.
Want to hide a tummy?
There are lots of ways to do that, when buying your jeans make sure that you choose a pair that go to the waist or fit just under, as this way you will be able hide a muffin top which will give a smoother line. I personally find that the pull in pants only push the fat up and out somewhere else so better to control that inside your jeans or trousers. If you are wearing a dress I would suggest that you choose a full pant to get a smooth line. Underwear plays a large part in the overall look so make sure you have good support underwear which gives you smooth lines under your clothes. For larger ladies when choosing a dress take a look at an empire line which hangs from the bust and this will hang loose around the tummy area, you can also go for tops in the same style. There are also many tops and dresses that have a draping effect across the waist area which will also be very flattering.
Concious of your upper arms?
Never fear there are lots of things you can do to cover the tops of your arms. With summer approaching I am a fan of the kimono and they come in some lovely prints and shear fabrics great for the summer. Team them with a t/shirt underneath over your favorite jeans. The fashion this season is all about the sleeves so embrace the trend you will be spoilt for choice.
