    1. Avoid anything stiff. A stiff garment forms a square box
    around you. It doesn’t fall into flattering loose folds but
    stands out on its own making even skinny people look large.
    Having a shape is important whatever your size.

    2. The same goes for the large tents that we try to camouflage
    ourselves in. It doesn’t work we just look larger. Shape is

    3. Other than in your accessories don’t wear anything shiny.
    Shiny is great for jewelry, bags, decorative motifs, scarves,
    but not for a whole garment. Shine reflects the light making
    you look bigger and showing every curve and bump.

    4. You know about avoiding horizontal stripes but are you aware
    of hidden stripes? A belt in a contrasting shade, large top
    pockets, contrasting ribbing on the bottom of a jersey?
    These are all stripes and can make you look larger than you
    wish. Look carefully at a garment to check for these design
    traps and avoid them.

    5. Conversely, subtle vertical stripes are (usually) your
    friend. Find them in a garment’s style and stitching,
    a deeply cut V-necked jacket, a silk scarf hanging loosely,
    long beads, the drape of pants or skirt etc.

    6. But vertical stripes on tightly clinging leggings or pants
    are not flattering. The stripes follow your curves,
    emphasizing them cruelly.

    7. Avoid bulky fabrics such as quilted parkas- these often
    offend on two counts, one by horizontally machined quilting
    and another by too much padding. They look enormous and so
    does anyone who wears them. Thick mohair jumpers are another
    fattener. Thinner fabrics, such as polar fleece, can be
    equally warm so there is no need to bulk up.

    8. On the other hand don’t buy cheap thin fabrics. A fabric
    must have enough body to hang well rather than clinging.
    Even T-Shirts in cheap thin fabrics look dreadful and they
    don’t last as long so are not really cheaper. Buy fewer
    and buy quality.

    9. Monochrome dressing is slimming and elegant. Dress in one
    color from top to toe, preferably a dark neutral. For
    interest vary textures or add color in your accessories.
    A plain black outfit with a turquoise silk scarf or bright
    pink earrings for example.

    10. Don’t wear frills and ruffles if you have passed your 10th
    birthday. They add bulk and look tacky.

    11. Beware of clothes that are too small, they are fattening.
    Not only are they unflattering but wearing them makes you
    feel fat all day. If a garment is tight chuck it out or
    pack it away until it fits again.

    12. If you have put on a pound or two don’t forget to check
    your bra. Does it still fit? Its so easy to forget and to
    keep wearing a bra that fitted once. Badly fitting bras
    create horrible bulges across your back, treat yourself
    to a new one.

    They have undergarments for slimming that work really well. It isn’t obvious at all that you are wearing anything under your clothes, and it just tucks things in tighter. You can find them at a lot of different stores, but I get mine at Nordstroms.

    Wearing black is always an easy one too.

    I became overweight until I used acai berry, I understand they say that pills won’t work, but they certainly worked for me, and they have been featured on the Rachael Ray Show too. There’s a free trial on at the moment at , why not check it out, how worse could it make things?

    Dark clothing.
    Small- no patterns.

    Black is the best color, it’s known to be most slimming, as-well as red, because it’s vibrant.
    Stay away from light color’s, although it’s great to have some vib in clothing once i’n a while.

    Big patter’ns make people appear bigger! So stay away from big circle’s and print’s, small pattern’s/ print’s make a more slimming look.

    Skirt’s that go to the waist- past the hips, and knee length are most slimming for the torso- leg sections. Make sure to wear tight’s underneath, with some great heals- stay away from flat’s!

    Straight-leg pan’ts are a yes! They appear more slimming then skin tight jean’s, and bargin cordories.

    Hope this helps!

    Wear form-fitting black clothes and avoid bright, flashy clothing. Keep your skin fresh-looking and take care of your appearance. AND lastly, please don’t wear something that makes you look bigger than you already are like a puffy jacket or a short bubble skirt….good luck 🙂
