How to Make Yourself Look Thinner

Nowadays, getting slim is the in-thing. It is definitely easier to move around if you are light than if you are overweight or obese. You can also enjoy dressing up in a wider variety of outfits if you are slim as most outfits are made for a slim frame. Trying to lose weight takes time but you can learn how to make yourself look thinner today. Here are some tips that you can try:

  1. Wear clothes that fit just right. If they are too tight, they will make your bulges more prominent. If, conversely, they are too loose, they will make you look even bigger. When you shop for clothes, make sure you try them on and see that they fit you well. Every size and brand has a different fit. This is especially the case for jeans. So take the time to try them out before you buy them.

  2. Choose clothes that are dark in shade. They give the impression of a slimmer figure, unlike light-colored clothes. Choose vertical designs, never horizontal ones. The latter encourage people to look at you sideways, emphasizing your flab. Whatever you wear, make sure that the design does not emphasize your problem area.

  3. Improve your posture. If you stand tall, you will look smaller. Even if you are fat, your muscles will be stretched, and your stomach will be in and pulled back, leaving no section protruding. Slouching will definitely make you look bigger in the middle.

  4.  Wear supportive undergarments. These will help to shape your body and hide the unwanted bulge. They may be uncomfortable if they are too tight. So do not overdo it. Wear undergarments just one size smaller than your own and you will get the same effect. Push-up bras and girdles serve the same purpose.

  5. Wear bold accessories, including belts or sashes. These will take the attention away from your body.

  6. Change your hairstyle to one that will elongate your neck and your face. Long-layered hair is just fine. A bob will make your face look round. Changing your hairstyle from time to time will make you look chic.

  7. Wear high-heeled footwear. This will make you look taller and more elegant. Practice walking in the shoes if you have to. After all, you don’t want to have an accident while trying to appear graceful. Interestingly, some people are more at ease wearing high-heeled shoes than flats.

  8. Wear eye makeup or nice lipstick to draw attention to your face instead of your body. There is no need to wear heavy makeup. Opt for the near-natural look instead.

  9. Show off your positive features. If you have nice legs, you can flaunt them by wearing short skirts or shorts. This will draw attention to the nice parts of your body and away from your problem areas.

  10. Choose a V neckline over a round or square one. This will make you look slimmer (as your upper body will appear longer).

Learn how to make yourself look thinner by reading the above tips and experimenting with them. Note that what is effective for others may not work for you. Be open to the advice of experts on this subject and have the courage to the put some of their words into action.
