People’s pursuit for perfection is never-ending. The aged (and even the young) get under the knife or have injections to hide those sagging body parts. The bald decide to have implants. The fat takes diet pills. But, what if you’re against these very common but unnatural interventions? “There’s no cure for ugly, but you can make yourself into a human optical illusion”. That quote was from Jenna Marbles, an entertainer and a YouTube personality. The first premise in the quote seems a little rude, but the second claim makes up for it. I totally agree with her. You don’t have to have operations or extreme makeover. If you want to look slimmer, all you have to do is to play with the eyes of people around you by choosing to wear the right things. Keep these tips in your mind next time you shop or the next time you find yourself in front of your closet trying to decide which ones to wear.
Choose the suitable accessories. Never allow accessories to make up for your size. If you’re petite, do not wear oversized bling. They seem to engulf the whole you. On the other hand, if you have a bigger frame, don’t put on tiny pieces. They make you look fuller. The bulky and bigger jewelry tend to be winners for the larger size. Bottom line: select the ones that match your size and the ones that can draw more attention to your best feature(s).
Pick underwear that fits well. An undergarment that fits well makes you feel at your best. A bra that snug well will help lift your bust and at the same time makes you feel young. High-waisted and firm underwear also helps hide some unwanted curves on your hips. Compression garments such as girdles and vests also helps.
Pattern issues. Big patterns are overwhelming. Small patterns are awesome. As for stripes, horizontal stripes create a fuller effect while the vertical stripes tend to make the figure stretch perpendicularly.
Hide the unwelcomed curves. If you have a heavy bottom, an A-line or flowy skirt will do the trick. Loose and flowy tunic also puts the belly fat out of sight.
Go for the right size. When shopping, do not attempt to buy the clothes smaller than your size. You wouldn’t want to hold your breath, do you? Wearing them will also make you look as if you’re about to burst. Small sizes will highlight your belly. Contrary to that, choosing a size bigger than you are seems to add more weight.
Learn to love the darker shades. Black and dark colors conceals while light hues catch the attention. While getting yourself busy with choosing the darker shades, you must also keep in your mind to opt for the shade that suits your skin tone.
These are just some of the strategies to make one appear slimmer. But do you know what are the two best things to wear? Nothing beats a beautiful smile and a confidence.
