Ways to Dress to Make Yourself Look Slimmer

 If you tip the scales a bit toward the heavy side, chances are you constantly face the challenge of how to dress for your body type. You don’t want to appear like a big, pitiful mass wrapped in a shapeless shirt, but you have  no other way on how to dress up to hide your extra weight and appear slimmer.

General Rule of Thumb If You Want to hide your imperfections and flaunt your assets?
1. Buy clothes that fit. The first step to dressing tolook slim is to only wear clothes that fit. Clothes that are too baggy or too tight will always make you look bigger. If you have clothes that are the wrong size, give them away. For bodies with imbalanced proportions, you'll need to dress the largest part of your body first. For example, if you have thick thighs but a small waist, buy pants that fit the legs comfortably and either pair them with a nice belt or have the waist tailored to fit. If the opposite is true -- a bigger waist and thinner legs -- buy pants with a comfortable waist. This is true for all areas of the body.
2. Accentuate your favorite feature. Everyone has a feature on their body they're most proud of. Find yours and buy clothes that draw attention to it. If you have a small waist, buy nice belts. If you have nice, firm legs, wear shorter skirts that will show them off. If you have beautiful, well-proportioned feet, slip into cute sandals. Drawing attention to the best parts of your body will help you and others not to notice your flaws as much.
3. Stay away from busy prints – Clothing items with lots of busy, assorted prints on them can make you look larger. Also, avoid horizontally printed stripes, as they give the illusion of having a wider body, which you do not want to happen. Should you need to wear a printed item, choose vertical stripes and strategically located prints (a simple design on your neck and chest area, perhaps).

4. Look for solid colors and bold patterns. Large blocks of solid colors can make you look leaner. Wearing a top and bottom in the same colors or a long, solid-colored dress can make onlookers see you as longer and leaner than you actually are. Bold patterns can blur your outline and any flaws it might have so people will see a pretty pattern rather than things you might want to hide. However, if you are very curvy, stick to bold patterns on looser fabrics, such as chiffon, and avoid knits. Stay away from tiny patterns and or patterns in very light colors since these can actually draw attention to flaws. Black is a popular color when you're trying to look slim, but it can be boring. Try other dark neutrals as well, such as eggplant or dark emerald green.
5. Find a fitted skirt. When choosing skirts, you should look for an A-line cut in a medium to heavy material tolook slimmer. Avoid very soft or clingy fabrics like silk. The A-line style obscures an unattractive shape and accentuates everything above the waist. Lengths can vary, but it's best to avoid skirts that hang all the way to the floor. Skirts that end a little above or below the knee tend to be most flattering, as are mid-calf styles.
6. Accentuate your shoulders or legs. If you feel bottom-heavy, try wearing clothes to accentuate the shoulders, such as fitted blazers and jackets. If you have broad shoulders or a large bust, try wearing a dark color, such as black or navy blue, on top and a brightly-colored or patterned skirt or pants. This will minimize your problem areas and help you feel more
                                  balanced and in proportion overall.
7.  Rock a pair of nude high heels – High heels, particularly nude ones that are worn with the kind of trousers described above, elongate a heavy body. The added height also takes the attention off the body size and put more emphasis on how thinner you look when you’re tall. Choose a pair of nude heels that are both comfortable and durable, and one that can easily be hidden inside the flares of your pants.Confidence Is Always Key
6. Pay attention to hair and makeup. If you're not very confident about your body, consider attracting attention to your face. Play up your features, such as pretty eyes, full lips, high cheekbones or a nice nose, with the right makeup. A good haircut can have as much effect on your apparent weight as a good outfit. Ask your stylist for ideas on cuts to look your best and for styles that will elongate your neck or make your face either fuller or thinner.

Don't be afraid to use color and pattern. In the right place color and pattern can contribute to the overall slimming effect of an outfit. Try wearing long colored scarves or necklaces and highlighting your favorite areas using color. A brightly colored over sized clutch can also have a slimming effect.

If you have large arms, then choose designs of women's outfits with hands or wear a light-weight jacket or cardigan over short sleeve tops and clothes...

Products made in China are well known for its low price and acceptable quality. The typical way that Chinese products go to American and European consumers is, first, the Amerian and European importers buy wholesale Chinese products from the international trade and manufacturing companies in China, and second, distributes these products to the shopping malls, outlets and online stores. Things have changed.

I've truly generally observed of which kids/teens would like to read about a protagonist which is a small much older than they're. So if that's the case, I trust Emily's assertion of which there ought to be somewhat more space about 17 for YA fictional protagonists.

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
