Choosing the right clothing that fits properly can go a long way to slimming your look, no matter what size you are. Finding the right cut, colors, hemlines and necklines that balance your body proportions is the key. Here are some tips to dress thinner: 1.) Wear the right size: If your clothes are too tight, all the rolls, bulges, dimples, or any other flaw are accentuated. If clothes are too big, they add bulk and can make you look heavier than you actually are. 2.) Wear one hue: Tops and bottoms of the same color create an uninterrupted vertical line, making you look thinner and taller. 3.) Match your shoe color to your leg skin tone: Coordinate tones to elongate your bottom half. Try neutral skin-hued shoes with bare legs. 4.) Wear V-neck shirts and dresses: V-necks are a great way to create the illusion of a slimmer neckline, as they place emphasis on your chest area instead of on your neck. Avoid turtlenecks completely as they will make your neck disappear, meaning that you’ll look shorter and bigger. 5.) Wear below-the-knee hemlines: Long skirts for tall women, below-the-knee for short. 6.) Boot-cut pants: This will give a more symmetrical appearance and make you appear thinner. Avoid tapered or flared legs. 7.) The right underwear: Body slimming underwear that fits properly can make a huge difference in how you look once you’re dressed. Avoid bra straps that are too tight since they can cause rolls or bulges.
