Losing weight is not an easy task. It can be very frustrating to prepare for a big event only to find that your dress does not fit you properly. Well lucky for you there are ways to look thinner without losing weight. Sometimes it what you wear and how you wear that can make it look as thought you are losing weight or are thinner.

1 Dark Colors

Once I made the mistake of wearing a white dress when I had picked up a couple of extra pounds. To my utter disgust, I found that the white made me look like a total whale. If I had just opted for a navy blue, brown or black dress, it would have been a much different result. When dressing to look thinner, it is important to take into consideration the color that you wear. When you are trying to look thinner, remember that darker colors are slimming. If you have gained a little weight, you might want to skip that yellow or pink dress and grab the black tube dress.

2 Spanx/Shapewear

Shape wear have been a godsend for me. After delivering my son, my waist was non existent. During pregnancy I gained about 50 pounds and I had a difficult time losing weight with a newborn. After surfing the web for fashion tips on enhancing your curves, I discovered waist training and shape wear. If you have a perfect dress for a party, but your thighs are a tad too big or your waist isn’t quite small enough, grab a pair of Spanx or a regular ole piece of Shape wear. Shape wear can make you lose and inch of your waist INSTANTLY. You will go from hubba bubba to Jessica Rabbit in 0-20 seconds. However, there are a few things to consider. If you are purchasing shape wear to wear in the summer time under thinner materials, you want to go for Spanx. Spanx does not have the wires that some shape wear has. These wires are visible at times when wearing thinner materials. You also want to consider the size. If you are waist training and want to lose an inch or two off your waist, you should buy your shape wear one size too small. For example, if I am a size medium blouse, I would buy a small in shape wear. Keep in mind, shape wear is not necessarily meant to be comfortable when used for waist training.

3 Say No to poorly fitted attire

Some believe that wearing baggy clothing makes them look thinner. Actually the opposite holds true, baggy clothing can make you look bigger and sloppier. Baggy clothing allows for no shape or definition to your figure. At the same time, extremely tight clothing is also not good. Most times tight clothing draws attention to problem areas, bulges and bumps. There are times that tight clothing can even expose that unsightly cellulite in thighs and buttocks. It is possible to wear fitted clothing that is NOT too tight. When dressing in fitted pieces, please make sure that the clothing does not expose any bulges or bumps. If you zip a skirt and a muffin top appears, that skirt is too small. If something is slightly tighter than you would like, consider wearing shape wear under the piece.

4 Low Rise Jeans

When someone mentions low rise jeans, many envision those jeans that expose your buttocks or unsightly pubic hair. Well there are several brands of women’s jeans that are low rise and sit just below the waist line. Allot of these women’s jeans, when purchased for your frame, allow you to move freely without exposing any of your private areas. However low rise jeans that sit below your waist giving the allusion of a longer more slender abdomen.

5 Careful with your patterns

Patterned material can hurt you and help you. If you are trying to draw attention away from a large bust area, you would want to avoid large patterns. It is acceptable to wear patterned clothing; you just want to make sure that the patterns are small and worn correctly. For instance, to make wide hips look thinner, you may consider a dark pencil skirt and a patterned top. The dark color on bottom is slimming and the patterned top draws attention to your top half.

6 Wear High Heels

Wearing high heels can help you look thinner in two ways. Number one and the obvious, high heels make you look taller. The taller you are the thinner you appear. Number two, heels are also great for your legs. High heels make your calves look slender and more defined. High heels are a must for looking thinner without losing weight
