I have added some weight in the last couple of weeks, and I am trying very hard to shake off. I don’t really mind the extra weight to be honest, my main focus is to look and feel very fit. But adding the extra weight has opened my eyes to some issues many women will be dealing with it on a day-to-day basis. Styling a new size 12 body can be a pain when all your outfits are in a size 10. Trust me I know, I have been there and done that, and I know first hand how that can also play on your body confidence, if you are not happy with the extra pounds added.
If your goal is to look slimmer while you work on your body, here are 6 tips for you:
Wear the right size
Wearing a size too small happens when we are in denial; holding on to our old body. If none of your clothes fit, get a few clothes that fit properly, while you work on your body, if that is what you are after. Squeezing your body in clothes that do not fit will only make you appear bigger.
Make sure you walk tall
Make sure you walk tall. Walk with your back straight and your head held up high. This is the simplest way to appear slimmer. This trick will elongate your body, making you look a size slimmer.
Choose your pieces carefully
Opt for lightweight fabrics such as cashmere, cotton, that will skim your curves, rather than stick on them. You should avoid lycra pieces as much as possible.
Go for darker colours
Dark colours help make us appear slimmer but you don’t have to wear all black. Navy blue, brown and dark grey all have the same slimming effect.
Wrapping your hair in a ponytail will instantly make anyone look slimmer. A ponytail gives the illusion of a slimmer face and a longer neck.
Heels have the power to make us look slimmer. I know many women struggle with walking in heels but once you find a comfortable pair, your style game will be out of this world! Heels paired with skinny jeans will make your legs appear longer and slimmer.
