Hello Everybody

Today I want to help you hide some of those unwanted pounds by following the following tips:

– Strive for a low-keyed look and avoid trying to make a dramatic statement with your clothes – dress simply!

 – Augment your height by choosing clothes with vertical lines; subtle stripes, vertical trimmings will help to slenderize the waist.

– Keep clothes neat and well-defined. Uncontrolled fullness always exaggerates size. Voluminous caftans may conceal body details, but they manage to make the entire silhouette look bigger.

– Play up your assets: If you have beautiful hands, wear rings and lots of bracelets. A pretty face? Nice legs? Wear simple dresses that lead the eye to wear you want it.

– If you are short and heavy, never wear fluffy, fussy clothes …..they add bulk. Instead wear loosely fitted soft materials which produce gently vertical lines.

– A generous bosom can be minimized by draping a long shawl or stole over the shoulders to create an illusion of slimness and height.

– Know your figure type and lifestyle, and follow fashion only when it’s right for you.

– Avoid clothes that overwhelm your figure or personality – they should be as natural to your body as your hair or skin.

 – Avoid stark colors such as all white, bright colors like fire-engine red, large prints or big plaids — they will make you look bigger.

– Floor length clothes that touch the tips of the toes – either pants or dresses help elongate a large or stocky figure. Pants are only slimming when they fit properly and are not too tight, or too loose.

– Reduce the appearance of bulk by wearing lightweight fabrics – they are also more comfortable.

– Anything that creates a vertical line suggests slimness. Try wearing a shawl or extra long scarf that drops to the hemline or a full length sleeveless tunic over a dress or pants – they both leave a long narrow center opening that gives an illusion of verticality.

– Don’t get swept up in fads – buy fewer clothes that are classic, of good quality and flatter your body.

Until the nest time

  1. A lot of thanks for each of your labor on this blog. Kate loves conducting investigations and it’s obvious why. Many of us hear all about the dynamic way you deliver worthwhile ideas on the blog and even strongly encourage contribution from other people on that point and our child is really learning a great deal. Have fun with the remaining portion of the year. You are doing a useful job.

  2. Hello there, I found your web site via Google while looking for a related topic, your site came up, it looks good. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  3. Aw, this was a very nice post. In idea I wish to put in writing like this moreover ? taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article? but what can I say? I procrastinate alot and certainly not appear to get something done.

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
