We all have something we would like to change about ourselves and as women we all have common body image issues.2

Sometimes it can be frustrating when you’re shopping and you feel like nothing fits the way it should.

On the bright side, there are tricks to hide these figure challenges.

Next time you go shopping, try to remember the tips that apply to you to avoid common body image issues.

1. Tummy

Ladies, tummy issues are one of the most common body image issues women have with themselves.

Two things – first, high waisted anything is your friend because it will help to conceal a muffin top and «uck some excess tummy in.

Second, anything clingy or shiny is your enemy!

Lycra-like materials will bunch up around the rolls of the stomach and garments that have sheen to it will catch light and make that particular area look larger.

Another good tip is to wear darker coloured blouses to camouflage your stomach.

2. Short Thighs

Try wearing knee-length, high waist skirts and dresses with empire waists.2

Miniskirts and skirts/dresses that end midway through the thigh will cut your thighs in half emphasizing the lack of length in your thighs.2

However, skirts with high waists and dresses with empire waists will exaggerate the length of your thighs.

Also, the dresses and skirts that end at the knee cap will create a long, clean, smooth line.

3. Short Torso

Sorry girlfriend but you’re going to have to stay away from anything with a high waist.2

Instead, wear low rise pants/skirts with shirts and blouses that end at your hips or lower.

Also, try to avoid tucking your shirts/blouses in.

4. No Waist

You’ll have to create the illusion of a waist – cinching your waist with belts is a fool-proof solution!

Wrap tops also help to hint at a waist.

Stay away from tight, solid coloured tops as they don’t do anything for your figure.
