Color Blocking

Color Blocking Everyone knows that black is a slimming color. However, instead of buying a skirt that is plain black, you should invest in one that has black on the sides and another color in the middle. That way, it'll give your sides the illusion of being slimmer. It's a simple trick that every woman should try.


High Belts

High Belts The thinnest part of your waist should be right under your breasts. That's why you should rest your belt up there, instead of down under your stomach. It'll create the illusion that your waist is slimmer than it actually is.


Clothes That Fit

Clothes That Fit The biggest issue women have is with their bras. If you've been wearing the same one for a decade, it's time to buy a new one that will lift your breasts up, which will create the illusion of a longer waist. You also want to buy jeans and skirts that fit correctly, because if they're too tight, you'll get a muffin top and if they're too loose, they just won't look flattering.


Vertical Stripes

Vertical Stripes If you love stripes, make sure that you only wear vertical ones, because they'll make you appear taller. However, if you wear horizontal stripes, they'll make your waist look thicker. That's not what anyone wants, so make sure you avoid clothing with certain patterns.


High Heels

High Heels Heels do wonders for your posture, but they'll also make you look slimmer. If you're capable of walking in stilettos, then invest in a cute pair that you can wear around town. The more, the merrier.


High Waisted

High Waisted Buy high waisted skirts and pants in order to look like you have a slimmer waist and longer legs. They might feel strange at first, but they're a real fashion statement. Everyone will assume that you're trying out a new style, and will have no clue that you're creating the illusion of a slimmer waist.



Shapewear You can always rely on Spanx to make your waist look slimmer. There are so many different products available that will hold in your gut, shape your waist, and make you look as fabulous as possible. Don't be ashamed of wearing them, because more people have it on than you'd think.


Focus on the Top

Focus on the Top If you're more confident about your top half, wear a shirt or dress that shows off a bit of cleavage. That way, everyone's focus will be a little higher. The best way to get their eyes away from your waist is to make them focus on something you're proud of.


Pencil Skirt

Pencil Skirt Pencil skirts will emphasize your hips, which means that all the attention will be on them instead of on your waist. They also make your booty look fantastic, so no one will pay attention to the flaws you think you have.

If you're having trouble losing weight, you can always use these illusions to fool others into thinking that your waist is a bit slimmer than it actually is. That's the point of fashion, after all. What other tricks do you use in order to make your waist appear slimmer?

@ Misty that's exactly what I'm getting at. Thankyou for understanding. Wish others would.

@Sharon you are right. I had a great aunt ( who has passed) and she was deaf her whole life and back in the day they use to refer to them as "deaf and dumb" people. Same with the word retarded, hurtful labels that I think most people don't think of as being hurtful. It's never ending...

@sharon @cassieculbreth , thank you ladies for defending me , didn't realise I caused a slight hoohaa. Hiding your body with clothes although may make U feel better is not solution why can't women or people in general just strive to be healthy? @cici thanks for the compliment on my nose and mouth :)

My friends say I'm tall and built larger. Truth is I am overweight. I did loose 9kg dropped a dress size and feel more settled. However that cost me a lot of time and money with a personal trainer and a gym membership. Ives stopped that and gained 5kgs again. However I'm still getting complements about my shape and body. Why because I dress for it. Being healthy is important but understanding that healthy and have a little extra weight is ok, either due to child birth or medication. The spirit to this article is for women to feel that can look good whatever shape. I have a friend who is a Aus size 6 who turn size 16 due to pregnancy and stayed a size 10 for a year on her short frame she did look better, but I suggested a different style for her to try for that transition year and she looks back at pictures and loves how she looks. It's about the best you. And only you, can decide if you need to change.

Dumb is not a nice word to use there's people out there that get offended by it
