Flatter Your Figure With The Right Clothes

Nov 21, 2007
We have always envied women with supermodel figures knowing that they could practically sport any outfit they want always looking picture perfect for any occasion. Some of us even starve ourselves just to attain the figure that we have been dreaming of. While it is perfectly good if you are slimming yourself (using the right procedures like exercise and a balanced diet) for health reasons, you can achieve a flattering look despite the fact that you may not have reached your targeted weight for now. You can practically look great in an outfit and be a head-turner with the right choice of clothes in terms of color, design, fabric and style to flatter your figure in just the right curves.

It is general knowledge that darker colors like black gives you a slimming figure so it is ideal to use dark colors for areas that you would want to minimize while you should do the opposite and choose bright and light colors for the areas that you want to emphasize. If you have big hips for example, you could wear a dark set of slacks and pair it off with either a white or pastel colored top to draw attention away from your problem area which is the hips.

Prints have ways of either creating the illusion of slimming you down or adding more weight. Horizontal or diagonal prints always create the illusion of a slim figure while vertical stripes can give you an expanded look. Solid colors would always be a safe staple in your wardrobe but prints can add some life and color to your ensemble. For a slimmer effect, select fabric with prints in a dark background.

Shiny fabrics are really very attractive looking especially for formal affairs but they have the tendency to also emphasize your flaws if you don't have an hour glass figure. Shiny fabrics have the tendency to give you an enlarging effect. Going for the duller finishes could give you a slimmer appearance.

Accessories or details on your outfit draw attention to that particular body part so if you want to accentuate your sexy waist then you could accessorize a belt that will emphasize it. You can draw attention for example to your well-endowed breasts by wearing an outfit that shows some cleavage. Avoid putting on accessories to problem areas that you don't have any desire to give emphasis on.

With a few simple tricks and tips, you are well on your way to feeling great and looking confident whatever your outfit may be.
