Loose Sweaters

Wearing loose sweaters is a great way to not only keep warm but it can be for a casual or dressed up look.  The long sweaters cover the sides of your hips making you appear less wide.

Try pairing with skinny jeans or leggings with a fitted shirt.  Tall boots go great with this look and can also make your legs appear longer and slimmer.

A-Line Dresses

Wearing a dress which is a-lined can make you look as many as 15 pounds lighter.  The flattering thing about this type of dress is that it makes your entire shape look proportionate and flatters the hips by covering them with a bell shape.

Since the waist is fitted in addition to the flared skirt, it makes the waist appear slimmer and the legs look longer.  This is a look which can be worn to a fancy event or dressed down with a pair of tennis shoes. For even more of a slimmed waist, try wearing a belt which will cinch the waist smaller.

Loose T-Shirts

Loose t-shirts are a must have for covering up if you have a few extra pounds on top that you’d like to conceal.  They can make a great trick for appearing slimmer after giving birth.  Try tucking just a corner into the front of your jeans for a relaxed and trendy look.

Wearing with leggings can also be a great way to rock a loose t-shirt.  Comfortable and flattering, these make great slimming staples for your closet.  You should always have a few cute loose t-shirts on hand in a variety of colors.

Dark Colors

Wearing dark colors is one of the best ways to camouflage the parts of yourself which you would prefer to conceal.  Since dark colors make you look smaller it’s helpful when you are wearing tight fitting clothes to make sure that it’s dark.

Bathing suits, long gowns, and tight leggings are almost always best in black.

Wear Shapewear

Shapewear is something that can smooth your tummy and take as many as 4 inches down from your hips or waist.  Try wearing under form fitting clothing for an extra tight silhouette.  

Some people don’t just save it for special occasions but wear it on a daily basis under their normal everyday wear.
