Tricks to Make Your Waist Look Slimmer

If you’re unhappy with the size of your waist, but are having trouble losing weight, you can use fashion in order to create illusions.

More women do it than you’d think, so there’s no reason to be hesitant about it. Here are some of the best tricks to make your waist look slimmer

COLOUR 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

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

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

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

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

Buy high waist 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

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

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 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.
