3. The clothes you wear can deceive eye as to your true size, and thus make you look thinner:
a. Donít use clothes that are too colourful, as that will only attract more eyes on areas that you really would like to hide. Chose black or dark blue clothes, as they can make you look up to 5 kilos thinner.
b. When it comes to skirt length, for those who want to to look a bit thinner than they really are, you should choose knee length skirts. Shorter ones will show off just how fat those legs are, and longer ones accentuate thick ankles.
c. Another little trick for men and women is to use vertical stripes. That can apply to trousers, skirts, shirts, dresses, blouses etc. On blouses and shirts, use buttons, because they create a vertical line. The same effect can be reproduced with long zippers.
d. Loosen pockets, and avoid filling them up. Full pockets add bulk, not visual effect you are looking for when you are trying to look thinner.
4. Always be aware of position of your body and your posture. A correct position can make you appear up to three centimetres taller than you are.
Keep in mind these tricks and work on your illusion of looking thinner. Also, you can use your imagination to discover more!
