So, you have been torturing your tummy for over six months now? Or have you been overexerting your delicate body in the gym… only to get in shape for the weekend party? Do you feel that all the sweat and tension just doesn’t seem to take away any fat from you?

Looking slimmer is not as difficult as actually being so! Here is a little guide that will help you find temporary solutions to a rather permanent problem. So you do not have to worry about the occasional weekend celebrations while you are trying to slim down… which I am afraid, takes a longer time than expected!

1. Choose clothing all in one colour.
Generally speaking, long is slim. When you wear two strikingly different shades on the upper and the lower parts of your body, they seem to divide your figure into two-halfs. And you look shorter and plumber! So choose single colour clothing, preferably in a darker shade.

2. Wear black.
As advised earlier, choose a color in a darker shade, so black is certainly the best choice. It is called the sexiest colour for some reason! Maroon and deep blue are also good shades, to add some vibe in the attire.

4. Try to avoid shapeless clothing.
Contrary to what you are thinking, loose clothes make you appear wider. They are good for people from whom slimness screams out! For you a nice shapely gown will give a nice curvy shape to your figure. It is the best way you can transform your plumpness into sexy

6. Avoid tight clothing.
Remember, there is a difference between shapely and tight! Tight makes you bulge out! Particularly avoid tight fittings at the heavy areas. Basically, you need to choose softly tailored pieces that define but don't constrain. They will give you shape but will not overemphasize your body.

8. Avoid horizontal stripes. Consider vertical.
A simple rule of geometry - horizontal stripes will make you appear wider. You don't want people to measure your waist along the stripes, do you? On the other hand, vertical stripes will adore your long figure, making you look leaner.

So, beauty is not just skin deep… because you can always look more beautiful with a little use of brains! Just a little piece of extra tip:

Always stand up straight. Good posture will greatly enhance your look. Go, flaunt a beautiful figure!
