Tips to look Taller and Thinner
Why is it that we are never satisfied with our size or height?
Marilyn Monroe was considered to be the sexiest woman alive………but did she look like the anorexic clothes models we see in the fashion magazines of today?
Marilyn was 1.66m tall, and though her weight fluctuated, her average size was a 12! Personally I think she was gorgeous!
Well, since we can’t all be stick thin 1.8m (6ft) models, I’ve decided to share a few tips on how to look taller and thinner.
Wear the same colour from shoulder to toe, for example Jacket, pants, sock and shoe, or from waist to toe, e.g. Skirt/pants, hose, shoe
Wear brighter colours on top, darker colours at the bottom
Avoid patch pockets at hip level
Don’t wear your clothes too tight, elegantly loose (but not sloppy) is more slimming
Draw attention to the top by using colour, prints, jewellery, scarf, etc.
Avoid padded, bulky clothing
Avoid fluffy jumpers – adds bulk
Avoid tight tops with baggy pants, this simply emphasises your hips and draws attention to the bottom
Avoid pants with patch pockets
Don’t wear loud shoes or socks, this draws the eyes down
Don’t wear light shoes with dark pants, this draws the eye down
Simply wearing the right style for your body shape and size goes a long way to helping you appear taller and/or thinner. To find out how click here.
