Depending on our body shape, we all have areas of our bodies that are our trouble spots. No matter what your weight or height, women of all sizes need help in camouflaging certain spots. I have some tips for you on how you can accentuate the positive while taking attention away from the negative, simply by altering your clothing. Just wearing black is not the answer, so please check back daily as I will be covering a different area of the body each day: thick waistline or tummy pouch, big thighs, big butt, wide hips, flabby upper arms, small breasts.
Today we'll discuss some tips on how to dress to deal with big thighs. This is a problem area for so many women, so if you are one of them, you're not alone. Whether they are heavy or simply muscular from years of exercise, or you have a genetic predisposition to that area of your body being larger, I have a few tricks to streamline those thighs.
1. To make your legs look longer and leaner, wear at least a two-inch heal; they do wonders for elongating your legs and help to accentuate the muscles in your calf which helps your legs look better.
2. When you choose a bathing suit, opt for one that is high-cut at the thigh because that creates an illusion of longer, leaner thighs. Darker colors are preferred for maximum slimming effect.
4. Buying jeans can be a challenge because many styles have legs that tend to be skin tight. Opt for more of a classic fit rather than a straight fit with a flare at the bottom. Also, no side pockets; they tend to accentuate the hips. Best to buy jeans with flat, front pockets. Do not buy them too tight it's just not flattering.
5. Making your shoulders look subtly wider can create the illusion of the balanced figure. Softly-padded shoulders can do this nicely as can boat-neck tops.
5. Avoid bright-colored bottoms because the eye will focus there first. Best to select a light or bright top and darker bottom. You also want to avoid horizontal lines on your tops because they are widening to your figure.
6. Avoid clingy knits like sweater dresses.
7. Avoid tight tops that emphasize the fact that your hips are wider than your shoulders. Sometimes this is a matter of the style of the top; so try it on and decide.
Paying attention to balance is really the trick. Take a photo of yourself for a before and after test. In the first photo you should wear something wrong for your figure, like a horizontal striped top and light pants. Then implement the better choice (e.g. solid boat-neck top and darker jeans) for your after photo and see how you look. With a little practice, you can become an expert at enhancing your figure.
