Every girl dreams of looking slimmer than she is (even if she is really skinny already...aaghh!). When summer arrives, we’re constantly worried about how our body looks in dresses, sleeveless t-shirts, shorts and skirts - basically everything that is quintessentially summer! If you have resolved to lose weight this year and not met your goals yet, here’s the cheat sheet you need. Presenting 6 no-diet figure fixes which will help you lose weight...just like that!
1. For a slimmer lower body
Pencil-fit silhouettes are designed to hug your figure. So if you’re bulky on your lower half, pick a pencil-fit skirt like this one to make your legs appear slimmer and for your figure to look like an hourglass. This piece is strategically tailored with seams to cover the problem areas on your hips and legs. You can team it up with a white ruffled shirt or a plain tank top and accessorize well for a formal look. Don’t forget your classic black pumps which will elevate your height, slimming you down twice as much ;)
2. Black to the rescue
The most common misconception is that bigger clothes will make you look slimmer. In reality, a form-fitting dress with a belt can instantly make you look thinner with the illusion of smaller waist and hips. The colour black is every girl’s hack to cutting flab and a cinched waist highlights the narrowest part of your waist. This dress can be paired with silver or golden jewellery and teamed with a pair of flats for a casual-yet-comfy look!
3. Long legs hack
Wearing a high-waisted pair of flared pants makes your legs look like they’re miles long! This beautiful piece has an intricate print and hence will suit short women on the heavier side. Avoid large prints since they can make you look bigger than you really are. A flared bottom also works for women who are heavy on the butt since it evens out your legs. Team these with junk jewellery and a kurta for an indo-western look.
4. Shrink your waist
Instantly make your waistline appear slimmer with this well-cut, sleeveless skater dress in an abstract print! The belt on the waist not only cinches the tiniest part of the area but also helps it appear skinnier than it actually is (since the rest of your figure flows in an inverted V from the waist, upwards and downwards). This is the perfect summer dress for Sunday brunches.
5. Goodbye love handles!
A blazer helps bring your outfit together and hides all the fat! Believe us, this is the best way to cover all the problem areas that make you uncomfortable. Slip on this smart striped piece with a plain tank top and a pair of jeans. It even glides smoothly over your love handles to conceal them. Blazers are versatile wardrobe staples and can be worn with dresses, skirts and pants. You’re welcome! ;)
6. Hide that midriff jiggle
This is a great trick to have people believe that you have no fat on your waist. A layered dress should be your go-to if you have toned legs but want to hide all the midriff fat. The solid colour has a slimming effect and the layers hide your problem areas. You can accessorise this cute number with sleek jewellery and nude wedges for a night out.
