Many of us feel a little self conscious of our bodies and wish that we could lose a few pounds. But the way that you dress has a big impact on how you look and wearing the right womens clothes can shed pounds visually without even stepping inside the gym.

There are two key aspects to looking slimmer and wearing clothes that really flatter. The first is to choose clothes that lengthen and slim the body as a whole, the second is to wear clothes which hide, disguise and balance out areas of the body that are disproportionately larger than the rest. By making the whole of your body appear in proportion, you will automatically look slimmer and more streamlined.

Many people religiously stick to black clothing to make themselves look slimmer but actually there are plenty of other alternatives that can make you look slimmer. In fact any colour of clothing can look great if you choose the right style for your body shape. If you are struggling to move away from black, try navy, dark purple or dark grey which are all versatile and slimming alternatives.

One of the secrets of looking slimmer is to choose clothing that fits perfectly. Whilst you may think that baggy clothes help to hide bulges, they actually make you look bigger and bulkier. Clothes that are too tight are also unflattering as they tend to show and cause unsightly bulges and a give a lumpy silhouette.
