There are a few simple tips to help people look trim if they want to, without having to constantly be on a diet.

.

1) Avoid stripes that go across. They only make you look wider. If you wear stripes, it’s better to wear stripes that go down (vertically).

2) Have your hair pulled back from your face. It makes the face look narrow. It doesn’t have to be a pony tail. There are many other styles.

3) When wearing trousers, let the top fall past your bum. It not only covers the bum but gives you a trimmer look.

4) When you wear jeans, avoid details/designs around the thigh area. It only emphasises the size of the thighs – which are never as slim as the legs.

5) Wear a Spanx, but ensure it is comfortable and one is enough. Voluptuous Octavia Spencer over did it by wearing 3 sets of Spanx to the SAG awards in Feb 2012 and felt so uncomfortable in them....Aaaawh.

She won an award, but sadly couldn’t party afterwards. In an interview with Talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres she said she had to cut the celebrations short because in her words:

“I was being pinched in places I didn't know possible by shapewear.”

So, please ladies, one is enough. I have never worn them, but from reivews, they do tuck things in neatly. Octavia is below, looking beautiful at the SAG Awards 2012. (Screen Actor Guild Awards)..... and for the record, she wasn't the only one who was wearing a Spanx at the Award Ceremony. They are popular.

In a nutshell – select your clothes carefully. Some clothes are so flattering but some just show all bumps and bulges. A good example is below. You can find more about this miracle dress in this Hub.

Wonderful tips, Lady E.

I have also observed that pockets on the back of the jeans helps give a smaller look for people wide around that area.

voted up as interesting/useful.

Woah 3 pairs of spanx at once! I didn't even know that was possible lol. Good tips, I like the one about not wearing jeans with designs on the thigh. Those are definitely a no-no. Voting up :)

Hi Alexis, 3 is a lot. We women go through a lot of pain sometimes to look fit, but I feel for her. She was going to pick up an Award and wanted to look her best.

Good to see you. Take Care. :)

Have a "skin head" hair cut. Very low hair cut.

Hold you stomach in. (P/s remember to breathe) Lol.
