Clothes That Help You Look Skinny

How do you look skinny when you feel fat? There are several ways that you can accomplish this with out going on a crash diet or hiding behind baggy clothes.

You'll be amazed at how the right clothes on the right body shape can change your life. You'll never have a “ I feel fat in these clothes " day again.

Changing your wardrobe is the first thing that needs to be fixed in order to look skinny. The cut of a shirt or the size of your pants can make a huge difference.

If you have a large bust, wearing a v-neck shirt will help make you look slimmer. Get rid of that boxy shape by tossing out crew neck shirts. Simple changes like this can make a world of difference.

Do you have a pear shape? Wearing the wrong pants can make you look fat when you're not. Wearing a skinny jean that fits perfectly around your hips and butt with a nice pair of boots will elongate your body instead of adding width.
