Written By: Cygstarz's Wife!
Most, if not all of my friends want to lose weight. Now I'm not saying they are all fat…most of them would like to simply tone up or lose a few pounds (me included!). Did you know that there are several things you can do to actually appear smaller!? Yes, my friends, there are several tips and tricks that will make you look as if you dropped a few pounds overnight. Obviously, nothing takes the place of actually losing weight, however, these tips and tricks are wonderful if you are going out for the evening and want to feel (and appear) just a wee bit thinner…instantly!
Invest in a GOOD Pair of Slimming Jeans!
There are several brands of jeans on the market today that claim to make you look smaller. Below are a few of my personal favorites! Obviously, finding a good pair of jeans can be difficult! Just because I love the jeans listed below doesn't mean that you will. However, if you are searching for jeans that claim to slim you down…I recommend giving the jeans below a try! After all, what do you have to lose but a few inches!
Lawman – Miracle Faith Slimming Jean: These jeans make you look one size smaller than you actually are. How? Well, they slim down your tummy and lift your rear (nothing like a good rear lifting!). I actually own a pair of these jeans and I really like them (and yes, I do look smaller…at least that's what my husband says). Made of 98% cotton denim and 2% spandex, these jeans are very comfortable! Personally, I like the fact they do not have pockets on the backside. No pockets, in my opinion, make me look smoother. You can only purchase Lawman Miracle Faith Slimming Jeans on-line, however, they are reasonably priced…which makes paying a few dollars for shipping less painful. These jeans also received excellent reviews…four and a half stars out of a possible five, to be exact!
Not Your Daughter's Jeans – These jeans are the latest rage when it comes to comfortable, slim-wear! Made with lift tuck technology, Not Your Daughter's Jeans make you look at least one size smaller instantly! These jeans fight gravity by lifting your backside…which of course, makes you look better. After all, nobody wants a saggy bottom! They also flatten your stomach. How? Well, Not Your Daughter's Jeans have a built in criss-cross panel that keeps your tummy in control (trust me when I say that I NEED tummy control!). The best thing about these jeans is that they are available in MANY different styles and colors (too many to list here!). If you are searching for a well made pair of slimming jeans…definitely give Not Your Daughter's Jeans a try!
Riders Slimming Jeans – Stacy London (from What NOT to Wear on TLC) is a fan of these slimming Jeans. Now Stacy is a fashion and fit expert…so she must know what she is talking about! Riders Jeans instantly slim you with a no-gap waist, tummy control panel and are made of stretch denim (which is slimming!). According to Stacy London one of the biggest mistakes women make when it comes to jeans is the rise. If you choose a rise that is too low for your figure…you will create a muffin top! Trust me, when it comes to jeans, no woman wants a muffin top…not pretty! Mid-rise jeans are your best bet if you have a "little extra" around the middle. Denim is the most versatile fabric when it comes to style as you can dress it up or down. Riders Jeans are available in many styles and colors! If you are searching for a pair of jeans that not only make you look slimmer but are stylish as well…check out Riders!
Shapewear is Your Friend!
Say goodbye to your Grandma's girdle as today's shapewear is not only lighter; it is more attractive as well. Afraid to wear that cute, clingy, summer dress for fear that your tummy will poke out? Worry no more! Shapewear has come a long way baby! Below are a few of my favorite shapewear companies and products.
Spanx by Sara Blakely – Spanx are THE BEST!!! Sold in stores such as Nordstrom's, Lord and Taylor and Bloomingdales (as well as on-line), Spanx products are designed to promote comfort and confidence in women. From thigh-shapers to seamless tanks…if there is a part of your body that you would like to instantly firm up or hold in…there is a Spanx product to fit your needs! Spanx swimsuits and products for men are also available! Be sure to check them out.
Dr. Rey Shapewear – You may have heard of Dr. Rey …he is the famous plastic surgeon that appears on "Dr. 90210" on the E! Channel. In 2007, Dr. Rey teamed up with Australian lingerie designer Bruno Schiavi and together they launched a shapewear collection for women. Though Dr. Rey is a plastic surgeon he wanted to invent a line of flattering shapewear to show women that they can look better without actually going under the knife! Dr. Rey's shapewear line offers women a unique range of body enhancing undergarments all of which are designed to enhance a woman's natural assets and hide imperfections. Reasonably priced, this shapewear line has it all. From thigh shapers to camisoles…if you want to lose a few inches instantly then the Dr. Rey Shapwear Line is for you!
Did you know that shoes can make you look slimmer? By wearing skinny high heels with pointy toes you actually make your legs look longer and leaner (and yes, even sexier!). A shoe that has a slender toe and at least a two inch stiletto actually extends the narrow silhouette of your calves. Bulky, clunky, heavy shoes tend to make your legs look shorter and bulkier…which is NOT the look you are going for. Another great idea (if you want your legs to look longer and leaner) is to match your shoe color to your leg. Though this may sound a bit weird…this little trick actually works…especially in the summertime! Simply coordinate tones to elongate your bottom half. When the weather is warm, wear neutral, skin-hued shoes with bare legs. This will make your legs appear longer and slimmer!
When it comes to looking instantly slimmer, products such as Not Your Daughter's Jeans and Spanx are gifts from heaven. They are great "quick fixes." However, if you want to feel good about yourself (all the time) then nothing beats a healthy diet and exercise! In the meantime, however, it is nice to know that there are products on the market today that not only instantly slim you…they are comfortable and affordable as well!
