While there’s still no magic pill we can take to drop the kilos or body sucking device that can completely change our body shape, there are some ways that we can create the illusion of a slimmer, leaner body. Just a couple of changes to a wardrobe can help to slim anyone down in a big way. These are the things we love to do in order to slim, tuck and hide the parts of our body we don’t want the whole world to see!


1. Create a lengthening illusion by going vertical

Choose long scarves and long line cardigans to drape over outfits, making the body look longer and slimmer. Our picks are:

2. Choose prints and pair them with something simple 

Prints can make the wearer look slimmer if they’re worn in small parts with great support neutrals. Try a plain bottom with a printed top or vice versa. Both of the pieces below would look great and fresh with white pants or a white T Shirt.

3. Go back to black if you don’t like prints

If prints aren’t your thing go for simple neutrals with a base of black – you can always dress it up with bright accessories.

4. Draw attention away from the body

Then you team those plain pieces with big, bold jewellery. It draws the attention upwards from the body to the face which on almost everyone is the best feature!

5. Skim the hips and lengthen with tunic tops 

Tunic tops are wonderful for slimming. They skim over the hips and bottom, two parts of our bodies that we are often a little uncomfortable with. This creates the illusion of a slimmer and smoother figure.

  1. Ok, but look at the size of the girl modelling the waterfall cardie! Size 8, why would she want to look any lighter?

  2. Love it when they say “Skims over the hips and bottom -two parts of the body we are often uncomfortable with”! Size 8 bottom, size 14 top! Deal with that, fashion experts!

  3. You must be looking in my wardrobe except for the black dress – being short I’d look like a fruit bat in full flight! Ha ha. Be brave ladies – try floral comfy pants, try waterfall jackets/cardigans – hide a multitude of sins!

  4. Please put a size 12/14 to model to see how it would REALLY look!

  5. A model that was a bit more like the average woman over 60 would give us a better idea of what the clothes would look like on us. In saying that I do like the items you displayed.

  6. Not very realistic when you use someone a size 10 to model,it’s like cosmetic companies using 30 yr olds to promote anti wrinkle face cream

  7. Photo in grey jacket is so thin she rattles when she walks if you are trying to sell us fatties how to dress slim at lesst us large models.

  8. Rubbish, these ‘clothes’ look like you are in a sack.especially if you have a large bust , a big sack
