Get A Smaller Waist By Dressing Right
1. Try Wearing A Corset.
Worn under gowns as a figure enhancing item of lingerie in centuries gone by, the corset has gained renewed popularity recently for providing an effortlessly sexy silhouette, whether under other clothes or on its own. Steel-boned corsets (not as painful as they sound – promise!) do the best job of cinching in your waist, and can actually permanently reduce the size of your waist with prolonged wear!
2. Avoid Low-Rise Jeans
Low-rise jeans can be very unflattering to anyone who carries even a little weight around their middle, as they create the dreaded “muffin top” effect. High waisted jeans are much more forgiving as they cover up any excess fat around the hips, and draw attention to the waist. Worn with a tucked-in shirt, these type of jeans can be very flattering indeed.
3. Wear A-Line Dresses
A-line dresses are those which are tight at the hips, then flare out towards the hem, giving the illusion of a smaller waist. They are very flattering on almost every body shape, as they emphasize the waist, while skimming over any imperfections around the hips and thighs.
4. Wear Waist-Cinching Belts
Draw attention to your waist by wearing belts that emphasize and nip in your middle. They can be wide, skinny, jeweled, braided — whatever! Wear them over dresses, long tops and even winter coats to get an hourglass figure which gives the illusion of a smaller waist.
