  • If you are heavy on the bottom, wear a solid color on your bottom half. Stay away from patterns and bright colors. Wear patterns on top to detract attention from your lower half.

  • If you are heavy on top, reverse this. Wear bottoms that have more detail, and tops that are simple and plain.

  • To give yourself the appearance of a waist, wear longer, fitted shirts that come just below the lower belly. Wear a wide belt or scarf around your waist area.

  • Do not wear clothes too loose. This does not camouflage, but only gives the appearance of sloppiness.

  • Do not wear clothes that are too tight either. We do not to overly accentuate bumps or bulges.

  • Wear heels. They make you taller and that usually means slimmer.

  • Spanx are great for slimming you down. They are comfortable and can make you appear 3-4 sizes smaller.

  • With pants wear a slightly flared leg so that you do not look thigh heavy. This will give your leg a balanced look all the way down.

  • Always choose dark jeans. A cut that goes slightly above the belly button, with a light flare in the leg will be most flattering.

  • Pockets of pants should be high up on the rear to accentuate the buttocks.

  • To hide a variety of sins wear a skirt with a slight flare. Stay away from clingy fabrics.

  • Wear a tank with another shirt on top for a layered effect. Tops that have a cut that tapers toward the waist give an hourglass effect.

  • Wearing pants with vertical stripes are great.

  • Fitted suits that have vertical striping and a tapered waist are great. Make sure it fits. Wear a fitted tip underneath.

  • Do not expose too much cleavage. Tops should fit, but not be overly tight.

  • Do wear v-necks and oval shaped tops. These cut into the body to give a slimming effect.

  • If you wear a baggier top, wear a fitted bottom.

  • Wear half sleeves that are fitted to cover trouble spots.

  • Shorts should be fitted and slightly flared. They should extend to the knee to create a look of length.

  • Get bras and underwear that fit. Bulges that are coming out of all areas are not slimming or attractive.

  • A pencil skirt will work if there is a slight flare on the bottom, and the top is longer, belted and somewhat fitted, or flowy and soft.

  • Try on many different styles. Be real with yourself. Look in the mirror in the department store and really be critical. Ask yourself if you would like this on someone else of the same size.

  • Do not be afraid to go out of your style zone. Being up to date and stylish will detract from any perceived flaws you may have.
