Your body shape and size are different than most other people. While almost everyone has at least a few physical characteristics that they would love to alter or eliminate, it may be possible to hide features that make you feel insecure in your own skin and that complement your positive features. As you pick out clothes going forward, focus on these exceptional tips to look and feel your best.
The colors and patterns of your clothing fabric have a huge impact on your physical appearance. Consider that bright, bold colors may draw attention to areas that you feel insecure about. Stripes and other horizontal patterns may create the visual effect of the body being wider than it is. Darker colors may make you appear to be slimmer than you are. Many clothing items have multiple colors and various patterns. Trying on your clothes and getting an honest opinion from a friend about how flattering each item is can help you to find the right colors and patterns for your apparel.
Likewise, some materials are more flattering than others. Consider that silk flows beautifully over every curve, and its sheen seemingly magnifies those curves. However, if you have extra curves, pooches, and rolls that you want to hide, silk is not the best option. Materials should have enough give so that they are comfortable to wear, but they also should not draw unnecessary attention to the parts that you want to hide.
The style of the clothing can likewise accentuate positives or draw attention to areas of concern. If you are developing loose skin around your chest and lower neck, wearing a V-neck shirt is not the most ideal option. You may also not want to wear a sleeveless shirt if your upper arms are flabby rather than tone. Some people will continue to use clothing to conceal areas of concern over their entire life, but another idea is to address those problem areas through plastic surgery. For example, liposuction targeting your upper arms could help you to look better and feel more confident when wearing sleeveless tops and dresses.
Many people would love to wear every fashion trend that comes along, but many trends are well-suited for specific body types and shapes. Rather than leaning only toward popular trends, look for clothing that has the right characteristics to look great on your frame.
