Despite the message in the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada", you don't have to be a size 4 to look and feel thin. I have met many who are a size 4 on top, and a size 10 on the bottom, and feel anything but thin. Sometimes our proportions are slightly out of balance, using the art of illusion, here are 4 ways to balance your shape and create a fabulous fit - whether you are a size 4 or a size 14.
1. Enlarge upper body (thereby minimizing lower body) with lighter brighter colors, horizontal stripes, and design details on the shoulder.
2. Enlarge the lower body (and minimize upper body) with wide leg pants, horizontal stripes, and patterns.
3. Draw attention to the middle (creating the illusion of a slimmer waist) with contrasting colors or patterns up the middle, and jewelry or other design detail at the waist and up and around the face.
4. Visually enlarge the waist to balance a larger bust and hip area with a solid horizontal belt, elastic, or line at the waist.
Not sure what your figure type is? Where you could use a little extra something to create balance? Tired of waiting on the weight to look and feel terrific? The Fabulous Fit Clinic is just a click away! Or call/text 385.229.6297.
