5 OF THE BEST; ways women can look slimmer.

1 ACCENTUATE YOUR BEST BITS: To start dressing slim, you need to take some time to work out your body shape and think about what suits your figure.

Dresses that are nipped in at the waist and skim over the stomach and thighs can flatter curvier figures, for example, while those with larger legs may want to avoid calf-high boots. In fact, try to avoid any item that cuts off at the widest part of your body, such as cap-sleeved tops for those with larger arms.

2 WEAR THE RIGHT SIZE CLOTHES: While this may sound obvious, many people make the mistake of opting for a smaller dress size to make them feel slimmer or for larger, baggier clothes to help conceal problem areas. However, wearing ill-fitting clothes is one of the worst things you can do if you are hoping to look slim.

3 OPT FOR DARK COLOURS: Most women know the power of the little black dress for helping to create a slimmer silhouette; however, if you are fed up of wearing black for every night out, darker shades such as navy, dark purple and brown have a similar slimming effect.

4 TRY SLIMMING UNDERWEAR: Want to drop a dress size instantly? Take a tip from the celebs and choose some slimming underwear.

While they might not be the sexiest of items, underneath your outfit they will miraculously smooth out lumps and bumps and pull in any wobbly bits.

5 WEAR HEELS: IT'S a trick women have used for years. To look slimmer for a big night out, swapping flats for heels can make all the difference.

Heels instantly make your legs look longer and more toned and make you appear taller and slimmer. For a more comfortable alternative, try kitten heels or wedges.
