I am slim, but I haven't much of a waistline. What exercises help define a waist?

What have you done that's actually helped. I jog, but i need to target getting my waist back.

Also, I like bikinis, but do you think that will draw attention to my lack of a waist. What kind of bathing suit would flatter my current figure.

Thanks for any advice.

  • Sit on your arse and eat ice cream. Your butt will get bigger, hence making your waist seem smaller... Problem solved.

  • Side crunches will tighten your obliques making your waist appear smaller

  • I feel stupid, but I don't understand this question at all lol. So your upset with your "lack of a waist"? Isn't that a good thing? I'm confused

  • I want an hour glass shape. I want a more defined waistline, or to at least create the illusion of one with the right swimsuit.

  • Find a retro bath suit that highlights you hips, it creates the illusion of a waist. Hips look bigger so your waist looks smaller

  • Avoid horizontal stripes. Try to find a bikini with ruffles or ruching and padding. It will create more volume and make you look curvier.

  • staci - you can lay on your side and "crunch" to the other side, but usually I lay on my back knees bent and bend one elbow/shoulder towards the opposite knee. If it's too easy there are a bunch of variations (lifting your legs off the floor, bicycling your legs while you crunch, etc.)
