  • Wear dark colors, like black, navy, brown. I like to wear a dark skirt and top with a jacket or bigshirt in another color.

  • Buy Spanx. The one that goes from your knees right up to your bra strap. It really works!

  • Eat less, go on diet or exercise regularly. Anything else is silly. You can never make yourself look thinner if you feel fat inside. I say work from the inside to the out. Your perfect the way you are today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • i wear stuff like spanx or corsets under my clothes because not only do they suck you in but the best thing hey do is make you stand up straight and i look about 10lbs heavier when i hunch over, also anything with an empire waist line helps flowy and a little longer on bottom but tighter (not porn star tight but just snug) on top always draws attention up instead of at your middle. but really you should try and focus some of your attention on feeling good about the way you look instead of trying to focus on changing it. im sure you look beautiful they way you are, remember your the only person who sees you the way you do, you probably look just fine to everyone else.
