Fat Clothes

Many women wear boxy, oversized clothing in the effort to camouflage imperfections. These styles do cover the rolls and they also add volume to your body, making you look 10, 20 or even 30 pounds heavier than you are.

Here are some common styles that make you look bigger than you are. Avoid them at all costs!

• Tops, jackets and sweaters that are longer than three inches below your hipbones look like they will camouflage your hips and bottom. However, these styles actually make those areas look wider.

• Pants with pleats at the waists or hips are supposed to camouflage your tummy area. Actually, this style adds bulk to the hips and tummy and makes these areas look bigger.

• “Skinny jeans,” leggings and bike shorts fit tightly across the hips, butt, thighs and calves. These styles of pants turn your hourglass figure into a diamond shape, with the widest part across your hips and bottom. In this case, a diamond is NOT a girl’s best friend. Yes, those pants do make your butt look big!

No matter your size or figure “flaws,” flattering clothing does exist! Here are some styles that will work way better.
