Most women, no matter what their height want to look a little taller. There
are a number of little tricks to make yourself appear taller. Check out ways to
add an inch or two (atleast) inches to your height.
The first thing that needs to be taken care of is the extra
fat around the belt, if any. Don't use the excuse that
it is middle age spread and that it is natural. Losing
five to ten pounds will do good to your health besides giving you a taller
appearance. While you are working off that extra
ten pounds, pick up some new outfits that are not baggy.
Pay attention to your posture. Without our Mom's
constantly telling us to stand up straight, we tend to forget and for some
reason, slouching simply feels comfortable. Unfortunately, it also makes you
shorter than you actually are.
to dress in the same color from head to toe. Choose a color that is dark
and complements your skin tone. Dressing in black
or navy is fine as long as the outfit is not tight. Even though black is
slimming, if it worn tight it will
show bumps that you would rather leave unnoticed.
high heels 2 to 21/2 inches to give you extra height. Dont wear heels
that are too high or you will look out of balance.
wearing hats. Hats have a tendency to make you appear shorter.
choosing a sweater avoid those of a bulky nature and opt for those that
are thin. As well as bulky sweaters, fur coats or layers of clothes will
also create the illusion of pounds and make you appear shorter.
Wear clothes that suit your body type and are form fitting. A lot
of women believe that loose clothing will make them appear smaller but in
reality it does just the opposite. Clothes that are tailored to fit your
shape will have a much more slimming effect and will add height.
clothes that have vertical lines, such as single-breasted jackets and
avoid cropped pants and horizontal lines.
Chinese collar (closed neck) makes you look tall, but avoid it if
you have broad shoulders.
Try slim pants that follow your thighs and behind closely.
shirts into pants for your legs to look longer. Avoid wearing wide belts.
Wear belted jacket and tops you can clinch in.
Don't wear skirts that are knee length, they will make your legs
look short. Flat /wedge heels are best for you. Full length skirts will
compliment your petite frame.
While choosing a swimming costume go
for a plunging neckline which slims the torso while high-cut sides
