TIPS: If you are SHORT and BULKY

Useful Tips!

ü  Clothing must fit well.

ü  Shoulder is likely to be your narrowest part, so it should be closely fitted.

ü De-emphasize the top-heavy figure by wearing simple, uncluttered styling for blouses, tops and jackets.

ü  Simple, soft draping, are advisable.

ü  One colour or a mix of soft tones is best. Proportion must be kept in mind.

ü  Simple dresses tend to give you a longer line.

ü  High heels are flattering as long as they are not grotesquely high.

ü  Attractive hose tends to emphasize the shortness of leg. Black, navy, brown are good colours to hide heaviness, but the colour is wrong if it calls attention to your heaviness by being out of the season.

ü  Single colour or tones of a single-color family are good.

ü  Wear medium solid prints rather than large, splashy prints

ü  A shorter jacket gives a leggier appearance.


ü  Skintight.

ü  Loose clothing makes one imagine all sort of unseen horrors beneath it.

ü  Avoid any soft at the collar and at the neck.

ü  Avoid front-pleated trousers, or pleated or dirndl skirts.

ü  Avoid pockets, neck/collar details, ruffles, pleats, gathers, tucks.

ü  Avoid breast pocket

ü  Don’t chop up your body with contrasting bold colors.

ü  You should wear nothing that is big, bulky or complicated.

ü  Never clutter up your neck; that tends to fore shorten your figure

How To Look Taller and Thinner!

§  Wear clothes that fit well (too tight or too loose clothes add pounds).

§  Wear solid colours, preferably in the same colour range, from head to toe.

§  Avoid stiff fabrics and nubby textures.

§  Wear darker tones in smooth fabrics with flat finishes.

§  Limit stripes to fine, subdued, and close-together versions.

§  Wear two-button jackets with natural shoulders.

§  Wear trousers with vertical pockets, which are more slenderizing than slanted pockets. Wear hemmed, not cuffed, trousers.

§  Wear trousers at the natural waist (never below). If needed, wear suspenders. Choose suspenders with buttons instead of clips.

§  Wear classic-length jackets, preferably without vests.

§  Be sure your tie touches the waistband and that it is medium in width.

§  Avoid busy patterns.
