10 Tips to Make You Look 10 Lbs Slimmer

Ok mommas I cannot lose the 10 lbs that I need to lose so I have decided to find work arounds.

Here are 10 tips on how to dress 10 lbs slimmer. (Hey it is the next best thing plus I can eat a cookie.)

  1. Cover those bat wigs – If your arms have those little bat wings underneath or are just a tad on the flabby, misshapen side wear a shrug or cardigan with tops that expose the upper part of your arm.  Choose t-shirts or blouses that cover that part of your arm shrug

 

 

 

2.Choose the right shoe – no ankle straps, they cut you off at the ankle and make you look shorter. Slimmer cut or kitten heels help elongate your look. Avoid chunky shoes if you are self-conscious about your legs

3. Slimming Jeans– they are by no means easy to find good ones, but really apply yourself. Try on as many brands & sizes as needed until you find the ones that give you a nice flat front and don’t give you muffin top. And remember the golden rule – darker is better

4. A line or Empire Waist – this cut of dress does wonders and a bonus is you do not have to suck in all day.

5. Wear a belt – I know women with a little meat on them tend to shy away from belts but they help so so much. If you are wearing a dress make sure you choose a bigger belt (no skinny belts) something that provides a corset type of look.

6. Shapewear – I know you hear me say it all the time, but it is so true and so easy. Go invest in a descent tummy, butt, thigh (whatever your problem area is) shaper. In fact I give this advice so often I am not even putting a picture.

7. Do you have big boobies that you want to minimize? – Check out last weeks post   for proper bra fit, an absolute must . Also V-necks are great. If you are wearing a button down try a cute tank

8. Larger jewelry – a big stylish statement necklace can make you look taller and it draws attention to areas where you want people to look

 

 

9.Monochromatic – all one color (tan, white or neutrals) can give you a polished, long & lean look

10. Longer sweaters and cardigans – they cover all the bumpy places and just look awesome.

By Just your average momma

Hi There,
My name is Kris. I am a full time working married working momma of 3 Cherubs. They are 18, 16, & 12. My to my dismay I am 48.
I am your pretty average mom. I love dark chocolate, I am tired and cranky quite often, I am about 10 lbs too heavy and I am crazy in love with my family. I am not particularly artistic or talented, although I am a pretty good cook. I am an OK wife and momma on my best days. I have strong faith, but falter daily. I am not at all feeling sorry for myself, in fact I like some me quite a bit. I tell you this because I am surrounded by this amazing group of beautiful artistic talented women, who are great mommas and wives, who have beautiful faith and you know what? They think they are just average mommas too. So I am taking my average hands on experience and throwing it out for all you other average mommas.

  1. This is great, thanks so much for sharing! I am forever trying to get rid of that last ten pounds too, only to feel like I gain ten more. Sometimes it isn’t about losing the weight but about the way you feel after you have done it. Finding clothes that fit you right and are fit for your body style can make a person feel ten times better about themselves. Some of these things I didn’t even know, the necklace making you look taller is my favorite! I like to accessorize and now I feel I have a reason to! Thanks again for all the great information I am eager to read more of your blogs.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words. I totally agree about how you feel. At this point, for me, it is all smoke and mirrors. If there is something particular you would like me to write about let me know. xoxo
