8 Tricks To Looking Slimmer in a Swimsuit
1.Watch your lines.
When trying on swimsuit with lines, look for ones that flatter your figure. It’s a myth that horizontal lines make you look fatter. Actually, this study found that thick vertical lines (like the ones a referee wears) make a person look bigger than they are. No one wants to look like a referee at the pool.
As a good rule of thumb, look for lines (like the suit above) that accentuate your curves. Opt for stripes on the bottom and a solid on top to make you look slimmer or lines that give the optical illusion of a narrower waist.
2.Wear a wide-brimmed hat.
A wide-brimmed hat can draw attention away from any insecurities you may have, plus it’s a hot fashion accessory, and protects your skin from sun damage. Win, win, win!
3.Get a faux tan.
You’ll be amazed at how much toner and slimmer you’ll look with a little faux tan. It’s a trick that fashion models and body-builders use.
4.Avoid big prints.
If you’re a bold fashionista who loves fun prints, go for it! But go for small prints over large ones when choosing a suit that flatters your figure best. Large flowers or geometric shapes will make you look bigger as well. Try smaller prints like polka dots and patterns with a fun indie vibe.
5.Wear a dark bathing suit.
Just like that classic little black dress, dark colors are the most slimming. Black and navy blue will reliably give you that thinning effect you’re looking for.
6.Snag a lightweight wrap.
Want to hide those trouble spots but still want to look sexy? A wrap is your bestie, plus there are so many gorgeous options to choose from!
7.Wear your hair up.
Wearing your hair up in a swimsuit reveals your neck and makes you look longer and leaner.
It’s no secret that heels make you look taller and leaner, but it’s not too practical to wear heels to the pool or in that beach sand. Actually, it’s downright ridiculous! But you can wear wedges and lofty sandals to give you that slim effect and make your legs look great!
Don’t let the anxiety over wearing a swimsuit keep you from enjoying everything that’s great about summer. Splash into those waves, dive into the deep end, and sunbathe in a beach chair without a second thought of what you look like doing it. The biggest slimming secret of all is self-confidence, so go on ladies,rock summer!
How To Dress For The Beach If You’re Fat.
1.Wear Dark Colors
You’ve heard it before, and that’s because it’s true: dark, solid colors are your best friend. Does that mean you have to rock all black everything? Not at all. Opt for navy and shades of gray and charcoal too. The point is, you don’t want to draw attention to the pudge, and subtle, solid colors won’t be loud enough to turn your muffin top into a cupcake.
2.Avoid Tank Tops
Do yourself a favor and just don’t wear one. These look best on dudes with muscle definition in their arms and a slight build. You’ll look like you’re smuggling two Vienna sausages you’ve stolen from some poor boardwalk vendor. Accept the fact that you just can’t wear one without looking like an herb and get on with your life.
3.Longer Board Shorts
Don’t rock swim trunks. The elastic hem is not your best friend. Consider a proper pair of board shorts with a longer inseam of around 9 inches. Make sure they still hit just above the knee so you don’t look like you still live in the ’90s. These seersucker versions are summer appropriate, and the vertical stripes have the opposite effect of horizontal stripes: they’re slimming and will make you appear taller, not wider.
Consider ditching the crewneck tees for a slimming v-neck. You don’t want to get a deep v though, those are gross. A v-neck will slim your neckline and also give you a little more room to breathe. Stock up on them in basic white or darker colors like navy and gray.
Yeah, portly guys and Hawaiian shirts have been going well together for years, and that hasn’t changed. You just have to make sure to get one in a modern fit that doesn’t look like it was a hand me down from dad or made by Tommy Bahama. Reyn Spooner’s modern collection offers a variety of fits and fabrics that wouldn’t look out of place off the beach either. This Halu’a Pua shirt has the benefit of a subdued floral pattern and slimming vertical stripes. Consider it a two-fer.
Chances are, you’re gonna be sweating a lot in the summer. You know what really helps? Undershirts. Stock up on a few basic white tees and wear them underneath your button downs (for the beach, that means madras and other lightweight fabrics). They’ll wick away moisture and actually help keep you cool.
7.Make Sure Things Fit
Bigger guys often make the mistake of either buying clothes too big thinking it’ll make them look smaller. No, you shouldn’t have to squeeze into a smaller size, just wear what actually fits you. The shoulder stitches should sit on your shoulders, and yes, your gut might be a little visible, but that’s because you have one, and there ain’t no hiding it. Whether it’s board shorts or a T-shirt, stuff just has to fit right. You don’t want your shorts to be too big that they’ll easily come off in the water, and you don’t want to be swimming in your tee, either.
8.Stand Up Straight
Great posture does wonders for the body, in addition to tightening your core muscles (you know, that area where your six-pack would be had it not been for genetics and/or a steady diet of deep-fried Snickers bars), it just feels better, makes you look more confident, and yes, a little thinner.
9.Keep Your Shirt On ‘Til You Hit The Water
Ashamed of your moobs while your buddies are tossing the frisbee by the beach? Are they as bad as Jack Nicholson’s? Feel free to keep your shirt on, but at the very least take it off before you dive in the water. Nothing’s more of a dead giveaway that you’re a dude insecure with his body than the token chubby guys with soaked shirts. It’s the ocean bro. It doesn’t judge you. If you’re that self-conscious, maybe the next tip will help the most.
10.Embrace It, Or Lose It
The point is, there might be a few ways to make you look thinner, but once that shirt comes off and it’s just you and your bathing suit, there’s no hiding anything except the stuff that you’ll probably get a ticket for showing the world. So have fun anyway, or start deciding that you’re going to run a few laps. Alternately, you could just do you, pop open a couple of brews, eat a burger off the grill, and just have a damn good time at the beach. There is no correct body type for partying. So stop being embarrassed by your body and instead just start being funny. Zach Galifianakis gets chicks all the time… and he also looks pretty confident in a red swimsuit.
