You always have to keep in mind that in order to look slimmer, make sure the clothes you wear flatter your figure. As much as possible, avoid stripes with horizontal lines because it's give the illusion of a fuller figure. Choose clothes with dark shades like black and gray. Dark colors tend to hide unwanted bulges and makes you look taller. Layering jackets and tank tops can accentuate your waist and bust and takes the attention away from your tummy. With accessories, belts make your waist look smaller, which also gives the effect of an hourglass figure.
