Women all over the world, of every age, race, and nationality, have one thing in common. All of them have “fat” days.

Sometimes it’s a bloated feeling around “that time of the month” or maybe it’s a Monday morning hangover from too many late night nachos. Or it could just be a busy, stressful time in life when appearances at the gym are rare and fast food is king.

No matter the reason, all women want to look their best, and finding some quick slim-down solutions is key. However, there’s no need to go on 500-calorie starvation diets, relegate one’s self to a juice-cleansing, or live at the gym for the next 36 hours.

There are tons of fashion solutions to give a slimming illusion.

Choosing clothes and accessories to make a woman look thinner is typically about focusing on the right kind of patterns, fit and cut for each woman’s unique body proportions.

It is camouflaging some of the “wobbly bits” and emphasizing the attractive attributes.

Of course, a healthy dose of self-confidence is the linchpin for pulling off any outfit. Check out five simple style tricks any woman can do to look five to ten pounds slimmer in just minutes.

1. Wear clothes that fit.

One of the most important things a woman can do is to choose clothes that are the right size for her body. Big, baggy clothes do not hide a fuller figure. In fact, they accentuate it.

2. Use dark colors to cover the most unflattering parts of the body.

There is a reason why people say black is slimming. They say that because it's true. However, women don't have to shed everything colorful in their wardrobe. Using a dark color over the areas of the body that a woman is uncomfortable with can camouflage that area and draw the attention to her assets in other places.

3. Use shapewear.

Shapewear is not just for overweight women. Women of all sizes have decided that Spanx is not a trend and have wholeheartedly latched on to the shapewear movement.

Shapewear is great way to hide your extra fats as they provide you a perfect body shape and enhance your beauty. I have recently buy some shapewears for myself and they are really comfortable and affordable.
