I was wondering which fabrics I should choose to help me look slimmer and which ones to avoid? Many thanks, Paula.
I would suggest you stay clear of any synthetic fabrics that are thin and hug the body -think skim rather than cling! Opt for more structured fabric such as cotton or a denim but do avoid stretch denim as it will do your shape no justice. Other fabrics to avoid are chunky knitwear and thick cord fabrics.
Try and ensure that the fit of the garment is good and get familiar with your body shape as this will help you choose clothes that will flatter your overall shape.
