Well we can’t really be Candice Swanepol or Rosie Huntington In real life, but at least we can look it in pictures right? There are many softwares to use to make us look slimmer in pictures but sometimes they are too time-consuming and complicated to use. Let me introduce to you the top ten ways to pose to look slimmer !
We will start with the ultimate golden rule, which is having a Good Posture for photos. Stand straight and stretch your body. It will stretch your tummy vertically and make them look instantly smaller. Straight shoulders also makes you look taller giving the overall effect of looking slimmer.
Pageant T-shape. Everybody can do the pageant T shape with your legs. Place your left feet in front of your right feet to form a T-shape. Your body will also have a slight twist due to the placement of the legs making your waistline look smaller. This pose does wonders and it instantly gives you an S-shape. Lift your butt, tighten your muscles and push your boobs up. This makes you look instantly slimmer, toned, tall and curvy with assets. 🙂
Point one of your legs when you pose. It brings attention to that leg, lengthen them and make them look slimmer. You can do this with a side pose or a cross-leg pose.
When you are seating down and taking a picture, make sure that your legs never touches the seat, either extend it forward, or cross it to the side. You should feel slight discomfort in your butt and stomach as you hold your legs there. It is worth it as the pictures will make your legs look slim and endless.
Wear high heels at least 3.5 inches tall. If you know you’re going for an event where there will be loads of photo taking, wear HIGH heels. High heels stretches your calve muscles and lifts your butt up high.
Keep your chin up. Always. Or at least maintain an eye level with the camera. You do not ever want to look like you have a double or triple chin. Another reason why you should leave your chin up is because it elongates your neck and makes you look taller and more confident. So keep your chin up ladies!
If you are taking a group photo in a straight line, semi-circle or v-shape, stand as near to the center as you can. This is because those at the side will look wider. This is especially so in a v-shape or semi-circle formation. Remember, the nearer you are to the camera, the bigger you seem.
Make sure to leave a gap between your hands and body when you pose for a picture. Do not close them tight to your body, it will make you seem bigger as if your hands width are a part of your tummy width. Sucking in your tummy and putting ur hands on your hips will make you have an S-shape and also lift your boobs up. They will also create the illusion that you have a smaller waistline.
Contouring your legs and face. This trick is often used in studio shoots and pageantry. Have you watched the video on YouTube for Kim Kardashians face contouring makeup to make her nose appear sharper and jawlines more defined? For your legs, use a leg foundation spray on your legs and then use a body luminizing powder to shine your legs in a long straight line down the shins. In this way the brighter parts will be shown more obviously, while the darker parts subtler. It will give the illusion of skinny, long and glowy legs.
Well pictures can always lie with the advancement on softwares and smart selfie cameras. If you really want to look slimmer in pictures in the long run, why not start exercising and eat a little cleaner? You can photoshop and edit your pictures and pose in a certain way but when people see you in person, they’re gonna see the real you.
I know people have heard this a million times but honestly, if you want to make a permanent beneficial change in your life start moving and get healthy and you’ll glow from inside out. When you start a healthy lifestyle, your legs will naturally be more toned and your waistline trimmed down.
