Anyone who has ever looked into a mirror knows that all mirrors were not created equal. Some mirrors seem just right, while others make you appear heavier or thinner than you really are. Since confidence in our appearance is based heavily on what we see in the mirror every day, it is something that has to be taken into account when buying a new mirror. "Skinny mirrors" are often found in clothing store dressing rooms so customers feel like the clothes they are trying on makes them look thinner. The same technique can be used in your own home if you desire a mirror that is going to make you appear thinner and boost your self confidence. Now, you just need to know how to find one of these skinny mirrors. (reference 1)
Travel to a department store that sells mirrors. Many of these stores will have an entire section devoted to mirrors.
Decide where you want to hang the mirror. The size and style you need depends on where you want that mirror to be located. A bathroom mirror is usually going to differ from a mirror designed for the bedroom. Rule out those that do not have the style you are looking for.
Set a budget. Determine how much you are willing to spend on a mirror. Rule out the mirrors amongst those in the style you are seeking that do not fall within your budget.
Look at yourself in the mirrors that you have not ruled out. Compare two mirrors at a time, side-by-side. Rule out the mirror that makes you appear heavier. Then compare the "skinnier" mirror with the next available one. Do these tests until you have determined which of the mirrors are skinny mirrors.
Purchase the skinny mirror with a style and price that you like best.
