If most of your weight rests in your waist, wearing large tops will make your look even bigger. To shape your body and to whittle your waist, you should wear fitted clothing instead. A jacket with a banded waist will add shape to your figure and create the illusion of a smaller waistline.
A top with a high waist just below your bra line will draw attention to your bust and away from your waist. The loose flowing fabric of the top will also hide your tummy flab. Choose dark colored tops with vertical lines or patterns. Black, purple, brown and navy blue all have slimming effects.
Balance your look with medium to large accessories such as bags and watches.
