Slim Your Legs, Tummy & Arms Without the Exercise

Exercise isn’t the only thing you have to do to get a great figure. Of course, you should always keep up with a regular exercise routine, at least for health’s sake, but there are a few fashion tricks you can pull off to make your legs appear taller and slimmer, your tummy flatter and your arms more toned.
1. Body Shapers
No mistery here…body shapers will obviously shape your body to look slimmer and more toned. The best brand out there is SPANX and although they cost a little more (about $100), they do the job like nothing else. Even celebs wear SPANX to tuck in their tummies.
2. Lengthen Your Legs
If you’re on the short side and want to add a little height, there is nothing better than pairing wide-leg pants with a pair of heels. Just make sure you pick a pair of pants that doesn’t accentuate your waist.
3. Fake a Small Waist
If you’re looking to shrink your waist, or at least look like you have a smaller waist, just wear a belt right above your hips when wearing longer tops and dresses. This will give the illusion of a smaller waist since the belt cinches it at the right spot.
4. Slim Your Legs
Putting on a pair of black tights or any dark colored tights for that matter will draw the attention away from your legs, as to make them look a lot slimmer. Pair them with boots and a skirt/dress.
5. Hide Your Tummy Bulge
This season you’re in luck because a lot of the tops in stores are the kind that will be banded at the waist which will hide your bulge and make it look like you have absolutely nothing! Pair it up with high-waisted pants.
6. Fake Slim Calves
If you’ve been out of the gym for a while, your calves might look a little out of shape. Thankfully, you can fake slim calves by slipping on a pair of heels. You don’t have to wear super high heels to achieve this - pretty much any heel will do!
7. SlimYour Arms
Believe it or not, arm shapers exist! This quarter-sleeve arm shaper will fit smoothly and discretely under your clothes to give your arms a slim, polished look.
8. Slim Upper Body
If you’re worried about a larger upper body or broad shoulders, a scarf or a shawl can help you minimize your problem area. Just wrap it around your neck whichever way you like and opt for lighter fabrics in the summer.
