How To Dress In The Event Of Temporary Weight Gain

Next » « Previous


Tips for dressing with weight gain include:

  • Monochromatic dressing - dressing the body in one color. Dressing in the same color from head to toe helps to streamline the appearance of the body. If you prefer not to dress in one color, consider choosing color tones that are closely matched. This will still have the same effect.
  • Dressing in dark colors such as navy or black creates a thinner appearance.
  • Women may want to consider matching the color of their hose to their shoes.
    • Matching the color of a skirt, hoses, and shoes will elongate the look of your legs and make them appear thinner.
    • If you are wearing a print, pick out colors that match the background when choosing hose and shoes.
  • Men and women should consider wearing vertical stripes.
    • They will elongate the body.
    • Avoid horizontal stripes because they will accentuate your weight gain.
  • Consider wearing loose fitting clothing.
    • A long fitting jacket can hide figure flaws for both men and women.
    • A loose fitting vest can help conceal your waistline.
    • Tight clothing will emphasize your weight gain.
  • If you have a chubby neck, men may choose a V neckline and women a V or scoop neckline. This will create the appearance of a face and neck that look longer and leaner.
  • To draw attention to the face and away from the body, women may wish to wear a necklace and matching earrings.
  • Consider purchasing "every day" clothes made from stretchy fabrics. You might choose to purchase items with an elastic waistband which will provide some additional room if you continue to gain weight.
