How to Look Slimmer in Photos?

Updated: Aug 18, 2021

Posing for a selfie is everywhere in our daily lives. We all have in mind the desire to appear as elegant as a supermodel. The good news is that in addition to knowing how to dress so that you look slimmer, you can also make yourself look good in photos. Here are a few tips to follow.

Lift your chin up and lift your head

If you've ever wondered why every woman you know raises her head when someone takes a picture of her, it's because she tries to avoid the appearance of a double chin. Try!!!

Stand at a 45-degree angle

If you want to look slim in photos, do your best to avoid being photographed from the front. Instead, turn slightly to the side, place one foot in front of the other so that your front foot is pointed toward the camera, then tilt your body weight onto your back foot.

Put a hand on your hip

Another thing a lot of the women in photos do is put their hands on their hips. This prevents their arms from being stuck to their body. Which can make the arms look chunky and weigh down their figure.

Take a picture from above

Another technique to appear slimmer in your photos is to photograph yourself from above. From above, orient your camera or smartphone slightly. This technique is ideal for lengthening your neck and your figure.

Stick your tongue to the roof of your mouth while smiling

This trick sounds weird to you, doesn't it? However, if you position your tongue so that it touches your palate, preferably the area just above your teeth. While smiling, your facial muscles will help tighten the areas under your chin. This way, your face and neck will appear more chiselled and elongated. Your facial features will also be more defined.

Use a self-tanner for a "healthy glow" look

You might not know it, but a darker complexion can help your body appear firmer and more toned. And can also help hide blemishes such as cellulite. Of course, applying a self-tanner isn't always easy, and not everyone has the time or funds for regular maintenance.

Dress in darker colours

While you don't need to dress in black around the clock, you can opt for darker clothes. Dark shades can help you look slimmer in photos. If you're not a fan of black in the summer, do not hesitate to adopt navy blue, which will give you excellent results.

Cross your legs at the ankles, not the knees

As you do not want to add volume to your bust by crossing your arms in front of it, you also do not want to weigh down the curve of your legs. To maximise the look of your legs, sit on the edge and cross your legs at the ankles. This trick will allow you to slim your legs.

We hope these tips for teaching you how to look slim in photos will help you take pride in your figure and photo poses! Remember, however, that self-confidence is everything. Define the best outfit you can wear for any occasion. Love your allure and flaunt it unashamedly and with confidence!
