We all want a perfect ten figure, but some of us are too lazy to work for it. It results in flabby arms, baby fat around the stomach, heavy thighs and what not. Strategic clothing can help hide that fat, but wrong choice of clothes can make us look heavier. In today’s post, let’s find some fashion mistakes that we need to stop making in order to look fab in whatever we wear.
1. Very Tight Dresses
A dress that is too tight will not let you breathe properly, also it will fall on all the wrong places on your body. It will accentuate all those problem areas, like love handles, in a wrong way which, of course, won’t look flattering. So do not go for one size smaller dresses because instead of making you look slimmer, they will make you look heavier and even broad. To solve this issue, choose your own size and walk around in that dress before buying it.
2. Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are a tricky part of clothing. It may look good on most of the people, but not everyone. If you have a pear shaped body, pairing that skinny jeans with a short tee will only make your overall appearance look more heavy than it already is. So, choose your skinny jeans wisely and go for a size and cut that’s meant for your body type.
3. Puffy Coats and Bulky Sweaters
Puffy coats are great for those chilly winter months, but they definitely make you look bulkier. Choose a coat that is cinched at the waist as it will give more definition to your waist, and same is the case with bulky sweaters. Choose the one that defines your waist in order to appear slimmer.
4. Wide or Full Skirts
Wide or full skirts look great on many women, but not all body types can carry such skirts without making you look bulky. If you have a petite frame, choose skirts that are more tailored and structured; otherwise that skirt will make you look short and broad at the same time.
5. ¾ Pants
There was a time when ¾ pants were in rage even though they looked bad on almost everyone, unless you had legs like Deepika Padukone! Pants that end midway between your ankles and knees could be the worst nightmare as they will make your thigh area look really heavy.
6. The Wrong Bra
A fitted bra is the foundation to great looking outfits. It shapes your curves in a very flattering way. Have you looked at those bags around your chest area and your waist that get formed because your bra is too tight? You cringe just by the look of it, right? So make sure you spend ample time in finding out the correct size of your bra. Also don’t forget to wear a bra that goes well with the dress you are wearing.
7. Too Many Layers
Layering clothes is not as effortless as it looks. If you are going to wear those boyfriend jeans with that loose and baggy jacket, it is bound to make you look bulky, even when you are not. Learn the key to pair fitted clothes with slightly loose ones to balance your entire look out.
8. Flared Petticoats and Tight Blouses
A blouse that is too tight will be really unflattering to your curves and a flared petticoat not only makes the sari difficult to manage but also makes you look shapeless. Always go for blouses and petticoats that are fitted – not too tight and not too loose, just right!

I seriously hate ¾ Pants, Vandana. They look so ugly! Why do they even exist, again? It is a really nice list in fact. We all tend to make these mistakes very often, and end up making look bulkier for no reason. I always go for straight, fitted petticoats whenever I wear sarees and they do make a huge difference.
