For a more flattering photo, position your camera slightly above your eye line.
This will help slenderize your arm.
Paying attention to your posture when taking pictures can make the world of a difference. Hunched shoulders and slumped spines will not elongate your figure.
This one is easy: bulky clothing will make you look heavier than you really are, so stick to lightweight, thin fabrics, like silk, whenever possible.
A straight-on body shot shows you at your widest, but if you stand at a slight angle, you’ll look slimmer.
Become your most slenderized self by dressing in darker shades.
Go for a darker Instagram filter, like X-Pro II or Mayfair, for an instantly bronzed image.
This trick will elongate your neck and help to avoid any unflattering chin angles. Because let’s be honest: no one strives for a double chin.
Not only will this accentuate your collarbone and slim your arms, it will also make you look more polished and put together—and that’s always a good thing.
This is especially true when sitting in a skirt or dress. By crossing your legs at the ankle instead of knee, you’ll never expose too much thigh and will look leaner.
Keep your arms slightly away from your body for a more flattering shot.
If you’re taking a group picture, try and stand in the middle and slightly turn your body toward the person next to you for your slimmest angle.
No shame here, it’s all about finding what looks best for you!
