How To Wear Dresses That Will Accentuate Your Body

The primary rule in fashion that will emphasize your assets and conceal your deficiencies is that you have to know your body type well. Your shape can be an apple, pear, wedge, rectangle, or hourglass. It can be a combination of any two or more of these shapes. Once you have identified your body shape, you can work around planning the types of clothes appropriate to your figure.

The key is that the garments you choose will make you achieve a balanced form, which is the neat hourglass shape, with the same proportions on the upper and lower parts and a narrower middle area.

#1. Hourglass

Since you have the curves in the proper places, highlight those areas by wearing fitted clothes. How’s that wrap dress or a belted jacket as a fashion outfit? That will flatter your large bust and hip areas while drawing attention to your tiny waist. You can also don a crop top and a pencil skirt to achieve the same effect. Other options are skinny leg jeans or flowy pants with belt.

#2. Apple

To accentuate your top and create an illusion of a curvy lower body, wear a flowy top or swing coat paired with jeans with pocket or A-line skirts or slacks. If you are into straight-leg pants, pick the one that is low-waist. Show off your slender legs through a shift dress or a high-waist circle shirt.

#3. Pear

Since your hips and lower body are bigger than your upper portions, mix and match some colors with tops that are lighter and bottoms that are darker. Don a structured jacket with its ends that is just above the waist. Match this with an A-line skirt or flared jeans. Draw attention to your upper body through an off-shoulder dress.

#4. Wedge

With wide shoulders, tone down attention from your upper body to your midsection through dresses that will provide a semblance of a waistline. You can opt for full skirts, pants that are wide in the leg area or bottoms that are bright in color.

#5. Rectangle

These are the slender type with the shoulders, waist, and hips that have almost similar widths. As you don’t need to conceal other body sections, show off your legs and arms. A V-neck or a scoop neck blouse or a top with collars or ruffles can create an illusion of a curve.

Tips To Help Remove Wrinkles


Wrinkles often come with age although there are certain situations that would cause it to appear prematurely. If you don’t like having wrinkles so much, there are ways that you can remove them or at least minimize its appearance.

Retinoids Treatment (including Retin A). This is a topical treatment for wrinkles. What the cream does is it repairs skin damage therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines on your face. It can also stimulate the blood vessels in your skin so it appears rosy.

Microdermabrasion. As opposed to dermabrasion which requires the help of a professional who could perform a non-chemical and a non invasive procedure. Microdermabrasion on the other hand can be done by anyone on themselves in the comfort of your own home. While dermabrasion is not very intrusive, microdermabrasion is far less intrusive! Microcrystals are sprayed into the skin and the outermost layer and the dead skin cells are then removed.

Glycolic acid peels. This is the use of chemical peels so the outer layer is removed. The product containing glycolic acid is applied on to your face and is then peeled off. This is another popular treatment for wrinkles so when the outer layer is removed, the fresh layer of skin is revealed.

Deep Chemical Peels is also another treatment in order to address a more serious imperfection like coarse wrinkles. The treatment is more uncomfortable and recovery is lengthy compared to chemical peels that are milder.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids are also used in chemical peels giving the same results as undergoing microdermabrasion. It can remove fine wrinkles and surface scars.

Antioxidants. You can get them by eating fruits and vegetables or you can apply topical treatment that contains antioxidants. What it does is it reduces the damage caused by the sun or pollution. Age, diseases or the use of irritating skin products can cause our skin to lose its ability to produce antioxidants and so it is important that we either get them from the food we eat or topically apply them on to our skin.

Benefits of Working Out at Home

Whether you’re someone who just dislikes the idea of sweating through a workout before an audience at a gym, or who prefers the peace, quiet, and privacy of their home, not everyone is a fan of packed gyms and their endless equipment. While there are many different benefits to joining a gym – impressive machines, personal trainers, and even group classes are all present at local gyms – they aren’t the ideal workout environment for each individual. Working out in your own home doesn’t have to be a bad idea; in fact, you can get an equally excellent workout in whether in your bedroom, living room, or at a home gym.

Home Gyms Save Time and Money

When you work out at home, you don’t have to pay for a monthly membership – after all, it’s your home, and your equipment to use. You also won’t ever have to shell out more cash to take a class; instead, you can rely on workout videos and DVDs, or even step-by-step printables. Additionally, there’s no need to hop in your car and commute, as everything you need is right at your fingertips. You’ll save money on gas, reducing the amount of distance you have to travel every time you wish to work out.

You Can Exercise Whenever You’d Like

Many gyms are limited in their hours of operation. Although some 24 hour gyms do exist, they can get quite crowded during popular time – right after the workday ends, early in the mornings, and all day on weekends. Instead of fighting off crowds and scanning desperately for available equipment, or perhaps missing classes due to scheduling inconvenience, work out at home. When all of your equipment, your workout routines, and your space is available whenever you’d like to use it, you’ll find yourself making great use of your time and fitting in workouts more easily.

There’s No Need to Dress Up

Workout attire can get expensive, especially if you’re trying to look your best when working out among fit and attractive gym-goers. When you workout in the privacy and emptiness of your home, you don’t have to worry about what you wear – in fact, you can start sweating in an old, gross t-shirt or your underwear if you’d like. With no one there to impress, or to cover up for, you can work out in whatever state makes you most comfortable.

What To Wear To Look Slim

Verticle stripes

You may be starting out a new exercise plan or a diet plan and sometimes the results are not as immediate as we want it to be. But it’s ok. If there are certain parts of your body that you are not comfortable about and you want to appear thinner, you can always do something with the clothes that you put on. That’s right, you can actually look slimmer depending on how you dress. Here are a few ideas to get you started today.

Use Well Fitting Underwear

You may think that underwear cannot be seen anyway, so why bother? On the contrary, your underwear is your foundation. The fact is, around 80% of women out there are wearing the wrong bra size. Keep in mind that a good fitting bra can make your waist appear more defined. If you are unsure of what your bra size is, have yourself fitted by a professional.

You can also consider investing on shape wears because they help smooth the unwanted bulges and it keeps everything in. No matter what dress you wear, you will know that you will look leaner.

Black Is Best

This is perhaps the most common advice that you hear but it really does work. Black can make you appear thinner and skinnier. You will also get the same effect if you wear dark colors aside from black like navy blue.

Vertical Stripes

Just like wearing black, donning clothes with vertical stripes is also one of the most common. Vertical stripes can make you longer as opposed to wearing horizontal stripes that can make you appear wider than you already are.

Go For Monochromes

Get this look by wearing the same color from top to bottom. This will make you look thinner because it draws attention from top to bottom instead of from side to side.

It’s All About The Fit

Always pay attention to how the clothes fit on your body. Do not force yourself into fitting into a size 4 if you are a size 8. Size is nothing but a number. Wearing clothes that are one size too small or too big will only make you look bad.

How To Dress When You Have Stretch Marks

BeachMany women suffer from stretch marks. And while men suffer from stretch marks also, it seems to happen more often on women for reasons such as our breasts growing too quickly during puberty or pregnancy. Many of us don’t mind our stretch marks as they are nothing to be ashamed about and are a normal part of life. They are so common! However, there are also many women who do like to cover up their stretch marks as often as possible.

Sometimes it can be difficult to choose something to wear that covers up your stretch marks and looks good at the same time. This of course depends on where your stretch marks are and how severe they are.


You can usually find the right dress for your stretch marks. If you have stretch marks on your upper arms, there are many dresses you can find which are a v – neck and have long sleeves. If you have stretch marks on your bust, you can still wear dresses which are sleeveless but they need to be higher in the bust area. It is more difficult to find a dress that suits those with stretch marks on their bust and upper arms. Often winter dresses are more appropriate here. It really depends on how comfortable you are with your stretch marks.

Bathing Suits

Now, when most of us who have stretch marks think of bathing suits, we think no way! And then we think, well ok maybe a full one piece suit. But they often don’t have any style. Is there another option for a bathing suit that will actually look good at the sametime as hiding stretch marks? Well yes there is. There are nice 2 piece suits that actually look great and hide your stretch marks. That is if you have stretch marks after pregnancy. The bottoms of these bathing suits are a fair bit higher than regular ones so it actually looks like a fashion statement rather than you are hiding something. This is a great option if you have looking for a 1 piece alternative.
