Black Makes You Appear Slimmer In Photographs And More Tips!



If you're having a family portrait taken over the holidays, wearing black and darker solid colors will actually make you appear slimmer. Also, don't stand facing straight to the camera, turn your body slightly and you instantly lost a few more pounds! You can also lean a bit toward the camera with your weight on your front foot - what's farther away from the camera will appear smaller. But MOST importantly, DON'T WAIT TO LOSE THE WEIGHT to have your family photo taken! Do it now!

  • not waiting is such great advice! I had been trying for such a long time to get everyone together for a family picture but at the same time dreading what I would look like in them. We finally managed to get some done and I'm so glad! here we are now just 6 mo later and the kids are scattered across different states and we don't know when the next time is we will be together and its our only family picture we have! - by CHUBBY_BUNNY36
