Can a Narrow Underwear Waistband Make You Look Slimmer?
A lot of us want to look slimmer, especially when we are almost in the buff. Here’s how.
Picking underwear is like picking pants, or a coat: whatever you choose to wear will have an impact in how it frames your body, making it look slimmer or boxier.
If you ask around, most people will suggest that a way to look slimmer in everyday life is to wear a belt. A belt makes clothes hug your body closer to your waist, and seeming to reduce the size of your hips, creates the illusion of a slimmer frame.
Few people, however, realize the same is true for underwear. And if you’re ready to splurge on premium underwear for a day that matters, you may as well choose one that will elongate your silhouette and make you look like you have lost a few pounds.
The first trick is to pick underwear that’s not monochromatic: by having an elastic band of a different color than the underwear fabric, you will visually create the look of a belt that hugs your waist, and this will naturally make you look thinner. No workout needed.
The second trick is even more powerful, because very few people understand this: the thinner the band is, the more it will appear slimming on you. Why? Because of the rules of proportions. A narrower elastic band is smaller than a classic one because of this, it will trick the eye in seeing a smaller waist, and as a result, a thinner you.
