Heavier hips is a problem that a lot of hour glass shaped women and even those with pear shaped women tend to have. They are on the bulkier side when it comes to lower body and hence seek alternatives for clothing that are fashionable but also makes the lower half of the body appear slimmer.
So Here Are Some Trendy Styles That Makes Your Hips Look Slimmer:
1. Bootcut/ Flaired Trousers
It is time to give those skinny jeans a break and think of the boot cut or flared styles. Basically these are a little wider on the bottom which automatically makes your hips look slimmer. You should pick something that is settled around the waist and not very clingy from the hips. Opt for darker hues if possible.
2. A-Line Dresses/ Skirts
A-line dresses and skirts are ideal for this body shape type. If you want to appear narrow on the hips side, then you should opt for A-line outfits. These cling to the top and give a light flare on the bottom again. What happens here is that your upper body is given more attention and lower body appears to be slimmer.
3. Wear Dark Bottoms
Heavier hips are often caused because of wrong outfit ideas. Darker bottoms are the way to go with women who have heavier butts. This way the darker colours create a slimming affect and help you in looking more shapely on the legs.
4. Wear Compressing/ Short Style Panties
Another quick way to compress the hips slightly and give you a slimmer look would be by wearing boy-short panties. What happens here is that they tend to create a compressing affect on the hips, which automatically makes you appear thinner on that front.
5. Sleeveless And Halter Necks
Opt for sleeveless and halter neck outfits that take the attention away from the hips and give you a more toned and slimming affect. With women who are heavier on the hips, usually the upper body is thinner so get attention to the right areas.
6. Belt Your Clothes Around Waist
Belting or accessorising the waist is another great idea to grab attention way from the hips. What happens here is that your curvy waist gets more attention while the hips get a little more space this appearing slimmer without trying too hard.
7. Wear Vertical Prints On the Bottom
If you have to wear prints on the bottoms, think of vertical prints or very small prints that don’t get attention to those hips. In particular, you should think of either stripes or even minute or minuscule checks that create a slimming affect.
8. Avoid Flap Pockets/ Accessorised Pockets
Do not pick denims or trousers that have a flapped pocket. What happens here is that the flapped pocket with buttons or studs tend to get immediate attention to your hips. And it would automatically make them look bigger with those added pockets.
9. Wear Wedge Heels
If you feel that you are short and also have wider or protruding hips, then opting for wedges is the best solution for you. It will give you the right balance and correct posture to make your hips look more toned. Avoid pencil heels that make your hips just out more.
10. Wear Shirts That End Around Hips
Wear tops and shirts that end right around the hips instead of the ones that end above the hips. What happens is that when tops end above hips, they draw more attention to your curves there. Either cropped or just below the butts would be your best call here.
