How to Look 10 Pounds Thinner On Your Wedding Day
Five tricks for a longer, leaner you — minus the dieting.
Every bride wants to look her best for the wedding day, but with all the wedding planning to-dos, sometimes it’s tough to stick as closely as you want to your workout regimen. Luckily, there are a few easy shortcuts you can take to look trim in your wedding dress without hitting the gym every day or driving yourself crazy with diet fads.
Flatter Your Figure
Get a Good Support System
Stand Up for Yourself
Give Your Height a Boost
Strike the Right Pose
Your wedding photos are how you’ll remember your wedding day and you want to look fabulous! Keep your shoulders back, and flatter your jaw line by pushing your chin forward. If you can, keep your body slightly turned — you’ll look slimmer than if you’re facing straight at the camera. The most ideal look is to tilt your shoulders toward the photographer with your hips on an angle, which makes your waist and hips look instantly narrower.
Especially key for brides? Hold your arms slightly away from your body rather than pressing them against your sides. It can be tough (especially if you’ve been holding that bouquet all day!) but it makes a huge difference. While it seems like a lot to keep track of, don’t forget that you can practice! Based on the number of parties you will be attending, you’re going to have your picture taken pretty often — take advantage so that on your wedding day you can give ’em your best shots.
