HOW TO CHEAT A FAB FIGURE…

February 2, 2012

The drop-a-dress-size frock
Go on, have another biscuit – this genius dress will make your waist look teeny and your body look longer and slimmer. No diet required!
Panelled dress, £49.50, 6-20, Marks & Spencer.

A helping hand from Gok…
We reckon Gok Wan is the patron saint of curvy women with his gorgeous collection of tummy-flattening, boob-boosting, bottom-lifting underwear!  Our fave? This stunning body.
Osaka control body, £22.50, 30B–46G, Gok Wan for Simply Yours.

Leg-lengthening shoes…
Wear nude shoes with skintone tights or bare legs to make pins look instantly longer and slimmer. It’s the oldest styling trick in the book and it works every time!
Shoes, £55, Jonathan Kelsey Editions at Debenhams.

A tummy-disguising peplum
Peplum skirts and dresses are a huge trend – and perfect for disguising a big tummy or bum! Always wear with heels and a fitted top to show off your waist.
Skirt, £29, 6-20, Love Label at Very.

Magic jeans…
You could cut out carbs and hit the gym – or you could just buy these amazing jeans!  They come with built-in control panels to flatten your tum and the cut alone will knock off pounds.
Confident Curves control jeans, £29, 10-28, Isme.
