clothes that make you look thin

Slim Pickings

Banana Republic’s popular Sloan pant has inspired a full collection designed in the same figure-flattering fabrics: The stretch material (which gives in all directions) smooths wobbly areas, and the pieces are expertly tailored with strategic darting and seaming. Everything is wrinkle resistant—perfect for travel—and comes in petite and tall sizes.

The Muffin-Top Annihilator

Not only is this fitted-on-top, swingy-on-the-bottom shirt super flattering, but it also features a hidden inner tank made of nylon and spandex that holds you in and banishes bulges. The longer length in back offers extra rear coverage, too. Plus, the hidden tank has three times the control of regular spandex.

Not Your Grandma’s Corset

Beloved in Brazil for more than 40 years, the Squeem not only whittles the waist, flattens the tummy, and helps you stand up straighter, but its flexible boning also makes it more comfy than other corsets.
