I really want to do the whole tucked in shirt thing but I wear jeans 99% of the time and once I sit down they do that sagging in the crotch area thing, no matter what size I wear. Anyone have tips for that?
A small head in relation to your body height also makes you look taller, like you maybe be 4 ft but if youre 6 heads tall or 7 etc you'll look longer, im 5ft 6 with a big head, i dont look long at all.
THANK YOU! I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I'M 5'2 I THINK AND I'M TURNING 17 IN NOVEMBER. I WAS MUCH TALLER WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, IRONICALLY BUT DURING THE PIVOTAL "GROWTH SPURT" PERIOD I WASN'T EATING CORRECTLY AND ON TIME AND SKIPPED TOO MANY MEALS SO THE DOCTORS TOLD ME THAT MY BODY PROPORTIONS (ESPECIALLY MY FACE) SHRUNK AND BASICALLY I'M AVERAGE HEIGHT - OR I WAS - BUT MY BODY SIZE IS PETITE SO I LOOK SO SMALL AND NOT 5'4. AND I GUESS THERE'S POSITIVE ASPECTS TO IT BECAUSE I HAVE A BABY FACE SO I LOOK YOUNGER BUT WHENEVER I GO TO PHARMACIES OR SWIMMING POOLS THEY ARE REALLY SUSPICIOUS OF MY AGE AND DON'T TRUST ME XD SO THANK YOU FOR THIS ESPECIALLY THE IDEA ABOUT FLATS BECAUSE I LOOK 12 WHEN I'M WEARING THEM HAHA.
What about adding belts? Skinny or wide belts? Same color as a monotone outfit or different color? Belts for decoration or out of need because your body changed shape a little? What about that ripple effect some belts give...alter the pants or leave it?
Good tips. I've had most of my tops' sleeves tailored at 3/4 length that is more flattering for me. And when I find pants/jeans that fit right, I buy two pairs, one hemmed for flats and the other for heels. I don't usually rolled up my jeans unless the underside material is of similar color as the outside because the light colored cuff visually cuts me off at the lower leg which would make me look shorter. It costs more to tailor clothes, but worth it in the long run.
I think our lower body proportion is very similar, but your body looks so much better than mine 😭 idk if I've been influenced or something, but I always see myself quite flabby and I *hate* my thighs and butt because it's bigger than my upper body (I have quite a flat chest). I always have a hard time trying to make myself look good in clothes, so these tips are really helpful. Thank you for being my saviour 💓💓💓
