Look Slimmer In Your Wedding Photos Cheat #1 : Choice of Wedding Gowns
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to carefully choose the right and suitable wedding gown for your body shape and size. It would not help you to shed those extra kilos which only proper diet and exercise can do, but it can help paint a slimmer illusion of you!
For example, if you have a reasonably slim frame but you are concerned about your flabby arms (we can never get the best of both worlds, isn’t it?), try considering donning an off-shoulders wedding gown! It can be a short-sleeved or long-sleeved off-shoulders wedding gown which has this alluring effect that creates a sexy but yet still classy look without being too over the top. This style is perfect for a flattering fit of the wedding gown and regardless of your size or shape, off-shoulders are versatile to suit anyone!
If off-shoulders aren’t your thing, you may also consider long-sleeved wedding gowns! Before you jump into conclusions that long-sleeved wedding gowns are less gorgeous or boring, there are definitely eye-catching designs which you can opt for! Celebrities such as Kate Middleton and Nicky Hilton have also successfully wowed the world with their ravishing long-sleeved wedding gowns! We think they look stunning in their wedding gowns, don’t you agree?

Look Slimmer In Your Wedding Photos Cheat #2 : Keep your posture upright
Majority of us tend to slouch and it has thus since become a habit in our lives. Often caused by poor sitting posture, this also spills over when we are standing. Slouching makes you look like you have a rounder tummy and well, layers and layers of spare tyres…In other words, your folds of excess flab are bunched together.
Maintaining your posture upright is easy, theoretically. Think of pulling the entire body up, as with a string. Square your shoulders, lift your chest, pull in your tummy and lift your chin slightly. You can get your partner or wedding photographer to constantly remind you to stop slouching during your wedding photoshoot.
However, it may be cumbersome at the beginning but when you have kicked your slouching bad habit, you not only look slimmer, you will look more confident and energetic.
Look Slimmer In Your Wedding Photos Cheat #3 : Be Mindful of Your Pose and Angles
For those with a rounder face shape, you may want to consider avoiding facing the camera full-front, especially on a close-up. Have your face tilted 45 degrees to the side to place the attention on your jawline instead.
For close-up photographs, avoid taking your wedding photos from a low angle as it will make you look ‘heavy’. Ideally, you should have the camera positioned above your eye-line, so when you look up, your neck and torso will look elongated and slimmer. If you are a fan of selfies, this should also come in handy!
If you are still bothered by your arms looking flabby even when wearing off-shoulders or long-sleeved wedding gowns, you can make them look slimmer by placing your hands on your hip. This will let your arms out. Most celebrities do this, especially those who have a bigger frame, such as Kim Kardashian, as it gives the torso more definition and makes the arms appear to be slimmer.
With the 3 simple cheats we have shared above, it is true that wanting to look slimmer in your wedding photos can be such an easy feat!
