When you have a little more cushin’ for the pushin,’ it can be difficult to find poses that accentuate what you want to accentuate and hide what you want to hide. It’s not because you are ashamed of how you look, but like all women, we all have parts of our bodies that we are insecure about. No one wants to use the same poses over and over again, so finding various poses that work for your body is always a plus.
I have found that posing is all about getting the right angle. Hitting the right angle in your photos can drastically improve the quality of your photo and make you look oh so hot. If you are insecure about your arms, there are ways to position them, so they look slimmer. If you are insecure about your legs, there are ways to line them up so they appear longer or even slimmer. Here are the best ways to post as a plus-size woman that will take care of hiding all your problem areas.
Arms tend to be a big problem area for big girls, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make them look a bit slimmer in your photos. Try placing your hands on your hips and bringing your elbows back. This is a great way to give the illusion that your arms are slimmer. While you can find shirts that will help with this, sometimes you want to rock a sleeveless shirt and that’s okay.
You can never go wrong with putting your arms up. It not only makes your arms look slimmer, but it elongates your torso, as well. It accentuates your curves a bit more especially if you stick your butt back some.
Don’t ever think you have too much thigh and can’t do much with your legs because you can. Crossing one leg over the other while you sit on the ground is a great way to accentuate those plump legs. You can even put on a pair of heels to make your legs look longer.
Try sitting and putting one leg up while your stretch out the other. For added affect, you can put your hands on your hips with one elbow more forward and one elbow back to make your whole body appear longer.
Where my double chin girls at? If you are plus-size and want your chin to appear slimmer, then your head should never be down. It should always be up anyways. Confident girls don’t stare at the ground. Having your chin up elongates your neck and accentuates other parts of your face like your check bones.
STOMACH AND HIPS
If your stomach or hips happen to be a problem area, you could try poking your butt back a little and sticking out one of your hips. It gives your body more curve while hiding your stomach a little more.
