How to Measure Your Body

MORE Fashion Tips...

TIPS If you are tall and thin, you're lucky. You're every woman's envy and every man's dream girl next door. Not generally true, but at least its what they say in the fashion industry. Modeling agencies are constantly looking for your body type. You're a designer's alive mannequin.

Things to remember

1. While you are what are described above, it's not always true that you can wear everything you want. Clothing colors should also coordinate to your skin tone and hair.

2. If you are very thin:
  • You should not wear anything bare or clinging.
  • Fullness and softness are your tricks of illusion.
  • Soft, fluffy fabrics in summer and airy voile are good choices. Boots are best. They camouflage skinny legs under skirts.
  • Vertically striped designs and patterns will make you even look thinner than you are.

  • For Women: Keep the very skinny part under wraps. You may cover your throat with a scarf, choker, high cowl neck or long hair. Avoid prissy bows and ruffles.

  • For Men: Keep the very skinny with thinker fabrics and jackets. Of course, consider going to the gym, and you should not consider too long or too short hair.
  • You should always wear a suit that fits well as there are many big and tall mens clothing available today.

  • Prominent large-scaled designs and patterns such a big polka dots are things to avoid.
  • Layering adds interest and disguises thinness.
  • Like the very short woman, you should avoid heavy shoes. They'll make your legs look even thinner.
3. If you think your height is more than what you want
  • For women: Avoid heels, of course. Minimize the use of padding on your shoulder.

  • For men: Don't worry. It's all in your mind. Tall men are desirable.
  • Wear horizontally striped designs and patterns.
  • Minimize layering clothes.
  • You should always wear a suit that fits well as there are many big and tall mens clothing available today.
