My Top 10 Slimming & Thinning Looks & Tips


Hi everyone Heather here and today I’m
going to talk about ten tips for looking a little slimmer and hey guess what?
Nobody’s gonna get me into a size zero anymore I’ve got some curves and if
you’re an authentic woman I just, I just want you to know, I want everybody to know
that this is not about body shaming or anything like that, hey I got my curves
too and it’s just like kind of the magic of makeup where you do a little here and
a little there. Well these are just some really, they’re just illusional types of
things that help you to look slimmer and if that’s what you’re looking for
let’s go… All right now actually this is
embarrassing, this is my real body and if you’ve seen my videos on this channel or
your subscriber and many thanks for that, I show me without makeup, well this is me
without any of my slimming ideas and I’m actually kind of embarrassed to have
Bill behind the camera because this is me you know, I’m 62 years old and I got
curves but there are some slimming trick, tricks that I use… let’s look at them
okay? So here I am with my slimming look
applied, I probably wear this on a regular basis… hey hurricane likes me
better this way too, anyway so let’s get into the top 10 slimming tips that I usually
apply for myself… hmm what’s the alternative to this kind of
look? Okay so my number one tip is wear short sleeves. When we wear no sleeves at
all, I don’t know but I’m talking for myself here and you might be able to
relate but I got this stuff hanging out and I don’t know, it just takes away my
confidence so if I’m wearing a short sleeve or maybe even a cap sleeve it
just makes me feel a lot better. So the second tip is wear a camisole underneath
your clothing, now I’m wearing a black camisole underneath this and hey you
know it’s kind of see-through anyway so I probably wouldn’t wear it but I love
the top it gives me a little bit of more of an elongated look when I’m wearing a
camisole and these are the ones that I love… this one is in the black and as you
can see I got it in the lingerie department and it’s very, very its tight
but it’s also breathable and I love it and I also have a white one here that’s
the same make and again it’s very breathable and here’s some ideas I hope
you can kind of get the drift of what I’m showing you here of what we could
wear with a camisole underneath this would look great with a camisole
underneath and I love this top I love, love, love and you know
what because the neckline is a little bit low on this that camisole, it just
kind of keeps those girls from popping out if you know what I mean…
and here’s another kind of nice look with a white camisole underneath and hey
I could go on and on but they just kind of give me the confidence under my
clothing to know that everything’s kind of put in and it’s elongated and the
girls are in good shape. All right so the number three slimming tip is…
Wear your size, you know what you think that if you’re a little bit, you
know, not slim let’s put it that way, but you still have curves you’ve got
this beautiful curvy body and you know what, hey this is my size and when I
started gaining weight I started wearing all this oversized clothing I thought
you know, the more I hid the more people won’t know that I’ve gained weight and
it really just worked the opposite way So I’m going to show you a look when I
was in those days where I would wear these big clothes and you’ll see what I
mean… so here I am in one of those oversized outfits no shape, no nothing
and really, really not that pretty look and I thought I was getting away with it
you know like just sort of wearing all these loose tent kind of clothes and
actually today more than ever let’s show off some of our curves and be proud of
them. So number 4 is wear a comfortable heel, you know wearing it
heel gives us that elongated look and of course if you’re going to the grocery
store you going to the beach you’re not going to wear a heel but for the most
part with jeans and casual pants or even a skirt it looks so
much nicer and I’ve got a few shoes here that I wanted to show you, now every pair
of shoes that I have here I’ve done the investment of the leather because they
just wear so beautifully and they really form fit to your feet so if you’re going
to be wearing heels make sure you have leather but there’s a lovely pair of
sandals with not too much of a heel, these are super, super comfortable also let me just
show you in the fall or the spring or even the winter I have these boots… again
with a lower heel made of leather, very very, comfortable and also one of my
favorite shoes especially if I’m wearing a little skirt or skort or something
like that it’s this little kitten heel and also the pointy heel or pointy toes,
I should say on these shoes kind of elongate my my feet and even make my
feet look slimmer. Now number five is a nice elongated pair of casual pants or
jeans… in this pair of pants as you can see I’ve got a straight look down. I’m
not cutting them off at the bottom and the cuffs, like a boyfriend jean
because that’s really gonna cut my look off and also these jeans, fit they
absolutely do but watch a little bit of magic with these jeans… if you notice
the waistband here it’s a faux fly and what it’s doing is it’s bringing
everything sort of up a little bit giving me a little bit more of a tummy
tuck here and then of course when I just sort of throw this over the top I’ve got
a nice look, no muffin top. All right so these jeans just don’t work for me as
you can see they’re way too long they’re kind of floating around there at the
bottom and it’s not giving me that really nice slender elongated silhouette
that I had with the more of a pencil-thin kind of jeans and
Bill come on in for the close-up… let’s talk about this waistband this
kind of and these pants fit me I mean there’s no question, however, the problem
is that my little muffin top just loves to hang over this waistband as you can
see it is so not fluttering at all. Now number six is wear a darker or
opaque hose. Now as you can see this is giving me a very nice slender elongated
look here and I just have a little pointy shoe on with a smaller heel I’m
not overdoing it with the heel or anything like that and it gives me a
very nice, all really put together look. Now talking about the opaque hose or
stockings are we used to call it in the old days of leotards and for all of you
mature women, hey go and buy some of these leotards or opaque hose
or whatever you want to call them buy them in a
a navy or a black or something like that and and wear maybe a skirt or a dress
just above the knee you know, if you can pull it off, it really doesn’t matter
about your age and you’ll find that a little bit of opaque hose really helps
to give you the confidence to go out there and do that. Alright for number
seven we’ve all got those black clothes… so yeah, this is a bit of confidence
sometimes to wear black but wear it underneath something, so what I’m wearing
here is I have kind of a skinny pant on and I did a very similar thing to this
in somewhere around here I’ll put up a connection to the fall fashion video, I
think I was wearing pencil-thin pants in that one but in this one I’m wearing
more skinny pants. I am covering my but because, and also the crotch area
– because I just think it looks a lot nicer and also if you wear longer
jewelry it also gives you a little bit of look of length. Now are we just gonna
go out wearing black, no, no, no, we want to add some color, let’s add some color so
I’m just going to throw this on top here this is a really pretty, flowy
turquoise look and as you can see even with the sleeves kind of popping out
here it’s giving me a very lovely silhouette but also it has brightened me
up a little bit, and there you go and we can also do a few other colors to it or
a few other ideas and so what I’m going to do right down this little fashion
show for you I’m just going to quickly do a presto change-o and I’m just going
to put on a nice green and you’ll notice also that these are a little bit, aww it’s
all inside-out, sorry about that but they’re also elongated they are long and
they are beautiful and they are flowy so let’s just do this to give you another
kind of look right there with the color lime or blues, oranges let’s go… and one more look
that I’m going to do and that’s with kind of like a moto jacket, you know that
super kind of cool look and off with jewelry or this one but yeah and
maybe, maybe Bill can do a little bit of close-up on this one so people
can see this is actually faux leather it’s not real leather but it looks very
cool and it’s a great look for well spring, fall, winter, whenever and goes
great with this look. So number eight are stretchy belts I love my stretchy belts
you know when you’re going out and you look really great but if you don’t have
a stretchy belt I’m it’s almost impossible to sit down if you know, what
I’m talking about right? This belt here I just love it, it’s got lots of stretch in
it I can put it on hips I could put it on my waist also there are other belts
out there. Some of these kind of weave leather belts they’ve got a little bit
of give in them but I prefer the ones, this is one of my white ones again with
that elasticized type of thing and I’m just going to show you right now how
lovely this belt looks if you’re wearing like you know, the very popular types of
sweater jackets and again spring, fall early winter, maybe you might wear this
and the belt just really kind of makes the look. I think it brings you in, cinches
you in a little bit and you could even put it up as well, and I love my stretchy
belts. Now number nine is shapewear, now you probably thought that’s coming, but
you know what? I didn’t start wearing shapewear until
about a year ago. I actually tried cutting off a pair of control-top
pantyhose and trying that but it’s nothing compared to a good pair of
shapewear, now you can get them for the legs you can get them all over the place
but what I decided to opt into was one that just sort of comes up like this on the stomach as
you can see I bought it in a beige and I actually wear a very thin pair of briefs
underneath and wow it really brings everything in and it’s the reason I wear
the briefs is because I just don’t want to be washing these all the time they
are kind of an elasticized sort of thing. So anyway so I’m telling you right now
that I love these. I have this in you know a skin color and
I also bought them and here maybe Bill can do a bit of a close-up and you can
just sort of see what they’re like, now do I wear them every single day ?No I
don’t, I do wear them though if I’m going out to a nice party or I want that a
little bit of extra oomph, you know to bring myself in and just give me that
little bit of extra confidence and they’re very comfortable to So number
10 is your posture.. Hey this is probably the most important
out of all of them and in the old modeling days we used to be told to put a
book on our head and and turn and hey you know what, it’s not a bad idea so
really what you need to do is you have to have your shoulders back and, and
really just walk and sit and meet people with confidence and no more slumping.
Just to keep it a little bit straight and I’m sure that you know what? Whether
you’re short or tall or slim or mature like me, you know we all have our
authentic selves we’re all can walk with that confidence and assurance that we

  • Honey, thank you!!!! In September I will be 65!!!! This is something I am proud of!!!!! I worked hard to get here. I am proud of my health, my curves, ( a bit more than you), and VERY PROUD of the person I have become!!!!!!
    With the help of your videos, I Bjorklund now have the courage to believe that putting my best self forward is MORE THAN ENOUGH!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

  • Hi Heather, I need your advice. My legs have a lot of veins so I don't feel comfortable with no covering. What do you think of a longer top/dress with black leggings and open toed patent black sandals? I am going on a cruise to Alaska and need some nice dinner outfits. Thanks 😊

  • Thank you for this video , so much help I’m going through menopause and gaining weight I’m struggling with how to dress .

  • I would benefit more from this video with brighter lighting. I just can't see the details of the clothing & accessories. Also, don't be afraid to step forward, away from the wall. The video is about you, not the background.

  • Oh wow- the black dress with the flowy blue and green wraps and the faux leather jacket were AWESOME! 🙂

  • Love the dress at 7:30 ! Thanks for the tips.

  • Great ideas 💜….however those of us with disabilities may not be able to wear heels due to balance issues. 😥

  • Fantastic tips! I watch all your videos enjoy every one. Thanks for being so genuine.

  • Love your video except #8 stretchy belts the placement you chose actually ages your whole body look so try it on again but wear it higher just under the ribs, it will elongate you and create a waistline that is not evident with the stretchy belt down low. Glad I found your channel, youre a lovely lady 😊

  • You look good natural. Thing is, when we go out in public, and this includes everyone, we need to refrain from revealing too much. Clothes are meant to cover, for very good reason.

  • Above 40, Dont wear black above the waist..

  • Your confidance is what makes You good looking woman. Dresing is something what helps, but You have to be real and clever person, and You are evidently. Thank You. I stil get my confidance wearing oversized robe. I did it when I was 20 and now in 60. But, this under going strech could help. I'll try now!!!

  • THANK YOU!!!! There are many channels for make up and dressing for younger,BUT, every few for 60+. You are so great for sharing hints about clothing and I just watched one on make up. I have to share your channel with my sister and friends!!!! Just love it! Thank you again.

  • See you are the real deal. I can watch you, because I have an extra amount skin. But I love myself better than I did when I was smaller.

  • You are more attractive young lady, as you stated, when you wore your size.

  • I have to disagree with that black. I rarely wear black. I love my colors that go with my skin tone.

  • You can walk with that book. You got that confidence.

  • Omg! So happy I found your channel. A woman around my age (63) who i can relate to with clothing and makeup.
    Thank you for all your wonderful tips . 💖💖 Perth Western Australia 🇦🇺

  • I appreciate the advice about using stretch undergarments to slim the middle of one's body. You look great either way. I'm almost 55 and would like to change my look to feel stylish at the age I am now. How can I look younger in style without dressing like a 20 year old? Would appreciate any suggestions? I'm 5'8" and probably 25 lbs overweight. I have a muffin top also. It's summer here in CA, so any light weight clothing tips is a huge plus. Thank you also for the great videos on make up for the mature woman. I started using your ideas and like the look much better. It's so nice to see someone past their 50's show us how to dress cute and age appropriate.

  • I just turned 56 and I am so glad I found your channel. Thank you!

  • you look good.

  • Hi thank you for that awesome video! I am 60 and feeling dumpy. This is just what I needed!!

  • Shaper short commercial is disgusting.

  • I enjoyed this video!
    I find if I want to wear a flowy top I wear a more fitted bottom and vice versa. Sometimes its just too hot 🔥 for much shapewear:)

  • Very nice video. Thank you. So glad I found it! God bless you.

  • Lovely women.👏👍

  • You are awesome, real, and open! Love it!

  • There's nothing worse than seeing people wearing the wrong clothing size, it just never looks right. I do love big baggy jumpers around the house though hehe!

  • I can’t keep the jeans up

  • Thank you for sharing these ideas and shapewear tips…you look mah-velous!

  • Hi I love your videos, thanks

  • thank you for this / Im trying to come to terms with the 60's

  • Hey, Heather! Is that an elephant on your bookshelf? The interesting black-grey item? Just curious! Love your shows!

  • Omg I'm so glad your vdo pop up on my screen, thank you so much for all the cool tips. May I ask what is your body shape type? I think we have almost same shape but I don't know which type (I thought I have apple shape but I'm not sure)

  • Some great pointers and I love your attitude, your openness about where you are at this stage of your life. You look beautiful! I also like that you still wear your hair long, defying the advice we used to hear~~ I would like to see this demo with not so much black, though~~ For some of us, black is not flattering and, close to our face, can be harsh and aging.

  • I liked that "oversized" black top. If you don't want it, I'll take it. 🙂 I think the hand of the fabric matters a lot. If it has some weight to drape nicely, that can also be a slimming look, and comfortable too.

  • What a breathe of fresh air you are . Thank you for this video and your great tips. Btw you look FABULOUS. I've subbed 🌺❤😊

  • Is your hair naturally wavy?

  • Thanks M'mm for your kind time and tips.

  • Really enjoyed this. It's given me a few pointers. You look amazing for 62

  • Lots of love from India..U r awesome

  • Hello from Dallas. I have a high waist and unless I can belt just under my bra. Otherwise, they “flop” unless my belly to my crotch. Any ideas? No joke, but at 64 my body looks like I’m 10 months pregnant. I used to have the body of a goddess until 55. I don’t expect that anymore but every time I look in the mirror, I just want to cry. It’s not over eating, it’s a lymphatic condition in my legs.

  • Thank you for posting this video! Your very cute & have a sparkly personality. I just turned 56 & don't feel my age. Obviously you dont either! 😉
    Your the 1st gal who actually dresses classy & taylored outfits on youtube! Thank you! You've saved me!

  • To each her own! Way too much black (I gave up black clothing years ago) and I can't take the heat of all those layers at my advanced age! I found all my dressing advice from Carol Tuttle and her Dressing Your Truth plan.
