Watch Your Body Weight Since a leaner body tends to look an inch or two taller, watching your body weight isn't just a healthy idea; it can make you look taller. When you are heavy and short, the focus is not on your height but your width. The shorter you are with more weight, the rounder you appear and the more difficult it is to dress as a short or tiny person.

Light colors and pastels, pinks, blues and greens won’t so sharply accentuate your height. Whites, tans and grays can give you a taller appearance in your clothes when worn as a monotone outfit. Dark colors that are well matched: blacks, dark blues, browns and grays create both a slimming and taller look for a shorter or more petitie woman. 7. Avoid Heavy Fabrics Avoid wearing heavy fabrics like wool, heavy denims and tweeds. Heavy fabrics make you look shorter and dumpy and less smoothed out. More lightweight and body skimming, not hugging, fabrics like cotton, linen, polyester blends and light denims are ideal fabrics for dressing the short or tiny woman. The good part about fabric weight is that you be a little creative by wearing heavier fabrics in dark, solid slimming colors. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 3
