Tips For Choosing Slimming Dresses
Colors: Pay extra attention to colors. Avoid bright, bold colors. Go for solid dark colors. Black is the classic color that generally makes you look thinner, but you can also go for dark green, dark brown, navy blue or maroon. However, you also need to check whether the pattern and fabric of the dress is right.
Patterns: Avoid loud or bold patterns (prints) since they will not only make you stick out like a sore thumb, they will draw attention to the heavier parts of your body. Vertical stripes are considered life saviors since they give an elongated look to the body. 
Necklines: Women with double chins, large hips and a heavy butt should wear v-necklines or side necklines. Never even think about wearing turtlenecks! They make your neck disappear, and make you appear shorter and bigger. A stylish side neckline is a good option as it will highlight your shoulders, avoiding unnecessary attention to other not so great parts of your body. 

Slimming Underclothes: Corsets are a fantastic way to smooth out the bulges and lift your breasts. If you want to emphasize your cleavage, then underwire bras are the best.

Material: Avoid wearing bulky fabrics like wool, unless the occasion demands it. For winters, you can simply go crazy with cashmere since it will keep you warm without adding bulk to the get-up. V-neck sweaters are also a good option. Go for light cotton or satin like material for an evening dress which falls freely around the body.

Accessories: Right kind of accessories not only give you a striking look, but also a slimmer appearance. A knee-length garment with high-heeled knee-length boots can make you look taller and sexier. Necklaces worn on v-necks will draw more attention to the neck, saving you all the unwanted attention to the other parts of you. If you are shorter and want to highlight your waist, then belts are a great option. 

Boot Cut Pants: No tapered or flared legs! If you have heavy thighs and hips, avoid wearing slim-ankled or flare-cut pants. Boot cut pants are the best for making you look slimmer since they give you a more symmetrical appearance. 

Stitch and Design: The style or the design of the dress should be such that it highlights your best assets and masks your worst ones. If you have a big butt, then wear an off shoulder dress showing off your shoulders or emphasizing your cleavage. If you have long legs, but a heavy upper body, then go for a short dress which focuses on your long legs.  

Avoid Ruffles and Pleats: Whether it’s a ruffled shirt, pleated skirt or pleated pants, it will only make you look bigger than you actually are and will add unnecessary volume to your body.

Glam up your best features and de-emphasize your worst ones. Dress to flatter your figure. Try out as many clothes as you want but buy only those which suit your body type. Take a note of your strongest features and your weakest ones and dress accordingly.
