    yes, visually it makes a person appear a bit slimmer than they are... However, it does not make a bigger person look thin, that's a common misconception people (especially women) tend to have about wearing black.....it's not going to make a 200 pound person look like they're 125.

    Wearing black and other dark colors can do a lot to make you look slimmer. Bumps and bulges are well hidden in dark colored clothing.

    Yes, the color black is really slimming, because it hides the shadows of all the bumps and stuff on one's body, plus because it's such a dark color, we register anything black as slightly smaller (you know how a black room closes in on you? )

    i stumble on that earth tones are very slimming and help deliver out the warmth temperature of your guy or woman epidermis tones. Salmon and pink with brown and black look very slimming on me. possibly it works for others. human beings oftentimes remark on how extreme high quality the colour looks, as antagonistic to looking at your weight!

    it does slim you but if you are larger wearing all black won't help. I would wear a black cami under things so that it will create a slimmer layered look. I would wear black camis they really slim you. Bu loose fitting fblack t shirts sometimes create a frail look!
