Leggings can have 'slimming effect'
Summer is here and yet many are unwilling to wear the clothes they want due to hang-ups about their own body.

However, Lisa Butcher, an established fashion designer, explained that there are many tips and tricks people can adopt to hide any unsightly things, with leggings topping the list, the Mirror reported.

She recommended that by pairing oversized T-shirts and tunic tops with leggings, consumers can cover up any more defined curves that a girl may want to forget about.

This is easily done by taking a size larger than the usual for any tops and then teaming them with leggings.

However, adding medium-to-short sleeves can cover the much-maligned bingo wings, Ms Butcher added, with a long shirt also slightly concealing any extra room on the thighs.

Lisa Butcher originally worked as a supermodel, gaining fame in 1987 at the age of 14 after winning a competition with Elle magazine, making her the face of fashion for that year.
