Have you, like millions of us, vowed to lose weight in 2012? First let me say, girl, you look fantastic. Don’t change! But if you feel you must minimize that delicious flesh, here’s one way to do it with zero visits to the gym and continuing to eat exactly the way you do now: wear a V-neck.
You may have heard this tip before. You may even doubt its veracity and peg the V-neck theory as an old wives tale. But I’m here to tell you, dearests, it’s science. Look at the two lines below. Which one looks longer?
If you chose the one wearing a V-neck, you would be correct. But, alas, they are exactly the same! So yes it looks longer, but does that also mean thinner? Science has also answered that question with a resounding yes. In 2010, Fulbright scholar Silvia Savazzi published a study that found 80 percent of the time, people perceived the taller among us to be thinner.
If you love wearing turtlenecks, I certainly wouldn’t tell you to stop. They do look fetching on you! But if it’s a choice between 24-Hour and changing your neckline—especially if it involves the M Missoni number exhibited here? Well, I think we can both agree that’s an easy one.
P.S. Worried about those horizontal stripes?
