This month you’ll find me in the April issue of Women’s Health Magazine giving my hot tips in the denim special on conceal & reveal jeans to enhance or hide your assets!
Who would of thought I’d be in the same magazine as the lovely Heidi Klum , her on the cover me on the back!
CONCEAL: A LARGER BOTTOM
Look for a solid clean dark denim jean with large back pockets. Draw attention to slimmer areas with a light colour such as white shirt tucked in. Steer clear of embellishments, noticeable pocket detail or contrast stitching.

REVEAL: A GREAT BUM
Got a great bum you want to show off then opt for a jean without back pockets! A flared leg will further enhance by following it’s natural curves. Look for a denim with at least 2% Elastane to hike it all up.

CONCEAL: WIDE HIPS
High waisted styles are perfect for drawing attention up towards the slimiest part of your waist. A flash of ankle with a turn up gives the illusion of a longer leg and slims down the hips.

REVEAL: SLENDER HIPS
If your lucky enough to have Shakia-worthy hips most styles will suit but if you can pull off a low-rise then go for it! A defined waistband of an inch or more will frame your slender hips perfectly. A flare in the leg will extenuate your hips even more!
CONCEAL: A FLABBY BELLY
Again it’s all about your unique rise, too high a rise can be uncomfortable and emphasis a tummy bulge. Too low and you’ll get a muffin spillage. The most flattering way to conceal a belly is with a wide waistband with a double button detail.

REVEAL: A FLAT TUMMY
How low can you go is the way to go here but another way of showing off your trim abs is by choosing a denim wash with lighter fading or bleaching around the tummy area, why because you eye naturally goes to the lightest part of the jean drawing attention to your best asset. Add a belt in a contrasting colour to further highlight your abs.

CONCEAL: LARGER LEGS
To give the illusion of slimmer legs, try a style with a two tone side panel. The clever shading will slim down your hips and shave inches off bigger thighs. Love it!
REVEAL: PERFECT PINS
We all know skinny jeans are best for showing off toned legs. But a contrasting seam down the outside of the jean draws the eye up and down the leg giving an even more elongating effect.
