I’m a size 24 and want to look slimmer, any tricks that anyone knows to help with this? It will be 36 degrees on interview day and I was originally planning to wear a jacket to cover my arms, however it will obviously be too hot for that now. Aargh, feeling huge…

  • Dark colours are meant to be slimming, as are vertical stripes. But it sounds as though it would have been too hot for dark colours. Hope you got the job

  • Dress and a light cardi or dress with longer sleeves

  • How did you go? What did you wear? And, more importantly, did you get the job?

  • I would look for something black with white side panels, incredibly slimming effect. Made of cotton of course for coolness

  • Wear black with a splash of colour.

  • wear black it always has slimming effect. skirt with short sleeved long top,add touch of colour with scarf or necklace and earrings too match.good luck with your interview.

  • i am excited about these answers this is exactly what I want to know thanks for asking the question

  • It is important to look comfortable and confident. Wear clothes that can breathe; especially if it is hot. I would go with black pants and a crisp coloured shirt.

  • I would go with all black with a bright colour large necklace for a pop of colour,and wear a nice lipstick shade and nail polish.They probably have air con so you could wear a loose black dress with a black jacket or apply some fake tan on your arms/legs to slim them down.I would keep it professional and go with all black {no prints} just add some colour with a necklace and bag.

  • I think like the others have said black on the bottom and maybe a strip shirt or nice print top.
    Good luck hope you get the job.

  • black is slimming but you need a few accessories and a pop of colour otherwise you can look morbid. just smell good, dress neat and be polite and on time

  • I hope its not too late to post. I usually wear black on the bottom half and a blouse or shirt with a print/design that flows down my body rather than across my body. Good Luck with the interview

  • You can still wear a suit jacket which is recommended at an interview. Just don’t wear it until you walk into the air conditioned building. Black is slimming.

  • I love that you dressed comfortably in able for you to concentrate on the questions and not being uncomfortable. Black is always a classic colour – but it does depend on what the interview is for. If it’s for office work a jacket would still be appropriate – if it’s anything like my office the aircon is cold enough that you can still wear a jacked even when it’s hot outside.

  • maybe a pencil skirt that shapes your body and pulls you in with a shirt that has small sleeves or 3/4 sleeves
