In the April shot, she is using the old trick of popping a hip and leg out towards the camera to make her hips appear less wide (and hiding her belly behind a sign). At a quick glance, her lower half looks smaller because her right leg is tucked behind her left, but you can tell it's just the angle of the shot. Nine out of ten models do the exact same pose, even though they are already built like pencils. In the February shot, she is being photographed with both her torso and feet pointed toward the camera (and Spanx). This does nothing to trick the eye. To be quite honest, I do not see any indications of noticeable weight loss (she MAY have lost a little weight around her face, which, if so, good for her for trying what normal people try: dieting and exercise / dancing), just a different stance. Also, she must have meant "size 16," though I would dispute that, too. Also, stupid magazine, we do not need to "click to see big." We can see big just fine.
