Is your tummy a problem area for you? If you are like most women then the answer is probably yes. Believe it or not there are ways to flatter your belly through the use of proper clothes. Here are four ways to disguise your mid-section with a few figure flattering frocks:
1. Wear gathered or ruched Tops.
The gathered detail gives style, makes the waist look slimmer and disguises imperfections. No one will know if it’s the fabric or your flesh that’s making a stylish statement.
2. Wear wrap dresses and tops.
They create a more defined waistline, enhance the bust size, slimming the waist and elongates your body.
3. Wear short-waisted, fitted jackets.
Look for fabrics with a little bit a stretch to enhance your curves and hide your tummy. The fitted jacket will nip in at your waistline and give the illusion of a smaller waist and tummy.
4. The appropriate undergarments
They give you a smoother and sleek final look. Shape-wear is a fabulous way to disguise your less perfect parts and create a gorgeous silhouette. All you need to do to add smoothness is layer a lightweight tank underneath a clinging top. Don’t forget the control top panty hose.
