What To Wear To Hide Tummy – Tips & Ideas

1. Lingerie And Undergarments—Getting It Right

Wearing the right intimates is a given, but some of us need to pay more attention to a few things than others normally would. It is important that you choose a bra;
that is not loose or sagging, but makes you uptight while giving the
right definition. Also, consider high-rise underwears—these help you a
great deal. We need to get this one right.

2. Shapewear—To Your Rescue

You
should try these if you have not already. They are your rescue rangers;
I could not wait to get my hands on these. It basically, tucks the
unflattering flab and tires back into the tummy, at least it creates the
illusion. These soft, comfortable and tight-fitting undergarments come
in a lot of variants, taking full control of your tummy area. You can
easily get away with those body hugging dresses that were forever part
of your wish list. It makes a lot of difference, especially if you make
smart choices. I assure that you’re going to love it.

3. Body Posture—Matters!

We
don’t pay much attention to our posture, but it’s time we all do. Being
unaware of your ergonomics while sitting or standing will eventually
add up to a lot of other things. Poor posture is proven to sag and
loosen the abdomen muscles further and blowing up the bulge, more than
what it already is. Not only for wearing great clothes, working on your
posture is a healthy practice even otherwise. Make a conscious effort to
give it some time; you will see the change for yourself. Remember, a
slouchy posture is only going to make it worse.

4. Dress Smart—Knowing The Tricks Of The Trade

Gone
are the days when being loud and gaudy was hep. Dressing up classy and
carrying it off well is the all new mantra. But, first, you need to get
your basics right. Understand your problem areas and your strengths.
Wear dresses that steer the attention away from your tummy; it could be
just a flowy design or pattern that does it for you. It’s also worth
mentioning that it’s best to stay away from body-hugging clothes, unless
you’re sure of pulling off a bulgy stomach. Choose what you want to
make the center of attraction and dress accordingly.

5. Colors, Patterns, And Fabrics—Know It All

To begin with, fabrics make a lot of difference; every color and pattern look differently with different fabrics.
If you are serious about hiding your tummy, then I suggest you go for
dark colors, flowy fabrics, and vertical patterns. This is a fail-proof
method that generally doesn’t go wrong. Horizontal patterns give it a
broad look, thus vertical patterns for obvious reasons.

6. Layer It Up—And Make-Believe

Layering
is another technique that magically hides it all away, shifting the
focus anywhere but your tummy. Combinations like the tank top with plaid
shirt; knee-length dress and a cape; trousers with a shirt and blazer
or shrug etc. work pretty well to your advantage. Layers that are
unbuttoned gives it a significant effect making you look taller.
Make-believe in the truest sense.

7. Skin Tight Dresses—Might Not Be A Great Idea

For
me, it’s not very difficult to stay away from these because I’m not a
fan of anything body-hugging, not that my body permits it. Either way,
it’s best to go with something that has a flow, bounce, and definition
to it. If you’re comfortable in your skin and whatever you’re wearing,
go ahead—there’s no stopping you!

Had I known any of these, my
shopping experiences would have been less challenging. Take a minute to
understand the in and out of each of them. Let’s use these tips to build
the blocks and look at dresses that will not just camouflage the
unflattering fat but also make you look stylish and confident.

Are you ready to have a look at the dresses that hide belly and love handles? Scroll through and see what defines you the most.

1. Ruffle Or Peplum Tops

Peplum
tops or dresses cinch at the narrow part of your upper waist and lift
up as they train down to the belly button. Best for your curves. Ruffle
tops shift the focus and conceal those bulges. It’s all about the
illusion and creating it the way you like it.

2. Vertical Pattern Shirts Or Dresses

Vertical
dresses are for women with frailties like ours. Unlike the horizontal
patterns, these make your body look taller; so you appear slimmer than
your usual self. This way you can fully enjoy what you’re wearing
without having to worry too much about the flabby stomach.

3. Pleated Skirt And Plain Tops

It
is a general assumption that people with a protruding tummy cannot wear
skirts. I thought so too for a very long time. Yes, if you opt for
denim or a small waist skirt, it ought to happen. Try pairing your plain
T-shirts with pleated skirts; it makes a lot of difference. These
skirts start right at the tip of your belly button, so go with a top
that is soft and airy. If you can pull off a high-waist skirt, nothing
like it, either!

4. Tops With Pom Poms Or Frayed Edges

Pom-poms
are a rage right now, and they work to our advantage. So do ruffled
tops. Those frayed edges and pom-poms absorb the attention masking the
painfully wobbly areas. These are both stylish and figure-flattering. We
just need to learn to hover around our pain areas.

5. Dark Colored Flowing Dresses

Wearing
dark colored dresses to hide belly will always work. If you loved an
outfit and are not sure if it goes with your figure? Or apprehensive
that it will sit well on the tummy, go with a dark color. Even better,
if it is either flowing or wavy.

6. Oversized Tops With Trousers

This
ensemble is not just fool-proof but also gives you a chic and classy
look. Pick up by at least one size more than your regular size and team
it up with a pair of slim-fit trousers, jeggings or leggings. Preferably
something that goes below your hip. Accessorize to finish the look, and
you’re ready to go!

Now that you know how to hide belly smartly,
what are you waiting for? Go for it confidently. Don’t budge on your
style or your confidence! Rules are meant to be broken, for all you know
there are none—You’re making them all up in your head. Here’s hoping
