As the weather gets warmer clothing gets thinner, shorter and tighter. If you don’t want to expose everything you’re not the only one. Picking clothing that makes you feel comfortable and can hide your tummy may be a challenge but there are certain pieces that will successfully hide the midsection and keep you fashionable all year-round. Here are the best clothes to hide your tummy!
Not all prints and patterns will work at slimming your figure. Certain patterns can really help slim you down while others may create the illusion of extra bulge. Prints that create shapes such as colour blocked dresses or blouses are your best bet. Long black side panels are an easy trick to a slimmer shape. Try staying subtle with patterns and skip the bold and loud prints. Use patterns to your advantage by breaking up your outfit and mixing prints and solids. This will create an illusion of mixing proportions which is not only a unique fashion aspect but can help take attention way from any problem areas you may have.
The ideal fit to hide your tummy is an empire waist blouse. This waistline fits tightly right under the bust and the flows out. This type of cut hides the tummy perfectly by taking attention up around the neck rather than the mid-section.
There are three great dress styles that hide the tummy perfectly.
- -A traditional empire waist dress works the same as the empire waist blouse.The tuck under the bust line creates a waist and the flowing skirt hides problem areas on your lower half.
- The second dress style is a wrap dress. These dresses typically feature a tie-able belt, which should always be tied on the side. This style balances out your silhouette and creates structure and a slim waist.
- Or just try a simple A-line dress or swing dress. They both work perfectly well for all body shapes. It will help you to look more feminine if you have rectangle type body shape. Or if you are an apple shape pick the dress above your knees to highlight the best features of your body and to focus away form your tummy.
The perfect pant for your body type is a high-waisted slim cut .These pants are fitted somewhere between a baggy boyfriend and skinny jean. This style elongates the bottom half , slims the legs and pull your tummy in. Pair them with the hip length loose top for the elegant day to night look.
Pant alternatives are skirts. They work just like dresses, A-line skirts that fit at the top and flow at the bottom work wonders when creating a successfully slimming illusion.
Swimwear is tricky for any body shape and it’s hard to find a suit that hides the mid-section. The best option is a tankini. Make sure it fits properly; the end of the tankini top should fall slightly below the start of the tankini bottoms. Remember not all tankini’s are created equal; one with a v-neck or halter straps work best at accentuating your bust and drawing attention upward. For an added bonus try finding a suit that features ruffles, ruching or draping. These small details can trick the mind into slimming the waist.
Don’t worry about finding the perfect fits and styles for your body. The best clothes to hide your tummy are different fro everyone and the best way to find the right pieces for you is to experiment. Treat yourself to a shopping trip and work on accentuating the best parts of you!
