How to show off while hiding your stomach? Whether your belly is small or very plump, you feel like you only see it in your baggy or tight outfits . Of course, you carefully avoid horizontal stripes and, even if you like black in small amounts, fashion is more fun than a total black look! You come back angry and frustrated from your shopping sessions when, empty-handed, you realize that once again, your curves and your complexes prevent you from wearing that beautiful dress or those pretty pants that were making your eye. It’s from the past ! Today, we are talking about clothes and accessories to adopt to give the impression of a flat stomach. Yes Yes, it’s possible ! Discover the art of illusion to dress with modernity, elegance and femininity while camouflaging that little belly.
How to wear it when you have a stomach?
Your best ally, all clothing combined, is undeniably the BLOUSE! Fluid blouse, blouson top, light shirt … all these options are open to you as long as the material is airy, vaporous and does not stick to the skin (and to love handles). Super feminine, full of elegance, the fluid blouse can be worn with an oversized jacket or cardigan and a close-fitting bottom (to balance and not fall into the ball effect).
For a touch of modernity, tuck a side of the shirt or blouse (or the front of the top) into your pants and let go of everything else on the sides and behind. This is especially effective if you don’t feel like showing off your height. It will be just as effective with a skirt (straight, flared to forget your hips or pencil to play the sexy attitude) and pretty camel or black boots. The shorts can easily replace the skirt as well, especially if they are in the color of the blouse, which gives the illusion of a longer bust.
Small special case hyper trend of the moment: the striped shirt. Its major asset: lengthen the bust with its verticals. You can tie the two sides together on the stomach (which will fade under the volume of the knot) or a side tucked into pants for more modernity.
The extra trick
As for colors, choose the shade that best highlights your skin tone according to your colorimetry. Also think about floral and animal prints which are right on trend.
As for accessories, a pretty necklace to illuminate your cleavage, a scarf carelessly tied around the neck, beautiful earrings, etc. What about your belly in all of this? Neither seen nor known ! Successful bet !
What model of dress to wear when you have a belly?
Ah, the dress! This essential flagship piece of the feminine wardrobe is the charm asset par excellence. But which dress to wear when you have a stomach? You will be surprised, but there is a choice! To hide a little belly that is too plump, opt for:
The skater dress
Simple and fluid, the skater dress flares out from the navel to fall in harmonious pleats on the thighs. The gaze thus turns away from your belly and your slightly broad hips. Rather smart, the skater dress!
An empire dress
Its beautiful neckline flares out under the bust in a supple and light material that falls straight or flared and thus hides your little belly and your love handles in elegance.
A flowing straight dress
Super chic and ultra trendy, the straight dress is ideal for H body types, but also for all other women who like comfortable outfits! Mark the waist with a belt if yours is marked.
How to wear it to make you forget your belly?
We just scratched the surface with the empire dress: creating fullness around the chest will hide your little plump belly. Like the fluid blouse, tuck in the front of your top and release the rest of the garment around your waist to be right in the modern-chic-feminine trend.
For example, how about a folk inspiration with a black-on-white embroidered ethnic patterned empire top, paired with tight black pants and black pumps? All associated with a faux leather jacket or a perfecto to structure the bust and bring a modern graphic touch. Second example: the wrap dress (also called wallet) which is suitable for all body types (except H which will follow their natural tendency with a straight dress). With boots, you get a look to die for!
The extra trick
Little underwear tip: the empire cut accentuates large breasts. To counter this slight inconvenience (if you wish, of course), favor a minimizer bra, designed to flatten the breasts a little.
The sculpting body
To finish with our latest flat stomach ally, the sculpting body, the slimming girdle, the slip or the high flat stomach panties are essential to flatten the plump stomach. Of course, all of these pieces require a bit of practice to get comfortable. But you should really test their shaping effect in the evening, from time to time, to go out with friends, to have a drink in town. You will quickly notice that this tight little dress that you had fallen for without ever being able to wear it, or this little top that curves your chest are having their little effect …
Forgotten granny’s horrible sheath. Today, slimming bodysuits and sculpting girdles are alluring underwear that is adorned with lace, satin and play the effects of transparency in a sexy pin-up spirit to keep until the end of the night (or not! ).
