There is nothing more annoying than trying on a million different clothes only to realize that the problem is not the clothes, but your bulging tummy. It can be hard to find things that hide your tummy but at the same time looks good too, so here are your top 10 ways to hiding a tummy pouch.
Top 10 Ways to Hide a Tummy Bulge
#1. A Banded Top
Banded tops are shirts that have a band at the hemline which is great for covering a tummy bulge.
#2. Wrap Dresses and Shirts
Wrap dresses and wrap shirts are excellent for hiding your tummy pouch. Choose them in colorful patterned styles since the eye will be drawn eye from the problem area.
Shapewear is another great way to help hide your trouble spots, although they can be a little uncomfortable to wear at times. Stick to shapewear only when needed though!
#4. Get the Right Fit
Stick to your size and your body structure. Wearing something too small and too tight will only accentuate the problem and wearing something that is too large for you will only make it obvious that you're trying to hide something. Instead, stick to a happy medium: your true size!
#6. Wear a Fitted Jacket
Don't cover up in a big jacket…it will only make you look bigger! Instead, try a fitted jacket that enhances your silhouette and nips at the waist.
#7. Empire Waist Tops
Empire waist tops are great for hiding a tummy bulge since it nips right under the bust and hangs straight down all the way, hiding that unwanted roll of fat that you hate so much.
#8. Avoid Pants With Waist Detail
Put away your pants/jeans that have a lot of waist detail such as lots of pockets, bows, belts, etc, since this will only bring attention to the tummy area. Instead, stick to really plain and simple flat front pants with little or no detail at the waist.
#9. Select the Right Fabrics
Tight, stretchy fabrics will only accentuate your tummy. Instead, opt for more free-flowing fabrics such as cotton which will not cling to your body.
#10. Never Tuck Your Shirt In
I'm not sure if anyone still tucks their shirt in, but if you do – please stop now! Tucking your shirt in is a major no-no, especially if you've got something to hide! Let the shirt flow over the pants, which will elongate your torso and hide your tummy. If your shirt is too long (too big), then it's just not a good fit for you!
