I’m also often asked about how to disguise tummies. First and foremost, I’d like to just say that we are all beautiful women and that we are meant to have tummies! But if yours isn’t your favourite asset then here’s a few tips on what to wear to make you feel more comfortable and give the impression you’ve had a non-surgical tummy tuck!
In a nutshell, the answer lies in showing off the slimmest parts of your body – often just under the bust. One of the best high street brands for this is Phase Eight who do a great range of empire line dresses and tunic tops, so they fit under the bust area and drape over the tummy. Worn with leggings and skinny jeans tunic tops give the illusion that everything beneath is as slim. Add a statement necklace to draw the eye up and away from the tummy area too.
If you are wearing trousers pick those with a flat front – no extra bulk in the tummy area – and make sure that tops aren’t fitted on the tummy or ending at the very part you want to conceal. Higher waisted jeans are great with a top over – try Salsa push-in jeans (currently on sale in House of Fraser!), Cora jeans from Phase Eight, or Not Your Daughter’s Jeans (NYJD) or the new IDA by Donna Ida – whichever fits your budget.
