Tips and Tricks to Disguise Your Tummy

Tips and Tricks to Disguise Your Tummy

Do you find yourself excitedly heading to the shopping centre, only to come away because you can't find anything to suit?


As we get older, we find ourselves donning a muffin top, a third tyre or a tummy. Whatever we call it, it can make it difficult to find the perfect dress to disguise our belly! Luckily, there are so many dresses available to flatter our shape and style, so we've found some of our favourites for you.


Draping and knots


Draping and knots around the waist can perfectly conceal your tummy by ruching or laying over the tummy area, whilst defining or creating a waist at the same time.

Wrap dresses


Like knot dresses, wrap dresses ruche around your tummy to disguise any lumps and bumps, and create a waist. Bonus points for any tie detailing; this acccentuates your waist and hides your tummy even more!

 Some avoid peplum hems as they think they add bulk to the tummy area, but we believe they disguise it! Peplum dresses are perfect for work and occasions, and create a pretty hourglass shape.

We all know horizontal stripes make you look taller and slimmer, but make sure you choose narrow stripes to really elongate your frame!
