How to dress if you want to hide your belly fat

If you want to know how to hide your belly fat, this is the right place for you. These are my suggestions for designs and cuts for camouflaging the belly area. If you have suddenly gained weight around your belly area or if you are a new mother , then these tips will be useful for you.

TOPS

Tops ending below belly

If you wear a top ending at the largest part of the stomach, then attention will be drawn to that area. The clever thing is to buy tops which end below your abdomen.

Asymmetrical tops

The flowy design camouflages the fat part of the belly. The silhouette of the top will not expose the actual shape of your tummy.

Peplum top

Another flattering top is a peplum top which is fitted at the waist and then flows outward. Example, this top.

DRESSES

This is in my opinion, the best dress to hide a big belly. An a-line dress flares out from a fitted waist. Your waist is the narrowest part of your body so by wearing an aline dress, you are diverting attention from the largest part of your stomach.


Empire dress

An empire dress has a fitted bodice which ends just below the bust and then skims over the rest of the body loosely. An example, would be this. Since it skims and does not hug it, iit covers your stomach without emphasising its shape.

Ruffles

Another way of covering your belly is wearing a ruffle dress. The frills distract the eye and creates an overall flowy effect.

OUTER LAYER

What I like to call is the third piece, is also called outerwear in many fashion websites. The 3rd piece  for should ideally end below the chubby part of your stomach. Therefore long shrugs, cardigans, gilets, waistcoats are a great way to make your paunch look smaller. A waterfall collar is more flattering as it lends a v shape to your chest area which points the eye to the waist, the narrow part of your body.


These are my top outfit  suggestions for hiding your stomach. I am 100% sure that these will give you the look you want without you having to wear baggy loose fitted clothes for hiding your stomach.
