Women always think about how they can look good. Unfortunately, not everything is under control. We can’t decide everything. By that time, we are experiencing weight gain in our bellies (I am not yet). That’s where flattering tops come to help.
Thankfully, there are some ways to hide some extra lbs. I’m going to share useful tips with you today. Be sure, they definitely help to solve that problem.
Flattering Tops To Hide Tummy
First of all, you need to know what type of tops will work for you. There are some options out there.
Get Away From Very Tight Tops
Actually not only for the tummy but also if you gain extra weight on your body, avoiding tight tops will surely be the better idea.
Instead, choose flattering tops that have a ruffle or ruching details on them. They will get more attention from people.
And your belly fat won’t be as noticeable as before.
Wear Something That Takes More Attention
I mean, you can wear a top or blouse, that has something unusual. Something that people will pay attention to.
That way, your tummy will be less remarkable.
What actually works for it? Let me give you some examples so that you can understand what I exactly mean.
You should get rid of those solid, simple print flattering tops. Instead, you need to choose enormous, colorful, or even striped prints.
People’s eyes will now be busy looking at your clothes prints and not your tummy. And also you will feel more confident in yourself.
Put On Long Flattering Tops With Your Leggings
If you’ve already been on my blog, you will notice how I love leggings. I can speak about them all the time. Btw you may need to check out my post about, how you can wear leather leggings as well.
So, here’s the next option for you to hide that damn tummy.
Leggings that tuck in the tummy will be a perfect option for you. They will fit comfortably around your belly and that way you will look fabulous too.
Long flattering tops or even tunics are other options to dress with leggings. If you follow my previous tip, no one will notice your belly fat.
Also, long cardigans or coats will make your body look straight. I mean, they will hide extra parts of your body.
But that’s more likely for fall and winter.
But in summer you can change the coat (or cardigan) to a vest. I mean sleeveless vests, that will add layers to your outfit.
More layers = less attention to details of your body.
Stay Away From Tiny Belts
If you love wearing belts and you are reading this, don’t think that you have to completely avoid wearing them.
I just wanna tell you, putting a very little belt on your waistline, is not a very good approach.
Because it draws a line of your stomach area, and focusing on the problematic area should not be a perfect idea.
Instead, if you are going shopping, try to find at least a 1-inch belt for your jeans or pants.
But if you wear a belt above your waistline, I mean, under your bust, that’s on the contrary, a big plus for you.
So, the sizing of belts doesn’t matter that way.
Peplum Or A-line Flattering Tops
Look, there are so many options to hide your tummy. Here are two other options.
Flattering tops with peplums is a great choice if you are struggling with the problem.
That’s because these types of tops are designed that way to show more of your very high waistline. Then it stops for the stomach area and it’s becoming flattering.
And guess what, your belly is not showing at all.
And what about a-line flattering tops?
They are ideal for people with a big belly or stomach area. It works perfectly because it starts flattering from your arms all the way down to your waistline, maybe even longer.
So, it will hide everything extra on your body.
Tops with ruches
When you have a tummy, it’s not a very good idea to wear tops or dresses with a stretchable fabric.
It will just make the tummy appear as it is in reality.
But tops with ruches are great for this because they somehow hide the tummy and make the body look more elegant as well.
Off-shoulder tops make your shoulders more noticeable. So, they make the tummy area less detectable.
Do you get it?
Furthermore, off-shoulder tops have some space around your waist, because it’s their neutral shape.
And this will help you to hide that rude belly in that space.
What To Wear When You Have Big Arms?
That’s another pretty famous problematic thing in styling.
Personally, I don’t face this problem yet but there are some people around me, who do. So, I decided to discover and share some tips to “get the key out of the door”.
Off-shoulder Flattering Tops
Since you have a big arm problem, let’s move people’s attention to another side, such as the shoulders.
That’s what off-shoulder tops will do for you. They actually cover your arms, where you have that flabby and fat arms area. And another way, they show off your shoulders a bit more.
Keep An Eye Of Your Top’s Armholes
That’s the tip you need to remember before you go to stores.
When you are looking for a new top for your wardrobe, choose the one that has a bigger hole for the arms section.
Because tight armholes will make your arms bigger and you will look fatter as well.
Boat-Neck Tops Or Blouses
As you can see here, boat neck tops show more of your collar line, and it’s getting more attention from people. So no one notices your big arms anymore.
Lace Sleeves Will Become Your Best Friend
Actually, not only for big arms but also you need to know that lace tops are becoming very trending for the following year.
So, flattering tops with lace sleeves just look perfect. That’s true, your arms are showing but others can’t see how big they are.
Keep that in mind, or just try doing it in the mirror. If you think that’s working, you are ready to go.
Another great piece of clothing that will help you is a top with 3/4 sleeves.
What it does is, it shows the smallest part of your arm, so it creates the illusion that your arms are smaller than they really are.
Get help with layers
If you want to easily hide your flabby arms, always think about layer pieces.
It can be anything starting from a regular cardigan to a blazer. No matter what style or dress code you aim for, you can wear anything.
Just wear it.
Wrap tops are the winner
Wrap tops are not great only for flabby arms, but they are perfect for any problem that I am mentioning here today.
So, I would say, that wrap tops are a universal solution for all of your problems.
Stay away from cap sleeves
Cap sleeves end exactly where the shoulders are the widest in size.
So they make your arms look larger than they really are.
Instead, you should go for tops that have more details on that area.
Flutter sleeves feature ruffles around the arm, so choose a top with draping or extra space in that area.
You just have to be sure that it covers the largest part of your arm.
Avoid wearing tops with details on your arms
If the top has some floral print or some other eye-catching details on the arms they are NO for you.
What they do is, draw eyes to your arms.
And since you want to hide them, it’s obvious that it’s not a good idea to wear them.
Flattering Tops For Big Bust
Here comes another common problem for women. But I have some tips for you to fix that.
First Choose The Right Bra
If you don’t have the right size of your bra, you may not be able to look good in your fabulous tops. You need to make sure, your bra has full-breast coverage. It shouldn’t over-accent your chest shape.
Find Your Desired Neck Style
If you have a big bust, you should know that the v-neck style is your perfect choice. It makes your silhouette slimmer and directs your eyes downwards.
That’s what you actually want.
So, start thinking about getting a new v-neck-flattering top.
Along with V-necklines, you can also try tops with square, scoop, U-neck, and cowl necklines.
Actually, you know what? Remember that if you have a big bust don’t wear tops with full coverage.
They make them look even larger.
Use Your Waistline
Maybe you thought now, what the hell can the waist do with the bust?
Believe me, it can.
What you need to do is to wear dresses or even tops, that show your waistline.
You can use the belt for it as well. Just make sure your waistline is more noticeable than your bust. That way, you make people pull their eyes down to the legs from your chest area.
