7 Styling Tricks To Hide That Tummy Bulge Almost Every Girl Has

Bodies come in different shapes, sizes, and structures. So do bellies. Some people have flat ones, some washboard, and some curvy.  Forget the media ads and fitness products that tell you that having a tummy bulge is a problem - it’s not! All you have to do is know how to play it right and you’re ready to own the world! And here are 7 fab ways you can do that!

1. Wear draped outfits with wider silhouettes

However, you must go for loose drapes in an outfit with a wider silhouette if you are attempting to achieve this effect. Tightly-fitted drapes will only cause your natural shape to be emphasised more, thus creating a defined tummy line, which is probably not what you are looking to do if you are reading this article.

2. Ditch belts

Belts are not your best friends, if you are looking to restructure your stomach area to create the illusion of less volume. This is because belts tend to only emphasise the area over which they are put on by drawing the attention of the eye towards it. So if you are looking to exude the image of a flatter tummy, do avoid belts. Also read: 8 Sneaky Styling Tricks To Hide A Not-So-Flat Tummy!

3. Wear untucked shirts and tops

4. Layering is awesome

Layering is another great trick to make your tummy appear smaller than it is. Layering your clothes by putting on a jacket or trench coat - what our fashion writers call “The Third Piece Rule” - will definitely help your tummy area look slimmer. This is because the added layers balance the tummy against the width of the body, thus making it appear smaller.

5. Say yes to shapewear

Corsets, bodysuits, waist cinchers, shaping panties are all the options you have if flattening your tummy area is something you are looking to do. Invest in smart lingerie for a softened tummy line.

6. Avoid fitted garments with ruching or drapes on the torso

Fitted garments with ruching or drapes, especially around the torso or tummy area will only serve to emphasise your stomach. This is because such outfits tend to emphasise your natural body silhouette and your natural tummy line. If that’s not what you want, you should stay miles away from such drapes!

7. Try flared or flowy tops, skirts, and dresses

Try an A-line dress or a flared top - the volume on such outfits will help balance out the proportions of your body and create an illusion of a slimmer upper body overall.
