How do you hide a rounded belly?

How do you hide a rounded belly?

Jane's answer... Many women have a stomach that's more prominent than we'd like, no matter what our horizontal or vertical body shape is.

However, the good news is there are a number of ways to disguise it! Here are some tips for hiding a rounded belly...

  • Choose semi-fitted clothing styles that skim the body. Styles that are too tight will emphasize a belly. Clothes that are too loose will make you look big all over

  • Look for styles that have horizontal or diagonal rouching over the tummy

  • Wrap tops and dresses, provided your bust is not too small

  • Wear an open jacket, cardigan, or waistcoat -- this adds slimming vertical lines

  • Wear focal points above the bust to attract attention to your face

  • Avoid emphasizing your waist with a belt, or waist-level horizontal design details in a top or dress

  • Avoid horizontal borders on tops

  • Avoid a change of color over the stomach, for example between your top and your bottoms -- this adds a horizontal line across your stomach, which makes it appear bigger
