One major cause of insecurity today is the big tummy, unfortunately, with the amount of carbohydrates; Eba, amala, pounded yam and our varieties of starchy foods, it’s no surprise that some ladies don’t have flat tummies. This is where it gets tricky, because though hiding a big tummy isn’t rocket science, lots of ladies find it difficult to wear clothes that hide the tummy, or is it just nonchalance? I hope not.

Here are 5 ways to flatter your big tummy.


If you wish to shift the attention to your outfit rather than the critical sections of your body, work with prints. Long gone are the days when you had to wear vertical stripes to look slimmer. This season you have free hand to go for dots, abstract and nomadic prints that suit your personality. These, when spread all over the tops and dresses, will definitely help you stand out from the crowd. The only condition to complete your task of slimming your stomach is to have them positioned on your clothes in vertical style. These designs will help you add some length to your silhouette.

Always remember to shift the attention to your best features. Generally, our body is not perfectly proportioned. Therefore, we have strong parts and more critical spots. In order to achieve overwhelming success it is important to keep the focus on the most impressive areas. If you have a large belly, it would be wise to play up the spotless look of your legs. The hottest jeans designs as well as cool short styles look stunning when paired with a loose fitting top or a jacket. This is one of the most efficient tricks you can use to strip off your confidence issues and dress to impress.

I think most women would prefer just to wear their clothes without this. But shape wear can really flatten or hide your belly in many cases, but it’s important that you still remain comfortable in it!

Ruched tops look simply irresistible when paired with your silhouette. However, you can extend the repertoire of ruched clothes also to dresses and even bathing suits. Use a similar visual tool to hide your prominent stomach.
Empire waists are some extra-details to look for when keen to hide your stomach.

Mask your belly with maxi dresses or stylish summer frocks that have this feature. Breezy fabrics and the soft texture of these dresses will help you achieve the desired visual effect. Stay up-to-the-minute with the hottest fashion trends of the moment and don’t forget about prints and patterns to arm up your look with versatility.

Asymmetrical dresses work well too as they draw attention away from the belly and create a vertical line.

Don’t wear over tight clothes, look for clothes that skim rather than cling. Make sure waistbands of trousers and skirts don’t dig in and create rolls. Make sure your underwear fits and doesn’t dig in and create bulges. If you want to look stylish and highlight your strengths, it is best not to wear tight tops. They will accentuate every fat bubble you have and draw attention away from you and your fabulous clothes.
