  • I like layers to hide a belly. A long cami with lace that comes atlease to the hips and a short sleeved shirt on top. You can dress cute and still dress your age. just don't wear stuff that is too revealing. Dress stuff up with jewelry to draw attention away from your belly. I prefer solids and avoid tiny prints.

  • It might help you to find out what your body type is, and then dress for that body type. I subscribed to the Missus Smartypants style website and it's really helped me dress for my type (I am a type D). I also recommend the teez-her brand shirts--they have a built in panel that helps make your tummy look smaller. I found mine at Belk's here in NC, but you can google "teez-her" and find them in your area too. Good luck!

  • Well accentuate your good features, skinny legs? fitted blue jeans, a ruffled top (in style rigth now) so are sequined tops---all to hide the belly issue. Maybe a cardigan will look cute with the pair. and some heels. I can see it now, and you look smashing!!
