1 Bump

Shopping this weekend. Any clothing tips to hide the mommy belly?

I am shopping on Sunday at Wal-Mart, Aeropostle, and whatever other stores you suggest. I am a thin girl so when I got big and pregnant 2 years ago it really stretched out the skin on my stomach and it never went back to normal. It is this stupid floppy bulge there on my otherwise thin body! I also have small breasts so the skin just looks odd there.

If I wear anything too tight it makes me look pregnant again, if I wear things too loose it looks odd on my thin frame. What to wear!!!???

  • i would wear something tight oon your breasts that kina flairs out around the tummy. and just so you know i had that too. the right excercises will tighten it up. i talked to a personal trainer at a gym. i only paid for one month so i could learn the trick to it but i had my floppy skin thing almost all the way tightened back up.....until i found out i wass preggers again.

  • This is my last year in school so they should also be appropriate for work after graduation.
