  • Wear form fitting clothes that fit well (not too tight). That's always the most slimming look on anyone.

  • wear something with a tighter fitting top at the bust line that flows slightly away from the waste at the waste line. Like this:|50435|56277&Fltr=&Srt=&QL=F&IND=8&cmVirtualCat=&CmCatId=50434|50435|56277|50435|56277&Fltr=&Srt=&QL=F&IND=36&cmVirtualCat=&CmCatId=50434|50435|56277|50435|562

  • Avoid prints on the lower half of your body - black is always a great slimming color, if you wear black slacks or skirt and any colored top, always a nice look.

  • I really like empire tops to cover up a slightly chubby stomach. Those are the ones that are tight until just under the breasts then flare out a bit. You can get all kinds of pretty ones. I also usually wear darker colors to look slimmer.

    High waisted, firm fitting skirts look really great on kind of pear shaped women like me. It really highlights our great curves! Bottoms that don't look good on a medium build? "boyfriend" style jeans, they make you look wider than you are, and too tight/too short skirts or shorts.

    I think the best thing to do is when you try something on and know that it looks great, look for other clothes in a similar shape. Don't just wear the trends!

  • try buying the right kind of jeans to hide the bulge. Higher wasted jeans (not above the belly button but close to the belly button) will hide the belly well. Try Sonoma jeans from Kohl's or try shopping for some in the Misses Department instead of the juniors department. Junior jeans are always low cut and fit well for people with flat stomachs.
