Pants for the Belly Bulge!

You need to avoid anything that rides too low. Hip-huggers are not your best friend. Put them down and move away. You also do not want any jeans or pants that constrict your waistline. They'll make your midsection look like a topographical map -- ridges and bulges everywhere.

Pick pants that are flat-fronted with side zips, a great urban look that pulls the tummy in and doesn't offer the eye any distractions. You can also invest in some control-top underwear. It doesn't sound all that fun, but it works wonders, and today's offerings are greatly advanced from the torturous devices women used to suffer through.

If you are a jeans addict and must have a pair, get low-waisted jeans that are a size too big for you, to create just a smidge of hang. This will minimize your belly and make your waist look all the leaner. Note that low-waisted jeans are not the same as hip-huggers. Your hipster days are, sadly, over.

What shorts you should wear will be determined predominantly by your legs -- how much are you willing to show? Pay attention to the tricks used for pants, such as side zippers and low waists, and apply them to whichever shorts do the most for your legs. Whatever you do, don't buy baggy shorts with pockets in the front -- you'll hate yourself later when you catch a glimpse in the storefront window. Bulges upon bulges. Not good.
