Last week in Part 1 of How to Hide Your Midlife Tummy we talked about what tops to wear to hide your midlife tummy. Today’s tip is on how to hide that little “pooch” of a tummy and is all about fit.
We would like to urge you to try something new. If you have been wearing clothes that are all the same shape, why not try something with a little fit!
Wear A Fitted Jacket that has some style to it!
|Too Boxy||Slimming and Youthful|
When you have a big tummy the tendency is to hide it under a big boxy jacket, but that is only going to make you look big overall.
What you really need to do is buy a jacket that nips in at the waist. A straight up and down styles have no shape. It adds bulk especially if you keep it buttoned up.
An updated jacket should be shorter and have definition at the waist. Here is what you should look for:
- A jacket that skims your body creating a feminine silhouette
- Updated patterns and colors are youthful
- Look for little details that add interest, like soft ruffles
- zippers and angled pockets are always slimming and youthful
If you usually wear boxy, this might take some getting used to but you will look 10 pounds thinner, instantly!
