Avoid Pants or Skirts with Waist Detail
When you look at this pair of pants where does your eye go?
When you look at this skirt where does your eye go?
The tummy bow on the pants and the belt and pockets on the skirt add bulk and draw the eye to the tummy. Naturally these models don’t have an ounce of fat.
But if you are a real woman over 40 you’re bound to have some midlife bulge at your stomach and the details on these garments are going to draw the eye right to your trouble spot!
So here’s what you do if you have a big tummy and don’t want people to look at it.
Don’t emphasize it with belts,buckles, bows, pleats, pockets etc in that area.
Intead, wear flat front pants and skirts with wider waistbands to hold the tummy in and no detail.
Here are two examples, but in truth you probably want to tuck out or wear some good Spanx as these gals have!
If you tuck out wear a long top like this that gently flows over your tummy to cover up your jelly belly.
If you want to have a focal point make it up by your face by wearing a top with a pretty neckline or some jewelry or some embellishment on the top up high.
This way you are playing up where you want them to look ( your face) and downplaying where you don’t want them to look ( your men-o-pot).
