How To Hide Your Midlife Tummy – Part 1

How To Hide Your Midlife TummyMost of us have it… that darn donut!  It’s right there in the middle between our bust and our hips and it’s hard to avoid after age 40 and a baby or two, short of  liposuction. How can you dress to hide that stubborn midlife tummy that annoys you to no end?



Follow my six part series to find out how.  Part 1 begins with this tip: Wear Tops that Draw the Eye Upward                                                    

V-Neck with Empire Waist Top V-Neck Wearing a top that shows some skin up top opens up your chest area, makes your neck look longer and your whole body look leaner.
Top to Hide Midlife Tummy Interesting Neckline A neckline like this also works because of the interesting detail that tricks one’s eye  to look up at your shoulders and not down at your tummy.

  1. Anyone know what stores would carry this thong.

  2. Normally, I don’t like girdles of any type- too restrictive and they send the wrong message about my body- however, those lacy spanx are pretty darned cute. My hubby might even thing they’re a treat for him! Thanks gals for rescuing my meno-pot!



    Ideas for the Romantically Challenged

    • Hi Dina,
      Well, we think you might have coined a new term “meno-pot”….LOL!!!
      Yes, we have been looking for a pretty and supportive thong…and its finally here!!!

  3. Deb, you have to know there is likely a garment to address all our little and not so little flaws. Every, every woman has flaws and if a garment helps hide it, minimize it or possibly make it disapper- sorry don’t think we are there yet, then by all means try it. Shapewear will likely never look sexy but those high waisted thongs are pretty sexy if you ask me. I know you didn’t but anyway.
