To hide a flabby tummy, wear shapewear underneath an empire-waist dress or an A-line dress in a dark color. To slim the stomach even more, complete the look with a thick belt in a darker color than the dress.
- Wear shapewear
Shapewear instantly tightens and shapes your body, holding in flab. It also helps you to stand up tall and to improve your posture, which has a slimming effect on the stomach. To contain a flabby tummy, choose high-waisted shapewear in a style similar to bike shorts.
- Wear an empire-waist dress in a dark color
Empire-waist and A-line dresses create an hourglass shape which barely graze the stomach area, making them flattering choices when hiding a flabby tummy. Choose dresses that fit well, but are not too tight. Darker colors, such as black, navy blue or dark brown, disguise stomach flab especially well.
- Add a belt
Wear a belt that is about three to four inches thick with the dress. Thick belts create a corset effect, which flattens the stomach even more and gives more definition to your figure. For the most significant tummy-slimming results, choose a belt that is a darker color than the dress. Avoid thin belts, which draw more attention to stomach flab.
