If you’re just starting your weight loss journey or are in the middle of it, wearing clothes that look and feel good can give you the confidence boost you need to keep going! Even people at an ideal weight can have extra fat on their hips and waist, creating that muffin top effect. Thankfully, with a bit of style magic, that muffin top can be expertly hidden. Here are six tips and styles to help you out.
Choosing clingy clothing will automatically showcase every curve, even those you’d rather keep hidden. By choosing clothing that has a structure to it, your extra curves are less likely to show.
Peplum tops accentuate your bust while remaining flowy around your midsection. They’re cute, stylish, and come in every color you can imagine. They also come in tank, half sleeve, and full sleeve versions, so you can find something for every season.
Low-rise jeans that are tight will automatically put that muffin top on display. By wearing high-waisted jeans, you’re showcasing your waistline instead of the extra weight on your hips. You also want jeans with a bit of elastic along the waistband, so they aren’t too tight.
Like peplum tops, empire waist dresses sit underneath your bust and flow outwards below. This style will look amazing on any body type with an ample figure and accentuate all the right parts. Plus, they’re adorable and can be found in every color and many patterns.
If empire dresses aren’t your style, consider wearing a wrap dress. These dresses cinch at the waistline and remain a bit loose above and below, making you feel comfy while looking fabulous.
Taking attention away from your body shape can help a lot. By bringing attention to your shoulders with cold shoulder tops and dresses or open necklines, you’ll bring the eye of the beholder higher and away from the parts you’re self-conscious about. You can add a statement necklace to double this effect.
Remember: Regardless of what you’re wearing, confidence is key. The more confident you are, the less your muffin top matters. Stand tall and proud, and you’ll feel great in whatever you wear!
