The empire line creates the illusion of a narrower and higher waist, accentuates your bust, flatters your curves, and covers your tummy. Not only that, but floral prints are a big fashion trend for 2022, which means you’ll be reaching for the dress again and again come spring.
A WONDERFUL WHITE A-LINE DRESS
Are you heading to a sunny climate? In addition to your best sunglasses, you’ll also want to pack an A-line dress. Universally flattering, this shape hangs from the shoulder and flows over the midriff. The shape is comfortable and airy, perfect as we head into the warmer months. While white dresses are usually shunned over black dresses, they are often seen as “slimming” when it comes to the summer months, a trapeze shape, even in white, paired with the best sandals looks stylish in any size.
HOBBS ANYA JACQUARD DRESS
Ruched sections and drapes are a stylish way to hide your tummy. A dress that has ruffles or draping across the stomach will skim over your stomach and skim over the areas where you are most confident.
Although this style is ideal for soft and fluffy fabrics, if you’re looking to dip your toe into the bodycon arena, then choosing a figure-hugging dress with a ruffle across the center is a flattering way to dress up something more fitted. You can also support the look with quality shapewear for a smoother surface.
ANOTHER CLOSING DRESS WITH AN ORDERED LINE
Everyone finds shopping for a special occasion outfit stressful, but if you’re also determined to find a dress to hide your tummy, the task can seem even more daunting. This gorgeous floral dress has summer wedding guests written all over it and the trendy animal print paired with the flattering V-neckline and wraps silhouette of the dress makes it an absolute winner for coverage and midsection.
Pretty ruffle detail on the hem will draw the eye down to your body, making you look longer and slimmer, while a bold print will cover your tummy. The wrap shape is one we know is flattering, which means dress envy is guaranteed.
KAREN MILLEN COLOR BLOCK DRESS
The best dress to hide your tummy isn’t always too big. You can also wear bodycon iterations, the trick is all in the print, pattern, and placement. The illusion dress has been one of those that have come in and out of fashion, but for those who want a stylish dress that hides their tummy, this is a look you should invest in whenever you get noticed. For this trick to work, look for a dress with a contrasting center panel. The contrast panel should be vertical on the dress and narrower than the width of your front piece. This smart central panel should generally be block color for maximum effect. The panel creates a narrow column and makes the eye see a smaller waistline and more defined curves. The block color panel will also make you look taller as the eye glides effortlessly up and down your figure. Since many illusion dresses have a figure-hugging fit, make sure you’re wearing the right basics—like the best shapewear—to flatter your shape.
