Keep that tummy in great shape

Feel like after having your babies it's been a real task losing weight around the tummy, don't stress. Undergarments are called foundation garments for a good reason!

No matter what your age or wardrobe challenges, wearing the right undergarments is a prerequisite for looking great in your clothes.

When you wear undergarments to hide a tummy you have several choices according to website Fabulous after 40

High waist panty

This foundation garment works great under pants or jeans. Make sure the top of the garment is under your bra and that you're not creating extra bumps.

High-waist shorts

These shorts create a smooth look (no lines) and are great to wear under clingy dresses, jersey pants or any garment that is clinging and revealing.

Slimming Tank: This tank is also a great choice to wear under pants or jeans. It will slim your waist area and not create bumps anywhere else.

Open bust camisole: Just the thing to wear with pants or jeans. If your bust is small and you'd like to add a little lift to it, this is the perfect garment to do it.

Choosing clothing styles that are slimming and flattering

Choose styles that glide over your tummy and waist and take attention from that area.

Empire waist dresses — the wonderful thing is they suit any body type, and they will hide a tummy and drape nicely over problem areas.

Be sure to choose them in your best colour.

Tops — the best tops to hide a large mid-section are tops in a printed material, tops in a light fabric that don't cling, and tops that are not tight.

Jeans — the most flattering jeans for women who want to conceal a tummy are those that end at the belly button or one inch below the belly button.

Choose jeans in a stretch denim for the best comfort and a more slimming look. Also, buy them in a dark colour.
