MUFFIN TOP HELP ME PLEASE - Have a horrible tummy, still, but quite good legs and bum... Need casual tops advice

I can't bear my muffin top.

I am trying to lose it. But when I want to wear trousers or jeans, what kind of casual or going out tops to wear? I have completely run out of inspiration scanning various websites... All models skinny and never had kids...

What do you guys wear with jeans?

have you tried control pants?

If not, layering usually works. A thin long sleeved top underneath a slightly baggier shorter sleeved top which can be artfully ruched o'er problem area.

Maybe you need to change your jeans? I bought these just after Christmas and I am impressed with the way they hold me in, don't seem to be low rise, they denim is very soft and stretchy too, so they are quite forgiving imho.

I would like to try these too, they look like they have an inbuilt control panel almost!

Just got some high waisted jeans from Next come in skinny, bootcut and wide leg. I too have the dreaded muffin top after 3 kids! The jeans from next are great and only £25. If you have good legs I would try skinnies with tunics or the layering as Cybil suggests with other types of jeans. Good luck

wear the skinnies suggested with a cute blouse top

This style, possibly with a vest underneath could work too

or this and this, both have gathered material that skims rather than clings.
