Baggy good-looking running tops that I can leave the house in

Inspired by a thread on here, I recently started running for the first time.

However, I've just realised that when I'm not posing in front of the mirror, and actually moving, my wobbly tummy is revoltingly mobile in the running top. I've just realised this, and hopped straight back into my jeans. Maybe I'll try again when it's dark and no one can see me.

Meanwhile, can anyone recommend a baggy tummy-friendly running top? I've searched Decathlon, Sports Direct, M&S and Gap to no avail.

I'm size 14-16 and have had 3 large babies who I blame entirely

Are you wearing nice snug running tights/ Capri bottoms to hold it in below the waist? Otherwise try tk maxx- they have loads of brands and you could have a big try on- Elle is good for ruching on the tummy, and sometimes they have double layer ones which are flattering.

Running jackets are the most slimming item of clothing ever invented. I have an addidas one where the sleeves can be zipped off to make a very lightweight gilet.

Another advantage of the jacket is you can tie it around your waist and cover a multitude.

Thank you for the replies. Haven't looked beyond internet sites so will get down to TK Maxx.

I did get a running jacket but it looks alarmingly unflattering.

Obviously, I just need to stop eating as well as start exercising sigh.
