What to wear in the summer to hide a "mum tum"?

Just as the title says really! Two c sections and I have a delightful overhang. I'm fed up of wearing giant baggy tops that look like I'm wearing a bin bag.
Suggestions please!

The blouses in asda hang really nicely over the tummy area and can be dressed up or down, keep you cool too,default,sc.html#,default,sc.html

I prefer dresses, especially ones that are fitted on top, and skim the tummy area. Not always easy to find though.

I've gone for a loose fitting denim tunic, a stripey swing type dress and a couple of a line cut dresses for this summer.
I also got a lovely pleated skirt from asda that sits quite high on my waist and skims my overhang, and an a line denim skirt with buttons down the front hat is quite stretchy and again sits quite high. Surprisingly flattering. Both the skirts were from Asda too actually!
