Will a boho <shudder> disc type belt make my hips look slimmer ?

I'm not particularly 'hippy'/pear-shaped at all, but they have definitely widened since pregnancy etc. I used to look tall, leggy and a bit willowy in jeans, but now I have a tendency to look dumpier (despite being a sz 12 with 32 in inside leg). Will an oversized belt make me look slimmer or just like I'm trying to hard ???

this sort of thing

they look good if you are short waisted - they can make your body look longer

are you going to wear with jeans or low slung over skirts?

I don't think I'm particularly short waisted either...

jeans probably, just to update my maternal uniform of jeans and white top

Oh the shame

If you are tall I think it would look great and a simple update to a normal wardrobe without looking too much. If you were short it might not be the best thing

go for it ndp i think they are cool but im too small

jeans would have to be inspiral carpet ones though, no drainpipes

Totally, but I think the disk ones are a bit overdone. I have a lovely wide leather cream one from River Island that I adore. River Island is fabulous for belts so I would totally go there.

Maybes Topshop but they tend to be a bit uber for me.
