Huge stomach - enters room before I do. Exercise doesn't make it go away. Anyone else and if so, how do you disguise it?
I have this and wear with leggings or bare legs (if warm enough) and it is casual but very forgiving I.E does not hug, does not show lots of arm, you can wear strapless bra and this gives it extra sexiness if required
Hmm after posting on a thread recently about how to disguise my short fat dumpy self the general consensuS was topurchase some wide legged trousers to flatter.I got some nice linen ones from Next petite range and they have disguised the tum a bit.HTH.
have you got big bosom? seems likely if you are 16 top / 14 bottom. i am same shape.
need to balance out and not look top heavy while showing plenty of leg. aline skirts above knee. empire line is flattering. tops low necked and long tight sleeves. thicker fabric also good. skinny / straight jeans but not too tight. slim cropped trousers.
i also find straight lines better than curves, so v neck rather than scoop, even slash neck can be good, esp when i am fatter. but i have curly hair so also need to take that into account, it can all get a bit rounded looking.
Clur - The normal waist height ones send the flab over the top and the high waisted (come just under the bust) ones roll down!!!! I know - I have a range....all of them promised me great things and all of them let me down or at least, didn't keep me in!
The best pants, IMHO, are 'full briefs', but not the control type; they just displace the roll elsewhere. Normal full briefs sort of contain and compact the area. I find this helps, not least because the main problem area is notpokingout so visible.
