I think I've been indulging too much in those culinary tips so my waist too is a roll of fat
I found those 'pannier' skirts, the ones that make your hips look a bit wider, quite helpful as it makes your waist look smaller. I got one from French Connection and another in an Orla Kiely sample sale. Or have a look at skirts with a wide waistband, some of those 50s style full skirts are nice, Boden do them- I think they are called swishy skirts?
I'm a tall apple. V-necks definitely good. I steer completely clear of high necks or scoop necks. Anything that nips in directly under the bust is good, as long as it's not too flowy to make you look pregnant. Slim legged jeasn better than skinny I think, if your lacking in hip.arse department.
