Dress to hide stomach but show off cleavage
30

redlipped · 05/09/2020 15:37

I'm going on a date on Friday. I have met this guy a few times and I'm going to be heading to his house for the first time. Without sugar coating it, I want to show off my cleavage but hide my belly. I'm 5ft9 and a size 12/14. I've only had big boobs for a 18 or so months and have no idea how to show them off whilst also covering my belly. I've googled plunge dresses but can't seem to find any that aren't either frumpy floral long sleeved things, or skin tight. AIBU in thinking that there must be an in between option? Ideally nothing over £40. If anyone can help, thank you!

Try an empire line? I wear this style a lot but plain not patterned my fave is the Hope style from Masai clothing.

Look up trapeze dresses.

Have you looked at wrap dresses, I think they'd be right?

I have a John Zack wrap front dress from asos in about that price range. Black, shows off cleavage. Wraps stomach. Not sure if it comes in your size though(maybe plus size range) , but worth a look.

Definitely either a wrap dress or a tea dress (diamond shaped over the boobs) shape. I've just bought this dress from Hell Bunny which has the tea dress shape to to the top and it's incredibly flattering. I'm a size 18 (38ff or 36g) and the size 2x fits me perfectly.

New look have some nice wrap/tea dresses this season. Boohoo do as well but they are rather short, at 5'9 they might be skimming your bum. Not sure if they have a tall section.
Oh have a look at asos too.

Skater dresses..
They are tighter/revealing at the top, but they flair out at the waist.

Would you consider a high waist leather pencil skirt with a plunge top instead?

Otherwise something drapey works well to hide the old tummy.

Wrap dress....all the way! This is my go to outfit it choice for most nights out and when I used to go on dates.
They show off cleavage beautifully and skim over the parts we wish to disguise.
God, I'd be lost without wrap dresses

Yes! I never understand wearing empire line when you have a big stomach - it just screams maternity, or at least it does with my shape.

Wrap dresses do not work for lots with a larger bust (there was a recent thread on here).
This is a great shape only £33 in sale www.monsoon.co.uk/savea-sustainable-bardot-hanky-hem-midi-dress-red-84232319.html

Maybe a lovely white oversized shirt dress? I’m in my 20s always get compliments when I wear this, sometimes accessorise with a belt or wear heeled sandals/trainers/knee boots. I’m flat chested but assume you could get decent cleavage going if you undo a button
