The only way to completely eliminate your muffin-top is to perform cardio and clean-eating, with plenty of fruits and veggies. But if you looking for ways to hide your muffin-tops, I’ve got some tips for you!
Usually, the bulging fat (or bulging skin in the case of scrawny people) is caused by too tight of clothes. This can happen to anyone, big or small. If larger clothes don’t work, or if you loathe the idea of moving up a size, then the upcoming tips will help as well.
Avoid material that clings to your body and try to pick longer shirts. You can choose shirts that are looser at the top of your hips but tightens at the bottom (below your muffin-top), or shirts that are tighter at the waist (the smallest part of your body) and loosens up over the love handles and hips. Also, button-up shirts are amazing!
Don’t be afraid of patterns. However, tiny polka-dots aren’t always the best choice. Try bigger patterns instead. Everyone has heard that black is slimming. In most cases, that’s true, but just because something is black, doesn’t mean it’s camouflaging your size or muffin-top.
A sneaky way of disguising your love handles is slimming undergarments. Spanx is a common shapewear. You can find a large selection of websites with slimming undergarments, such as HerRoom.com.
Low-rise jeans are not a muffin-top’s friend! The love handles will simply “spill” over the top of the jeans, so higher-rise jeans are better. (However, I’m not talking about “mom” jeans.)
You can mix-match your shirts. Layers. Layers. Layers. A vest or tailored jacket are wonderful top layers.
You can hide your muffin-tops by wearing baggy clothes, but the result is just an all-over larger appearance. Give n’ take. Note: Baggy clothes are not the same as looser fitting clothes. So instead of wearing baggier clothes, wear clothes that pull the focus away from the parts you want to hide – in this case, your muffin-top. If you dare, wear a lower cut shirt that shows off your cleavage. Avoid the pornographic approach, though. If you don’t want to show that much skin, you can opt for a shirt that has glamorous or attention-grabbing embroidery, bead work, or design. You can also wear a belt either slung around your hips or cinched around your waist.
