What blouses look best for bigger stomachs

How to Minimize the Belly with clothing

If you have a protruding belly that you want to minimize with clothing, then choose blouses that fit properly, yet are loose in the belly and hip area.

Empire tops, small vertical striped blouses, blouses gathered above the bust area that drape loosely, unbuttoned jackets over blouses, blouses that do not cling to the body and blouses that fit loosely at the hips all work well.

Avoid belting the waist area. Accessories are used to draw attention to an area, and a belt is an accessory.

Avoid horizontal stripes that visually add width, and blouses that cling to the less desirable parts of the tummy area.

Remember, loose fitting clothing does not mean oversized clothing. Choosing blouses that fit properly at the shoulders, bustline and hips will do more to minimize your appearance that oversized clothing. Oversized clothing will make you look larger… the reverse of what you are trying to accomplish.
