Hide tummy bulge with these styles

Fitted blazer

Don't start wearing oversized clothes when you gain a little weight. Big clothes will make you look even bigger than you are. For the office, wear a fitted blazer that nips at the waist. Look for fabrics with a little bit a stretch to enhance your curves and hide your tummy.

Empire waist

An empire waist blouse or dress is an easy way to hide any extra weight in your midsection. The empire waist is fitted right under your bust, then drapes nicely the rest of the way down without clinging your body. Don't go to extremes and wear a babydoll top -- it might make you look pregnant.

Banded top

Look for tops that are banded at the hemline. A top like this should hit at the hip, creating a blouson effect that easily covers up any tummy bulge. You can wear a banded top with jeans on the weekend or with a straight skirt at work.

Tunics

Fortunately, tunics are very trendy right now. From tunic length sweaters to swingy A-line tunic tops, you are sure to find a few tunics that you love. Wear them with pencil skirts, slim jeans or just about anything else in your closet. Choose a material that doesn't cling to your body but drapes nicely to disguise figure flaws.
