Is it because I ate too much Easter chocolate… I am a little bloated…

I just feel like hiding this little belly that I don’t want to see!

And here are coming the big sweaters and baggy tunics in which we try to disappear…

Not a good choice!

We need a bit of subtlety to disguise what bothers us.

 

1/What you should forget

=> Stretch material that mark and reveal the binge eating (no lycra or stretch t-shirt! )

=> Fabrics too soft that stick on the body at the wrong place (like jersey for instance)

 

=> Shapeless and baggy cuts (ex: long sweater + large pants)

=> The too large belt around your waist that takes too much space and puts the focus on what bothers you

In general, avoid anything that marks the waist.

 

=> Fabrics with large horizontal stripes
