Is there anything more frustrating to hide than your muffin top? With my silhouette, I’m always looking for ways to slim my middle. I have narrow hips and thighs and carry my weight around my stomach.
Here’s how I hid it today when we went for lunch and window shopping in Pleasanton. Isn’t that a fun name? Almost as dreamy as Happyville.
These Trouser Jeans from Chico’s rise above my typical muffin top trouble area. I wasn’t sure I would like a waistband that is at my true waistline, but I do! I have a high rise, so most jeans intended for my waist, end below it. I may never tuck anything into them, but under tops, they help smooth my middle.
This Wrap-Over top from Covered Perfectly has the double benefit of a ruched waistband with a blouson effect! Double duty coverage for my muffin top. It comes in several colors, but Teal is always my favorite if it’s available.
Ruching camouflages many sins and done right, doesn’t add pounds to your silhouette.
This top also has 3/4 sleeves that help me look taller.
The little shops are charming and filled with things you don’t need but find fun.
We are off to camp on Lake Donner tomorrow. I think I’ve packed everything, including the kitchen sink! We’re even bringing a full-sized blow-up mattress, which is probably not appropriate 🙂
I’ll see you back here Sunday for Style Sweet Spot!
