Standing up straight instantly makes you look up to 5 pounds slimmer. By standing taller, you lose the ‘pot belly’ appearance that you have when you slouch. Imagine a piece of string being pulled from the top of your head and straightening your spine. Not only does this make you look and feel more confident, but it will help to smooth your silhouette too. It’s a fast and simple way to hide a flabby tummy in lingerie without using shapewear.

When choosing lingerie to hide a flabby tummy, avoid a tight waistband as this will create an unflattering ‘muffin top’. A high waisted brief is great for disguising the tummy. This is due to the full tummy coverage and comfort on the waist line.

A camisole is made from soft fabric and reaches the waist so it covers the top half of your body. A camisole is usually sleeveless and occasionally contains underwire to lift and flatter the bust too.

A baby doll teddy is a looser form of negligee which falls below the waist so it covers your stomach and hips too. With low necklines and a feminine cut to the fabric, these are a great way to disguise a bloated stomach whilst highlighting a great cleavage and killer legs.
