10 Pieces That Hide a Muffin Top
By Elise Minton Tabin |
There's nothing worse than having your muffin top on display for the world to see. But if you want to make it appear like it doesn't exist in mere seconds, you need to follow this formula, which will make any extra fat pockets less noticeable. First off, put on a pair of shapewear, which will give you a good foundation and smooth everything out. Next, you'll want to throw on a pair of high-waisted jeans so that you have more material above your waistline—too little cuts the area and causes spillage. Lastly, add a loose, flowy top—anything with a peplum shape is good—to help hide fat on your stomach. Here are our favorite mix-and-match pieces to nail the look.
