Having an attractive waist-to-hip ratio is a key aspect of feminine beauty. But what if your belly is your problem area?
The good news is that there are some simple fashion tricks you can use to instantly trim your tummy and slim your waistline.
Not only will these tricks make you appear thinner, they will also help you achieve a more feminine, hourglass shape.
If that sounds exciting, let’s dive into my top 7 belly-flattening fashion tips for crossdressers and MTF transgender women!
Trick #1: Wear a Shaping Camisole
Corsets and girdles will certainly pull you in, but they’re not very comfortable for daily wear.
Instead, wear a shaping camisole under your clothes. It’s a wonderful alternative for trimming inches from your waist and belly – while still allowing you to breathe.
Trick #2: Try a Tummy-Minimizing Peplum
Peplums are a fantastic clothing style for crossdressers and MTF transgender women, as they are both feminine and flattering.
A peplum is a short overskirt attached at the waistline of a top, dress, or jacket that’s perfect for covering a full belly.
And thanks to the fit-and-flare styling, a peplum will also give you that sexy hourglass shape.
Trick #3: Avoid Bottoms That Sit Too Far Above or Below Your Waistline
If you’re dealing with a larger belly, it’s important to consider the placement of your skirt or pants’ waistband. Ideally, the waistband should sit just below your belly button.
- If the waistband is too high, it can create the appearance of your stomach bulging out from below.
- On the other hand, if the waistband is too low, it can lead to that undesirable “muffin top” look.
Trick #4: Wear a Light Colored Jacket Over a Dark Top
To minimize the appearance of a larger tummy, consider wearing a light-colored jacket over a dark top.
The jacket acts as a cover-up, while the dark color underneath helps your belly blend into the background.
For optimal results, opt for a jacket that has some structure to it. Princess seams, in particular, are a feminine and flattering feature to look for.
Trick #5: Downplay Belly Rolls With a Ruched Top
Ruching, which refers to fabric that is gathered along the seam line, is an excellent choice for hiding a larger belly.
Unlike flat fabrics that tend to highlight every bulge, ruching helps conceal what’s underneath – including those unwanted belly rolls.
Trick #6: Just Say “NO” to Tight Clothes
If your belly is your trouble spot, it’s important to steer clear of wearing overly tight clothing.
Clothes that are too tight (including bras and panties) will dig in and create unsightly bulges – calling even more attention to these areas.
Trick #7: Avoid Oversized Clothes
Just as you should avoid clothes that are too tight, neither do you want to wear clothes that are too loose.
Trying to hide a big belly under an oversized top just makes you look bigger. The key is to opt for clothing that gracefully skims your midsection instead of drowning it.
Don’t worry if your belly is a bit of a concern. The good news is, there are plenty of ways to minimize it and achieve that ideal hip-to-waist ratio.
What really matters is feeling self-assured as a crossdresser or transgender woman, and the right outfit can make all the difference!
