Camouflage of a Slight Tummy
I genetically have always had a little "pot" belly, even at my skiniest. After 2 kids, I think I look pretty good but do try to camoflague the belly :) I always thought that when wearing a top you wanted it to end below the point that you were trying to de-empansize, but my mom said she saw a thing on TV that said you should actually bisect it to break up the line (in the case on tv they were talking about the butt I believe).
To be honest, I've spent so much of my life worrying about my thighs that I hadn't really thought about this. Here's what I found when I looked it up:
- Diagonal lines are always slenderizing.
- They may have been referring to construction lines. I modeled a pair of jeans with a very deep waistband for my family and the consensus was they may have made me look smaller.
- The style pictured here would translate that concept to tops and tummies.
To learn more techniques to camouflage or highlight particular body characteristics, you could buy the book. I've seen it here for as low as in the $30 - $40 range (or there's always the library).
By the way, did I mention that Coutorture now has Channels and is broken down into Communities? I am thrilled to be included in the Advice Community.
