It’s time for some insider mother of the bride style secrets! Last month in our style tips blog, we showed you how to deal with the age old problem of the upper arm area and this time ladies, we’re talking tummies. Many of us worry about the tummy area and struggle to find a dress that’s going to conceal our tummy and flatter our figures. And when you’re set to be the Mother of the Bride or Groom, tummy troubles should be the last thing on your mind. Thankfully at La Crème we’ve got several outfits to make you feel like you’ve had a tummy tuck.
Here’s some of our insider tips on finding a dress that’s going to flatter your tummy.
Rouching is a genius style hack for helping to hide a tummy. It cleverly uses subtle gathering to hide your tummy, while at the same time not drawing attention to the area. Look for dresses that offer panels or diagonal rouching around the tummy area, combined with stylish embellishments and details around the neckline to draw the eye away from the tummy. Our 110 John Charles Bluebell Lace Dress & Jacket is a wonderful example.
Nothing helps to flatter your figure more than a smart tailored fit and when it comes to giving yourself a style tummy tuck, chic tailoring is your new best friend. Look for mother of the bride dresses that are cut to effectively nip you in at the waist with belt or sash details. The result of a smart tailored fit is a smoother, slimmed down silhouette. Our 185 Cabotine Ice Blue Lace Dress & Bolero is a prime example of how tailoring works so well.
Higher Waistline –
A mother of the bride garment that cuts your tummy in the wrong place is a fashion disaster. To really achieve that tummy tuck effect, look for dresses with higher waistlines or empire lines that bring the waistline up higher above the worrisome tummy area. The result is that the fabric will skim over the tummy to leave you with a super-slim silhouette. Our pretty 186 Cabotine Light Pink Cowl Neck Dress & Bolero is a perfect example.
