After The Tummy Tuck: Accentuating A Brand New Shape

Posted on: 12 May 2016


A tummy tuck is very freeing for women who have often spent years trying to hide their belly bulge. Their surgery may have come at the end of a substantial weight loss or it may have been a decision to eliminate that one bump that was never going to be as flat as they would like. Either way, after years of trying to camouflage their tummy, many women want to accentuate their shapely new form. There are a number of ways to do this while still wearing work and age-appropriate clothing. Here are a few things every woman should add to her closet after a tummy tuck.

Get Some Belts

Now is the time to accentuate with fashionable belts. These can be worn with dresses, skirts, jeans and dress pants. A belt gives a finished look to every outfit and it can be a very colorful accessory. Fashion experts suggest a skinnier belt for wearing at the waistline and to highlight a very tiny waist or when someone has an overall petite frame. Larger belts are better when wrapped around dresses, tops or jackets. Women with narrow hips should use larger belts, worn just above their hips, to help define their shape easier.

Get Fitted Clothing

Blouses, jackets and dresses are all available is styles with fitted waists and fuller material elsewhere. Empire waist dresses and tops that are fitted just below the bust line are great when hiding a tummy, but unnecessary after a tummy tuck. Instead look for clothing fitted right at the waist. The shape of these pieces help to accentuate the bust and hips too, so they are great for creating an hourglass figure.

Choose a Wrap

Wrap dresses are perfect for women with small waists, regardless of the rest of their body shape. A wrap dress will highlight a tiny waist and look equally flattering on curvy women, thin shapes and women who are petite or tall. There are casual and formal wrap styles in a variety of colors and patterns.

Anyone that has struggled with a wide waist may think it is easy to look great in any clothing. Yet, even with a smaller waistline it can be difficult to get the right shape in every outfit. When someone is willing to undergo a tummy tuck, it is because they want to look their best. With the right clothing it is easier to make the most out of an exciting new silhouette.
