It is very important to wear clothes that fit you perfectly, especially if you wish to hide your stomach. Small or tight clothes will highlight the areas with excess muscles whereas loose or baggy clothes make you look wider and heavier than you actually are. Thus, avoid wearing clothes that are either too tight or too loose. Always opt for the perfect fit.

2. Wear Belts.

Belts can turn out to be a great addition to your wardrobe, especially if you want to create a skinny waistline. A belt helps to clinch the waist and add shape to your body.

3. Prefer Clothes With Vertical Patterns.

Thin and vertical stripes help in creating a visual illusion to make you look slimmer and taller. They force the eyes to scan from up to down rather than sideways.

4. Choose Appropriate Colors.

5. Wear Heels.
