If you’ve skipped more planks than you’ve suffered through, you’re not alone. Our advice? If you can’t tone it, hide it. Here’s how!
Wear on its own as a dress (with flats) or with skinny white jeans for a chic weekend look.
Diane von Furstenberg fleurette printed dress, $254; bloomingdales.com
The full-cut tankini top provides the extra room you need.
Ella Moss Ebony Soft Cup Bandini Tankini Top, $55; bloomingdales.com
An Empire waistline (it hits at your rib cage, your smallest point) with a full skirt is the perfect midsection-hiding shape.
Rae Francis beau dress, $488; shopbop.com
The silhouette is a favorite when it comes to hiding a tummy, but the print here also provides an added hit of hide-and-seek.
NIC+ZOE Road to Riches knit tunic top, $174; nordstrom.com
How to slenderize your middle? Buy yourself a pair of shorts with built-in slimming technology, like these.
Arya short, $68; nydj.com
The faux-wrap styling and soft gathers through the middle are comfortable and flattering. Win-win!
KAMALIKULTURE women's cap sleeve side draped dress, $55; amazon.com
We love the classic ease of a basic button-down, and thanks to the added peplum, this one covers belly bulge.

I agree with both Monica and Susan. Article a little disappointing. Would have liked to see a more realistic representation.
Cute dresses! It would be awsome that the models weren't young,thin girls which only make us elders feel unadequate. I ain't that young or slender by any means, even if I'm still fitting.
This would be infinitely more helpful if the models hired for this article actually had belly fat that they were trying to hide. Ridiculous.
