If Your Tummy Is Big… And You Too

Everyone looks swollen, from face to foot… and you want to see you pregnant, not chubby! Your goal is to highlight the long, not the wide.

Black Magic
Combine a robe with black pants. The dark silhouettes from head to toe stylize your torso, which is where the bulky parts of your body are concentrated. Attract the look directly to the neckline with jewelry or embroidery details. For the feet, flat shoes, wedges or low heels sharpened to give length to your legs. A sophisticated portfolio, a thick slave, and a watch complete this sophisticated and sleek set.

If Your Tummy Is Big… And You Too

Everyone looks swollen, from face to foot … and you want to see you pregnant, not chubby! Your goal is to highlight the long, not the wide.

Use draperies
Wear a neutral, long-sleeved jacket (khaki, tan, gray or black) as described in pregnancy attire over a straight dark shirt or a tank top. Wear dark jeans to lengthen your legs and make them slimmer with either a bell or straight finish, and high-heeled or thin-tipped boots. Make sure that the seam of your pants comes at least an inch or two off the floor, otherwise your legs would look shorter and wider. Uses large or long earrings to attract the look. A long silky handkerchief or long necklaces. Do not forget a large bag with a long handle to hang from the shoulder. These accessories will help to enhance the length of your line.

If Your Tummy Is Low

If your highest volume appears below the navel, so that it seems that the time of delivery is approaching, you are interested in giving a new balance to your proportions, making the eyes move to other parts of your body.

Go legs!
Wear a straight knee length skirt so your legs look longer under that low elastic jean belly or any other fabric, and combine them with comfortable wedge shoes. Look for an eye-catching V-neck t-shirt, a pair of pendant earrings or a thick collar to help divert the gut’s looks. Choose jackets and blouses that are long so that they can cover the tummy. A bag completes the line.

The empire neckline strikes back
A V-neckline and empire-style waistline defines your figure well, makes the looks move up and accentuate your bust. If you coordinate it with flirtatious and pendant lenses will keep the point of interest on the top of your body. Put a short cardigan on top to help balance your proportions. And as a low belly can make your legs look shorter, style your own in dark knit pants or elastic jean and match them with flat shoes that have some point.

If Your Tummy Is High

The chest and navel seem to have joined together and you look like a ball on legs. Your goal is to work your silhouette in specific places to make it appear slimmer.

Color party
To separate the baby’s bust, consider using a dress with a clear horizontal separation, leave one piece of color in the bust and another below it, and combine it with comfortable cloth shoes, a necklace and slaves, and A bag of colors.

Another option is a simple cross dress of knitwear that will make you feel elegant instantly, while giving definition to your torso. You can add a thin belt to a wider dress, above your tummy, to help divide those two areas of your body that have gained so much volume.

High Definition
Look for a silky blouse or fine, stretchy knit with a pronounced rump below the bust line. This will help distinguish your chest from the tummy. To make your legs look thinner compared to your voluptuous breasts and belly, wear rather wide cloth pants. Attract the looks to your face through a design necklace and eye-catching lenses. A wallet and sneakers with animal foot prints complete the effect.

If You Are Small

If you only see a belly and you do not seem to have gained weight anywhere else in your body, and you also have problems finding clothing that goes away, this is your goal: display your belly with pride and add dimension to your figure. Underlines

curves
A t-shirt that closes at the sides with laces or puckering, to add side curves to your body. Other options to increase the curves: shirts with something of adornment like a steering wheel, a tie or sleeves turns. Look for garments that have any detail that adds shape to your body.

Enhance the lower half of your body with leggings or flared pants, or a jean with side pockets. An earring and a personality necklace will add more depth and definition to this set, while a thick metal slave and flat sneakers will give you an extra feminine shine!

If you only see a belly and you do not seem to have gained weight anywhere else in your body, and you also have problems finding clothing that goes away, this is your goal: display your belly with pride and add dimension to your figure.

Stripes
You are one of the few gavels that can use horizontal stripes at will, even when you are pregnant. This pattern allows you to emphasize your tummy and your curves so that your figure does not look so minimal. Look for stretchy fabrics that stick to your body and match it with tight jeans or leggings. Avoid very steamy or wide pants, in which you would tend to disappear. Look for flat shoes with a little tip, large lenses and a modern bag for a fabulous and cool look inspired by Audrey Hepburn.
