In my opinion, this Arabic saying stands for the fact that we women can enjoy our femininity, our sensuality – at any age and even when our bodies change.
Is your stomach well trained and you proud of your athletic middle?
Do you notice with a hint of frustration that your figure is changing and your proportions are changing?
Are you experiencing how a child grows up in you and with it your stomach and hips grow too. Does this figure change concern you or can you just enjoy it?
All these changes have their time and are part of our lives. We can be grateful that our bodies can go along with all of this and adapt to our circumstances.
You can become friends with your body, your stomach….
If you belong to the O-figure type or apple type – be it for a long time or only temporarily – you can use the following tips well to let your stomach take a back seat:
Here are my top 5 Tips
Tip 1: Use advantageous cuts
V-necklines stretch your silhouette, waterfall necklines add beautiful feminine note to the upper body area. Cuts with empire seams are just made for you: Empire dresses with their seam between the stomach and chest emphasize your narrowest point and fall loosely from there. In this way, your stomach is loosely and inconspicuously played around.
Tip 2: Focus on your beautiful décolleté and towards your face
Strong colours, a beautiful neckline or a fancy necklace matching your style are great for directing the eyes of your counterpart in the direction of your cleavage. A great pair of earrings or an interesting make-up also draws attention to your face.
Tip 3: Play with colours
Light colours attract the eye and make an area appear larger and bigger. So use darker and subtle colours in the stomach area to hide your stomach and strong colours in other areas that you want to emphasize.
Tip 4: Show your legs
Often with an O-figure you have beautifully slim legs. Figure-hugging skirts and pants are perfect for bringing them to the fore. Striking tights or leggings are also an interesting option to emphasize your legs.
Tip 5: Let the patterns work for you
If you are a fan of patterns, use them for your own benefit. Subtle patterns make the stomach area appear smaller, use eye-catching patterns exactly where you want others to look at, be it your décolleté, your legs or arms or a statement piece such as an amazing clutch with a giraffe pattern.
If you don’t have a pronounced O-figure type with a round center, but you find your arched stomach annoying, you can of course use these general styling tips for yourself.
