Thanks so much for writing! We’re happy to help you find a dress to hide your belly, a sensitive area for many. The good news? It’s extremely easy to find a flattering Mother of the Bride dress in plus size that hides the belly area with just a few simple suggestions.
Before you begin, here’s a tip: get a solid piece of shapewear. One of the best things you can do for your confidence level in any dress you wear is to start with a solid foundation. A nice pair of shapewear like this will provide a nice smooth foundation to wear underneath the dress and will make you feel pulled together and confident.
A shaping outfit like this or this will slim your belly section, as it is designed to tighten that specific region.
Shapewear is the best thing to wear under mother of the bride dresses that hide tummy or belly fat because it will also eliminate additional pulling on the fabric in specific areas, will eliminate any undergarments from showing, and will create a smoothing effect.
Next, choose a dress that flatters the midsection area. Here are a few suggestions for plus-size mother of the bride dresses that hide belly fat.
