Stunning dresses that will flatter your tummy Boden

Whatever your body type, finding clothes that are both comfortable and flattering can often feel challenging, particularly with summer here. When common hangups such as not having a toned tummy come into play, shopping for an outfit that makes you feel good can become even more of a struggle.

If you're feeling a little insecure about your waistline in particular, there are plenty of different dress styles to try to help get your confidence back.

By employing just a few simple tricks you can look chic and more importantly, give your self-esteem a boost. To help you find your perfect style, we’ve rounded up a range of dress types, from wrap dresses to belted beauties, that are super flattering for all shapes. Take a look below.

1. Wrap dress

Diane Von Furstenburg has been successfully designing wrap dresses for decades because she realised how flattering the cut is for all body shapes. A true wardrobe wonder, a well-cut wrap dress will fit and flatter up top and then flutter over your middle, enhancing your bust and camouflaging the rest.

2. Tie-front waist

Magic away your middle with a flattering cinched-in, tie-front waist. The slim-waist silhouette will pull you in at all the right places while the knot detail adds extra coverage.

3. Belted dress

This dress style might seem counterintuitive but it's one of the best ways to give a waistline more definition. Opt for a dress with a belt or tie in a matching colour because it’ll help to create a tummy-slimming, hourglass curve.

4. Block colour dress

Did you know that wearing one colour head to toe is the fastest shortcut to looking taller and trimmer? A block colour maxi dress is a chic way to detract from any areas that make you feel insecure.

5. Patterned dress

An eye-popping all over print lets the eyes skim over any areas you’d rather not highlight and give camouflage where it counts.

6. Pencil dress

A form-fitting pencil dress can work wonders on your middle - the trick is to choose a high-waist style in a structured fabric. A thicker fabric will smooth your waist while the high rise helps create the illusion of a slimmer middle.
