When I was younger, I had a stomach of steel. When I say that, I don’t mean I had a six-pack! I mean that (once upon a time) I could get away with eating pretty much anything without worrying about bloating – or an upset stomach. But since entering into my 20s, I’ve struggled with my stomach, bloating, and discomfort.
My stomach has been quite a journey the last few years. From trying new diets, eliminating certain foods, and trying out a bunch of probiotics (one which I am still taking and really like). While all those things help on and off, it seems like there is no one cure for bloating – and that means that over the last few years I’ve pretty much mastered how to dress to camoflage a food baby.
So… What is a “Food Baby” exactly?
As per google:
a protruding stomach caused by eating a large quantity of food and supposedly resembling that of a woman in the early stages of pregnancy.
“a very small bump was visible in the tight frock, although it could easily have been mistaken for a food baby”
So What are the BEST styles to Camoflage a Food Baby?
Shirts that float away from your body will always disguise a food baby. These sorts of baby-doll shirts are totally stylish while also being very comfortable and practical for those who struggle with a tempermental stomach.
Peplum styles tend to be one of my favourites when it comes to flattering silhouettes. When they fit correctly, peplums should hit at your natural waist and then flare out. This is both flattering and camoflages a bloated belly.
One style I’ve really been drawn to over the last few months are shirts with a slightly more structured and boxy fit.
