I'm an apple shape and gained weight this year. now my stomach hangs over in what i've heard referred to as an 'apron'. It's the shape of a W and I've never had this before. I always had a big belly but this is new. I hate it. I can never find what to wear any more and nothing compliments by body. I'm so self conscious of it. I am trying to lose weight but I have a family event coming up and don't know what to wear. Any tips?
Help. tips for what to wear when you have an overhang (apron)
for the event - Maxi dresses and high waisted thigh chafing shorts that provide support.
Also any high waisted jean and long layered sweaters for more casual wear.
I totally get this as I have the same. I love wearing a pair of anti-chafe shorts under dresses as not only deals with the thigh chafing but also give me a little bit of support. I get mine from Snag Tights. High-wais ted leggings and jeans are also great for this and I normally pair them with a tunic.
For the event do you like wearing dresses? If so, a skater style, fit and flare or wrap style would look amazing on you. Or how about a pair of palazzo or wide-legged trousers and a blouse/top? 😀
I think layering helps a lot! long cardigans and coats can be very flattering on apple shapes.
thank you. I have been feeling very anxious about it. Thanks @tiffanyt I will get some of those shaping briefs. I have not found any in my size yet (3x) but it seems a good solution.
a wrap dress could be cute, I will see what I can find.
I would recommend following some plus size influencers like @shechonky and @roseybeeme and @whatlauraloves that have similar body types. WLL has a low hanging belly and she helped me feel more confident about mine.
For the event, maybe try a wrap dress or skater style that skims over your belly, as I know confidence doesn't come over night.
You are beautiful remember that!
