Sharing a TON of tips to help you hide your tummy with help from my friend, Kelli! We mostly used Kelli’s clothes. I brought a few pieces, which I listed below. I am standing on my toes through some of this video because I was worried about lighting and framing as I wasn’t wearing shoes and Kelli is so tall, and was in heels. Technical reasons.

Great tips for someone who has IBS, because of the chronic tummy bloating ! Thank you !
nikki borden (29 days ago)
One more tip.. POSTURE. Standing straight makes holding your tummy in easier. And one more... get fitted for a good bra. A good bra and good posture can take away a lot of belly. I learned that the hard way.
arxsyn (6 days ago)
yes if you're very busty,a good bra that contains the girls properly will visually take pounds away from your frame

GLASSES + EARRINGS?? 😲 Are there any secrets or rules when a person wears glasses and wearing earrings? Are we just SOL or restricted to stud only earrings? Glasses + Earrings + Dark Lipstick = Disaster 😜
arxsyn (6 days ago)
Frieda Schnell It depends on whether that dark side of lipstick is appropriate for your colouring and skin tone, and if possible the style of glasses is not too out there (loud color/print and/or oversized). Longer earrings look fantastic on longer hair lengths. The longer the hair, the longer the earring can be!

I like Kelly in the flared jeans and jackets best.
geneveiveharper (1 month ago)
In order to avoid developing a muffin top, you must engage your abdominal muscles at all times, sitting or standing. To just let your gut hang out all the time doesn't look good, it's bad posture, it results in a bigger belly over time, and it also is bad for your heart. For those people whose mothers didn't teach them this growing up, if you are standing or sitting with company, you should always engage your abs.

The kimono style top does really make her waist look tiny. I will have to try this one... I don't like short sleeves though but it I could wear fuller long sleeves, like the traditional long sleeve on a kimono... I would wear them.
Denise Noles (1 month ago)
That chick had no damn big stomach. Maybe find models who truly have big stomachs.
ReasonLogicJazz (1 month ago)
Can you do a video for thick thighs? I also feel it would be helpful to see comparisons between good and bad looks.
jennifer McDonald (1 month ago)
The lady that is acting as the model has a marvellous body! Why would she be concerned about her figure?
Suzanne Bonham (1 month ago)
This video is great and such smart suggestions! But your model is a knockout so it's hard to dress her "wrong" :)
Gloria J. Pinsker (1 month ago)
I love, love, LOVE peplum tops but they are so hard to find. Wish they'd come back in style big time! It seems there are two types of tummy problems. One is the waist/abdomen area; the other is the hip/belly area. But I think these tips would work for both, except maybe #11.
Needful House (1 month ago)
These were really great looks. When I tried wearing belt higher it made me look pregnant. I prefer the half tacked in shirt, and works best for me. Side note, your model does not have a belly 🤷🏼‍♀️

Did y'all notice Kelly standing on her tippy toes the whole entire video?? Lol

I have just discovered your channel, Erin, and am enjoying spending time with someone who is so cheerful, perky, and insightful, all in one! Thank-you, and keep it up!
Carolyn Halbur (2 months ago)
Well done -- very informative! Do you know about Ruby Ribbon camis and shapewear? Variable compression so you never feel squeezed; gripper edge holds it in place, and fabric that wicks moisture away from your body. I used to wear Spanx but have totally switched. Let me know if you want my Facebook business page. Thanks and keep up the great work!
Michelle Perry (2 months ago)
You need to practice what you teach.if you are uncomfortable with your height but you're telling us to be comfortable with their tummies... so you can stand on your tippy-toes to film YouTube video.... Your total contradiction I'm not criticizing you as a person just not sure that I'm comfortable with your Channel.
J Reyas (2 months ago)
Too much chatter at the beginning, had to move on.
Michelle Perry (2 months ago)
Could NOT get past the "standing on her tiptoes! Sorry
Michelle Perry (2 months ago)
Yes...however it was more uncomfortable then if you would have chosen to let us "short" ladied see that it's ok, to be comfortable being you.
Busbee Style (2 months ago)
I stood on my toes because Kelli is so much taller than I am and she was wearing heels. I took my shoes off out of respect for her home. Thanks!

Brenda Davis (2 months ago)
Yes! I have a larger tummy & extremely busty. Show us how to dress w/these problems; plus i'm short! Thank you for the idea!
arxsyn (6 days ago)
Brenda Davis Sounds to me you have an apple shape. V neck tops always look best on busty ladies. low necklines are very slimming on them. Avoid any visual clutter up top and high necklines. To conceal your tummy and other problem areas I would wear something that skims over that area versus tight and fitted. That's why long line cardigans work great because they give instant coverage. Remember garments come in different weights, so choose thin unlined garments for summer and just do the opposite for cold weather conditions. Belts don't work at all you. Your body shape carries weight on the top half but on the other hand your lower half is slim. They often have really nice slim legs. Show those off! Skinny jeans, leggings, shorter skirts, shorts...
Sandra (2 months ago)
This was an excellent video. Great ideas. Since most of my pants are straight, in the meantime it seems that tunic tops would be better until I can transition to wider legs. Any thoughts on this?
Busbee Style (2 months ago)
Yes... agreed, wear a slightly over-sized top and slim fit pants
chaplainesque (2 months ago)
Kelli, a real flesh-and-blood person, looks wonderful. Such an inspiration! Thanks​ to both of you.

Your friend is so cute
Sandra Mullikiin (2 months ago)
We are very thankful for the model donating her time and all and for your hard work explaining. However, the model did not have a tummy. Many to you since you are so skinny but, to the majority of us out here we would kill for her shape! We are dealing with being short and fat... round, big boobs and big tummies. We need to see a model that represents what the majority of women are facing these days. Yes, we get the jest of it all, which is helpful but, it is still a whole lot more helpful to be able to see it rather than trying to imagine it all. Thank you.

Looking for tummy hiding tips. due to a medical issue I have constant large gut. I can not wear spanx or shape wear due to the discomfort they cause me. I can not tolerate a bra either . Would love good ideas to feel pretty again. Some covered here I have tried, please give more.

Hansilena Roberts (3 months ago)
wrap tops don't work well with a large bust..
Hansilena Roberts (3 months ago)
Busbee Style I agree!
Busbee Style (3 months ago)
I think it depends on the top ,., if it’s more structured, thicker fabric... might work. The thin ones will highlight bust too much in an unflattering way.
amanda marshall (3 months ago)
I loved this video and Kelly was a great model. The problem I have is that I'm so short. Kelly was so tall. So do these same tiips work for short girls also ??
Busbee Style (3 months ago)
It's really important to find what works best for your body. I'd suggest trying these out and seeing if you think they work for you! I'm also planning on doing videos for every body type I can so stay tuned! I just did a video for petites that you can find here: https://youtu.be/JyguWQRWxdE Those tips might also help you! Thanks so much for watching, Amanda! Erin xo
JRose Books (3 months ago)
Um, I appreciate the video, but your model is beautiful and barely has a stomach! I would love a video with a model who really is "bigger" in the middle. Most of these would look horrible on me. And ps. They don't make high waist jeans for petite women with large bellies and small legs.
Liv Hamre (3 months ago)
Love this video! Kelly has a gorgeous body btw, I have her body type as well, she looks amazing.
Busbee Style (3 months ago)
Glad you liked the video! Yes, Kelly is so amazing! Thank you so much for watching, Liv! Erin xo

Wrap dress too long looks grandmotherly at knee or slightly over
arxsyn (6 days ago)
parent-alerte l thought it looked quite good on her in principle because she's not exactly a spring chicken anymore. If she wore that outfit instead of mourning black I'm sure you wouldn't make the Grand mother association. I am also predicting modest dressing is on the rise with the new found popularity of the Maxi skirt. Long hemlines are in for good.

A huge help that looks super stylish is wearing a bunch of long scarves tied together near or just below the bust draping down toward knees over tummy. Tunic was my fav. on this video.

These are great ideas but what tricks do you have for women who have pouch stomachs? The upper tummy is not the problem but rather the bottom of the stomach that wraps around your front like an apron.... some people call them pouches and some people call them aprons. Women of all sizes can have them. Thanks so your suggestions.
Laura Rueda (4 months ago)

Great tips! You’re on your tippy toes the whole time. Lol
Busbee Style (4 months ago)
Yup... because I had to take my shoes off and Kelly is in heels. I was worried about height difference. Should have cropped the video since so many people have commented on the tip toes. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Busbee Style (4 months ago)
Thanks so much, Bibi! I was thrilled Kelly so graciously modeled.
Celita D. P. (4 months ago)
Ummm... so many of these tipsdo not work for me. I think Kelly looked good no matter what, because frankly she might feel insecure about her middle area, but it is NOT a problem like it is for some of us, for me.
Celita D. P. (4 months ago)
Busbee Style thank you, again.
Busbee Style (4 months ago)
Celita D. P. I agree that belts are not for everyone. I think I mentioned Kelly wearing it lower on hips? I can’t recall exact wording. Flowy tunics, blouses, wrap-front tops with tailored pants and jeans will likely be great options. I suggest trying a few combinations, taking pictures in the mirror and then deciding from photos which combos are most flattering for you. Unfortunately there is no one size fits all approach to dressing, but I am hoping there might be nuggets of helpful style info to help!
Celita D. P. (4 months ago)
Busbee Style Thank you... I wonder if some shapes are best NOT using a belt? Are there ways to add style WITHOUT a belt??? Belts seem to accentuate my problem area rather than help. Even empire styles now accentuate... gets discouraging...
Busbee Style (4 months ago)
So sorry to hear that... I included a lot of tips in the hope that some might work for you. Thanks for stopping by!

Would it look odd to do the half tucked top with high waist jeans?

How tall is that lady? By the way she looked nice with whatever she was wearing.
Pictures. SGC (5 months ago)
Kelly is taller than you but if that is what you call a tummy you should go check out what a tummy is. Use someone that has a tummy and then see if you will be able to hide it. If you got somebody that is 1.64 meters tall (5feet 4) and weighs 96 kilo's (212 pnds) with all the weight aroud the stomach and belly area! Than let me see you try your ideas on that person. You would be the first one in the world ro tackle this!!!
