Imagine putting on what you think is a killer outfit only to look in the mirror and realize you instead feel like a blob. If you’ve fallen victim to the undefined waistline, you’re not alone. Here are a few tricks to easily create a waistline that both flatters and accentuates your curves – and not the other way around.

Tuck and Go
Tucking in your shirt is the fastest and easiest way to create a waistline. If you’re concerned about a tucked-in top looking bulgy or bulky, opt for wearing a bodysuit, which can create a super-sleek look.

Higher and Higher
We love high-waisted pants because they automatically create a more slender-looking silhouette. Tucking a shirt into these pants can also help give that illusion of a narrow waist. Even if you don’t love high-waisted pants, try a pair that hits your waistline just a half-inch higher than your usual style. You won’t regret it!

There are two types of people in this world: those who love peplums and those who despise them. If you’re the type that fancies them, you know they’re best for days you’re feeling a bit frumpy. When scouting for the perfect peplum top, make sure it’s structured enough to fit your body and doesn’t just hang on you.

Get the Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits and rompers come with a very helpful tool for creating a waistline: a drawstring. They can be dressed up or down, and you can always add layers if you need to. We promise: The only time you’ll second-guess wearing one is when you have to go to the bathroom.
If you’re still struggling with invisible waistline syndrome, get thee to a tailor! The beauty of tailored garments is that they’re going to fit your body in a way that flatters it. You can say goodbye to feeling boxy or shapeless for good!
