Hi-- which styles of Denim Jeans and Pants do you find fits better when you have a big tummy? Back in the day, I had abs, but most of the weight I gained seemed to have gone to my stomach (visceral?) fat, and I even have somewhat of a muffin top. Overall, I would call myself an apple shape, but I don't necessarily have a "flat" bottom though.
Low-waist jeans do make it better to where my stomach hangs over it, but then how do you conceal it best without wearing too baggy of a shirt? Black tops seem to slim up my body more. I usually like boot-cuts or skinny jeans, I also try my old fave: flares, but they usually get too wide.
The other problem seems to be that when the jean size is big enough for my tummy and muffin top, the gap in the back makes it where I have to constantly check my back. A belt does not always fix this problem, so I am guessing I just need a longer belt?
Basically, Short sizes would be better too, because the bigger I have to go up in sizes for the excess fat, the baggier the legs of the pants get.
Does anyone have any particular brand or style that has worked for you?
