Hide your muf­fin top – with a waist warmer

Daily Mail - - Femail Magazine -

DO YOU have a favourite blouse that won’t quite tuck into your sen­si­ble work trousers? Or a much-loved pair of jeans that now leave an un­sightly muf­fin top on show?

It’s a peren­nial prob­lem — that lit­tle gap over your midriff that threat­ens to ap­pear when­ever you sit down or bend for­ward. It might be wise to in­vest in a waist warmer, the lat­est clever in­ven­tion to dis­guise and flat­ter your middle.

Also known as a hara­maki, lit­er­ally ‘belly wrap’ in Ja­panese, it’s a cloth tube that fits around your middle. You can tuck it in for in­vis­i­ble sup­port or leave it out­side your trousers so the pretty band of colour peeks out. And it doesn’t just stop your tummy show­ing — it will keep you warm, too. Made in the UK, it comes in five colours and four sizes (£32.50 from nukunuku.co.uk).

An­other so­lu­tion is the range of clever de­signs from Cami Cou­ture, a Cheshire-based brand.

Their long­line cami is a par­tic­u­lar win­ner, with a cropped in­ner layer to hug the bust and longer top layer to skim past the waist and cover lumps and bumps (£40, Cam­i­con­fi­den­tial.com).
