If there is one thing, I know for sure, it’s dressing my body. If you have a visible belly line (VBL) like I do you are probably aware that no matter how good the shapewear is- our stomachs will not magically disappear. There is no reason to feel as if we should hide it. If you want to flaunt it, do it! If you feel like camouflaging it, do it! All that matters is you do what makes YOU feel good.

Having a VBL may require a little more effort in some of the styles we want to wear, but it’s worth it. The best tip I can give you is to learn yourself and your body. Regardless of your body type, learn what makes you feel confident, comfortable, and sexy. Dress for your individual body and authentic style.

Ten Tips For Dressing VBL’s

-Tailoring

-Shapewear

-Posture (good posture will take you further than you may think)

-Proper fitting bra (helps define the waist)

-Quality fabric

-Pleating (I love a good pleat in the tummy area)

-High waisted fitted pants (holds those love handles in perfectly)

-Boxy/loose crop tops (think symmetry)

-Know your angles (this will come in handy for photo op’s)

-Experiment, Experiment, Experiment

Happy Chinese New Year! Leave it to me to find another holiday to celebrate. Oh well, life is about being festive and celebrating it as much as possible, isn’t it?

I have always admired the ambiance of this restaurant where we took these pictures. I thought it was a perfect place to take pictures, it being the Chinese New Year and all.

Quick Tip: If you find yourself in a conundrum with what to do with your hair- braid it! Braids are full proof, they are sleek, sexy, and timeless. I see myself having different styles of braids in the near future.

What about you? Do you like braids, is there a particular style you like or dislike? Let me know in the comments.
