Peplums, The Sartorial Cure For Muffin Top
I’ve been carrying my pouch (aka muffin top) for most of my adult life. It has generated many “are you expecting questions” and is the reason why I recently started a collection of girdles and other stretchy support under things to help keep the pudge at bay. This peplum top seems to be the kryptonite to my pudge though and if I had any idea that the little flare of extra fabric would act as a camouflage for my incurable muffin top, I would have racked up a lot more of these a year ago.
What I Am Wearing!
The black leatherette peplum top was another amazing find at Macys. I am not affiliated with them, by the way (not for this post anyways) I just really love shopping there. I applied one of my holiday gift cards to this $29 purchase so it was actually free. I wore this to Blogher’s and Have to Have’s theater night in Manhattan last night where I saw The Heiress. I was planning to wear skinny jeans with the top but decided to go with a pencil skirt instead because it looked more formal. In lieu of the boots pictured here, I wore the outfit with ankle boots and tights. I anticipated that I would be walking a lot last night and these boots were not practical for that.
I am open to other suggestions on how I can hide my muffin top. Stretchy underthings are no fun!
