Best Summer Dresses to Hide Belly Fat

Updated: Aug 22

Summer's here - yay!

And so are the barbecues, beach parties and all day brunches - still yay?

If you're like me, then you either get bloated really easily or are battling with a very visible fupa/pouch.


You may be wondering how you can stay looking cute yet comfortable all summer long while concealing belly fat you're not comfortable showing to the world.

Well, I'm here to tell you it's very possible (and affordable)!

As a member of the FUPA (Fat Upper P***y Area) community, some days, you just don't want to be bothered with tight undergarments or sucking in. This list of summer dresses is here to offer great ways to hide belly fat (and wider hips if you wish) while remaining stylish.

There is nothing wrong with letting it all hang if that's your thing.

First on the list is this beautiful white shirred mixed broderie tiered maxi dress from ASOS.

Coming in at under $100 USD and with great reviews, it's definitely a top contender!

If you're all about bold colours but still wish to hide that belly fat, why not give the illusion of a smaller waist?

This fuchsia dress from MOT the label is a perfect option for the fashionista. Everyone would be drooling over your dress while you alone know your personal secret - shh!

Here are some more bold colour options:

This ASOS pleated twist back cap sleeve maxi dress in mustard has you showing just a little cleavage while staying comfortable.

For a bold cocktail hour/date night option, this Shein flounce sleeve drawstring front ruched side dress in lime green would work really well.

The ruching over the stomach area is very flattering!

Another more formal option is this Double Breasted Velvet Blazer Dress from Nastygal.

Blazer dresses are great because the cut already gives the illusion of a smaller waist without a belt and this velvet option is looser around the belly area, thus hiding unwanted belly fat.

For lounging around your best friend's apartment, why not opt for this Gingham tie strap mini smock dress which is giving me major baby doll vibes!

Where are my plus size queens? This Plisse Tiered Midi Dress will have you looking like a dream while you casually enjoy your 4th slice of pecan pie :)

I know some of you are going to be skeptical about this next option on the list but believe me, sizing up in this style of the dress can have you feeling grown, sexy and not self conscious about your belly fat!

It's the Premium Fabric Scoop Neck Bias Dress by Nastygal.

Sleeve lovers, the next 2 dresses are for you.

With this 1st option, you have dramatic sleeves in contrast with a mini smock dress

The colour is still playful for summer weather and um, a serving of legs please?!

For the second dramatic sleeve moment, ASOS gets us with this tiered voile maxi dress with ruched strap dress in Mustard. I love how with this version we get a maxi dress with long sleeves and the cut outs once more give the illusion of a smaller waist.

On my previous Shein Haul and Review, I wore this brown ruffle hem puff sleeved dress and it fits perfectly onto this list! I find myself wearing it to go grocery shopping or walking in the park.

If you are smaller on top or smaller chested, you could definitely get away with this sexy parthea puff sleeve high split ditsy floral print dress.

It's amazing how this dress could actually be concealing belly fat underneath, isn't it?

Clubbing or a house party can turn into beer chugging and not everyone wants their bloated gut on full display on the gram.

Here's a solution: the Sxy Off The Shoulder Layered Sleeve Bodycon Dress from Shein.

The cut brings attention to the decollage and this is always a great thing.

If you're thinking luxury boat party vibes (with bottomless champagne), then this L*Space Barcelona dress in cream is for you.

Again, another great slit while concealing the belly and it's 100% viscose - great for summer weather!

I really hope I am showing you how not to limit your options to frumpy maxi dresses when you're looking to hide your belly.

Take this Revolve clothing Katie May Chasing Dawn Gown in Pink Daisy - it looks so fabulous and thanks to the rouching and asymmetry, would make a great bulge- hiding dress!

What is 1 thing I have been re-emphasizing throughout this entire post? Waist accentuation! If you are hiding a bulge, bring attention to an accentuated waist.

This Bronx and Banco Megan Mini Dress in Blanc does just that while keeping you looking dainty.

Going to back maxi dresses, this Astrid dress in multi would be great for not only a summer festival but also a day party or brunch.

Whether you're eating 2 burgers or one would know!

Sweetheart necklines are flattering on all bust sizes!

A trip to a vineyard or a museum outing would be complete in this ASTR the Label Irma Dress in Yellow Green Floral. It's giving grown and subtle classy.

There are bound to be birthday parties as well as fancy dinners (hello date night?) and sometimes you want to indulge in the fries and dessert because salads are not meant to be eaten everyday, right?

This ELLIATT Reception Dress in Fuchsia is a show stopper that has a draped ruffle detail in the right spot.

I had to save the best for last because ladies and gentlemen (if there are any reading this), this gala/fundraiser/museum opening night dress is the jaw dropper that would even permit you to hide a baby bump under there.

This Sabina Musayev Ray Dress in Gold is the perfect way to round up this list of great dresses to hide a belly or bulge and/or wide hips.

If you have bigger breasts, try using some of this tried and tested boob tape.

I hope you've found this list useful!
