It’s All About That Drape

There are so many reasons why a forgiving top may be of interest to you right now. It’s a simple concept most of us can identify with-your tummy is no longer flat and or you just aren’t down with clingy tops. As I began writing this post I tried to itemize the reasons why but I just sounded shallow and judgmental. Which is ridiculous because this is exactly how I dress! Three kids later, there is no hiding my tummy that looks vaguely 1st trimester-ish. Oh wait, there is! As the title says, it is all about that drape! These tops are constructed using twists, folds, pleats and rolls in all the right places. Plus when the top tapers in a bit at the hem you’ll get the right amount of fabric to hide what you want hidden with no tent like shape. (The irony is not lost on me that my page title riffs on Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass which celebrates a womanly body and yet here I am subverting her message by giving examples on how to hide that not so flat tummy. Don’t hate.)
