Prints can help create distractions if you are trying to hide your tummy and the Somerset Maxi Dress does it really well. The fun colorful prints bring a summer vibe to the dress.

This dress comes in so many different colors and sizes that I am sure you will find a favorite.

The Ciebon Floral print dress has half puff sleeves that will cover your arms if thats a problem area. The maxi dress length will elongate your legs and the fit and flare style will look flattering and will also hide your belly pooch.

A tunic dress is more free flowing than a body con dress. And it’s breathable and the perfect dress you can wear in the heat. It also smartly hides your tummy area without looking like you are wearing oversized dress.
