This one is my personal favorite. The black color hides our “lovely lady lumps” really well. Ruching is always a helpful friend to slim the tummy.

Ruffles and Lace

This one works for all shapes and has a great built in lace coverup for the “thigh-consciences”!

So cute!

Patterns and Gathers


Use consistent patterns, not stripes, to slim and contour your shape. Do not mix and match top and bottom colors or it will break up your figure. I love how the gathers bring shape up top.
