It’s a special occasion and not being able to enjoy yourself due to feeling uncomfortable is not the way to go.
So what can you do when you want to hide a little bit of belly?
We get dresses that flatter our curves while making us feel confident.
A little bit of belly never hurts anyone, but if finding a dress that brings a boost of confidence while being comfortable to hide the belly is what you need then look no further.
So let’s call this blog a little secret between you and me and jump right into it.
Knowing your body type
Belly bulge is completely normal and there’s nothing wrong with it.
Knowing your body type allows you to style yourself in a way that will make you feel confident as well as hide that belly.
You might be feeling a little self-conscious about it and now you’re panicked to find a dress for a wedding.
Before we dive into the curated list of dresses that might work for you I need to make it extremely clear that you should feel confident and comfortable in your skin at all times.
You need the dress to fit you, you don’t need to fit the dress.
Tips for finding the right dress
Before showing the stunning list of dresses that I have lined up for you to look at, here’s a list of tips to keep in mind when picking your dress.
These are just some styling tips that you can use whenever you go shopping or if you’re getting ready to go somewhere.
These are things that you can keep with you and to help guide you to build your wardrobe even further.
- Try dresses with a high waist which allows you to hide the belly but still shows off your figure.
- A-line dresses are your best friend.
- Stick to one color.
- Patterns are your best friend.
- Darker colors are better to hide the belly.
- Wrap dresses with ruffles will cover the belly while staying stylish.
- Avoid dresses that cling to your body.
- Keep to structured fabrics or a flowing one that moves with your body instead of clinging to it.
- Make use of dresses that have additions such as puffy sleeves or layers to ensure that the focus is off of your belly and rather on an intricate design or bold touch.
Now that we have the basics covered we can officially look into the dresses you need to keep in mind when picking a dress for a wedding.
Play around with different ideas until you find one that works for you.

4. Flowing A-line gown
This stunning maroon dress is just loose enough to hide the belly but still shows off the figure in a modest way.
The dark fabric ensures that things aren’t too visible and because the gown is a light material it offers a nice flow that works with the body.

This idea shows you how to accessorize as well.
Pairing the floral print wrap dress with bright white accessories is a simple yet stunning look.
With the puffy sleeves and v-neck, it creates the perfect look to hide the belly.

16. Lilac flowy off-the-shoulder dress
This lilac wrap dress is gorgeous and the light material makes it perfect for summer.
We can all appreciate the style of this off-the-shoulder dress mainly because the wrap creates a high sitting belt that allows your curves to be shown stunningly without being too tight.

This might be a unique idea that not everyone will like but the balance of lace and the normal fabric of the dress creates a beautiful flowy look.
It’s perfect for someone looking for comfort and effortless style.

The two-piece set allows layers to hide the belly bulge.
