In case you’re not certain what it is, FUPA means Fat Upper Pelvic (or Pubic) Area. It is slang for fat in the lower abdomen area or just a pronounced lower belly.
Five Clever Ways To Hide Your FUPA
One clever way to hide a FUPA is to put on anything peplum. The peplum hemline flatters your figure by accentuating the waist and making the hips look wider with pleated fabric. No matter the material, pleated hemlines succeed in completely covering your lower belly fat. You can get the peplum style in blouses, pants, skirts and even bikini bottoms!
2. Play with patterns
Belly bumps and folds are obvious when you put on plain-coloured clothes. So, this summer, opt for patterned items instead. When used properly, patterns distract the eyes with lines, curves and colours. If you go for clothes with very busy designs, especially around the waistline, you won’t even remember you have a FUPA.
3. Use looser fabrics as layers
Use a long sweater or jacket to create long, lean lines, pulling the eye away from your belly and lengthening your appearance. Try a long duster or a kimono with a waterfall hemline for a more carefree look. Pair it with a form-fitting bottom, such as shorts, leggings or skinny jeans for a sweet summery look with your FUPA nowhere in sight.
4. Statement tops
Tops that show off a little skin take the attention off your FUPA and up to your neck, shoulders and chest. They also make up for being tight around the arms by being loose around the waist and the hips. So say goodbye to the shapewear because, with statement tops, your FUPA can breathe freely!
5. Accentuate your waist
Another brilliant way to take attention away from your belly fat is to accentuate your waist. You can achieve this with high-waisted pieces. You could even test fate by pairing it with a crop top. However, by far, the best way to accentuate your waist is to throw a stylish belt into the mix.
Above all, the most clever tip hide, and eventually slay, with a FUPA is to just rock it! Confidence is your most fabulous accessory. Enjoy your weekend!
