Q. How do I prevent muffin top?

It's all about artful dressing—and taking advantage of figure-flattering details. Wide waistbands, loose tops, and smoothing fabrics are all your friends. Check out these star players:

Clockwise from left:

Attention, $20; Hide a pooch with a peplum top.

Ivanka Trump, $79; A flowy tunic skims over flabby bits; a subtle elastic waist conceals and flatters.

Pants on model, Rafaella, $58; A wider waistband and stretch fabric hold you in.

Yummie by Heather Thomson, $34; This tank's fabric sucks in your middle, but it's loose on the bottom so it doesn't cling to bulges or ride up.
