Q: Months after giving birth, I still have a tummy. How do I disguise it?
A: Mazel tov on your baby! And congratulations, too, on not feeling compelled to get your figure back in three weeks (like some body-obsessed celebs). But if you hide beneath schmattes, you'll only invite those annoying "Pregnant again?" comments. Go out and get some decent shapewear: It will smooth and support your belly, making you look a size smaller. You can also shift the focus away from your stomach by dressing to highlight other areas (maybe a fuller bust—one of the rewards of breastfeeding).

I'd never guess that this faux-pearl-trimmed jersey top (Bordeaux, $165) has a tummy-flattening lining.

A Teez-Her ($28) looks like a tank, acts like shapewear.
