Crop Tops are super in for the spring and summer, and to be honest I didn’t think I’d be able to “participate” because… let’s just say my tummy is one of my biggest (harhar) insecurities.
So, I’ve developed some “tips” on how you can rock a crop top if you're insecure about doing so without having the “ideal body” they are typically manufactured for:
- Buy a loose-fitting, regular sized top and pin it to crop-top length and wear it out for a day to see if you're comfortable with the shorter length. If you are, then you can go ahead and chop off the bottom portion and create a hem and purchase crop tops in your size from then on. If you aren't totally comfortable, you can just unpin the top and wear it as normal. That's what I did with this particular top.
- Wear crop tops with high-waisted shorts, pants, jeans or skirts. The high waist will provide you with "problem-area" control, so you feel more secure.
- If high-waists are not your thing, then you can go ahead and pair your crop top with a cami underneath. A cami will smooth you out and provide you with more coverage.
- If you feel that crop tops shorten and widen your silhouette, wear them with a pair of casual heels or comfortable wedges to elongate your legs.
