Over the last five years I've lost 40kgs and am left with a saggy tummy, apron included. During my last pregnancy I was 10-15kg heavier than I am now, but my stomach was plumper and I feel like my bump was lovely and round from about 17weeks. I'm 12weeks now and feel like I've got a "bump" already, but my stomach looks so strange! I have slight sagging skin above my belly button (think B shape), firm roundness below my belly button and then saggy/deflated apron below that. Any ideas how I can dress to round out my tummy? I have a belly band from last pregnancy but it's a pretty stretched out so isn't giving much shape.

This sounds like my tummy just about always, i prefer tops that are more 'floaty' from the bust down, they seem to hide the weird shape best. Good for pregnancy as well since they usually allow for bump growth as well
