Your first thought might be that extra volume adds bulk, but that's not the case, says Thomson, who calls these shirts her "go-to tummy cinchers." The key is to avoid ruffles that are too flared, which can overemphasize your butt instead of accentuating the curves in that area. Wear it without or without sleeves, depending on the season and your feelings about your arms. "Either way, when the cinching happens in that perfect spot just below the waistline, it can really flatter your silhouette," says Thomson.
