It’s one of the clothes that most curvy women avoid.
But one woman, who describes herself as having a “chubby stomach”, has revealed her four style tips that can help anyone wear a crop top and feel confident doing it.
Chrissy B shared her advice on her YouTube page and explained that she doesn’t think anyone should be ruled out from wearing one because of their size.
“I’m here to tell you that crop tops aren’t just for women who have super flat stomachs and small waists, they’re also for thick girls, chubby girls, tall girls,” he said. she smiled.
Her first piece of advice is to “find the crop top that suits you”.
In the video, Chrissy wore a gray crop top from Pretty Little Thing, which is a longer style and has drawstrings on either side, meaning she can adjust the amount of skin she shows.
“Find the crop top you’re comfortable with,” she advised.
“It could be shorter, it could be longer, it doesn’t matter.
“Just find what you’re comfortable with.”
Chrissy’s next suggestion is to pair a crop top with a pair of high waisted bottoms.
“High-waisted pants are a thick girl’s dream,” she said.
“They’re your friends. It’ll kind of hide or disguise or smooth out the bits of your stomach that you don’t want, as well as the love handles.”
The style of the pants also helps conceal any “back fat” that you may feel embarrassed about.
“The third tip would be to add an oversized flannel jacket or shirt to your outfit if it makes you feel more comfortable,” Chrissy continued.

She then took the oversized flannel shirt and tied it around her waist.
“It kinda makes me feel safe sometimes, especially when I go out and don’t want to have to worry about pulling my crop top down or whatever,” she said.
“It’s also a great trick to conceal love handles or any spills.”
Or, if you don’t want to tie the shirt around your waist, try wearing it and teaming the outfit with a pair of sneakers for a grunge look.
And Chrissy’s final tip is to go up a size when buying a crop top.
“I never really buy a crop top in my actual size,” she said.
“I like to go up in size just to have some room to play.
“Sometimes I like my crop tops to be a little oversized, just so I can play with it if I want to lower it a little in the back or in the front.”
