Tackling the Crop Top Without Washboard Abs


Tiny crop tops have been in style for many seasons now, but for those who don’t have perfectly flat abs, this has been a nuisance and a challenge. It seems that these cropped shirts only look flattering on those with tiny waistlines, but this doesn’t always have to be the case. When worn with the right bottoms, crop tops can and should be rocked by anybody who feels comfortable to wear them. These tips can help even the most body-conscious woman feel comfortable wearing these tiny tops.
