Despite the term, there is not much to love about love handles. Both men and women face the common problem of bulging around the middle. And let’s face it, most people in different cultures value men and women who are lean and fit. We prefer that both sexes have lean sides and flat stomachs. However, the reality is that many of us don’t reach this ideal.
With diet and exercise most we can obtain washboard abs with time. While that is a lofty goal to achieve, we want instant gratification – or at the very least, the ability to fit into a new form fitting dress or men’s shirt. So here’s the secret to getting rid of love handles instantly: it’s all in the way you dress.

Admit it, we see fashion disasters walking down the street everyday as people who wear too tight jeans tend to create a muffin top effect of making the fat bulges rise. If people would just learn to dress themselves better, they would realize they have a body they can be proud of.

So how does one dress to flatter their figure when they are a fashion illiterate? The most important thing in your wardrobe is proper underwear. That is right; the humble underwear in which no one can see is the foundation piece of your wardrobe.
