Finding it very hard to find a gown or long dress that looks nice where I don't look pregnant. I have a big tummy but I manage to hide it with specific skirts and shirts or even a short swing dress style but I can't figure out how to do that with a long dress or gown which is what I need. Most gowns have waists which look so bad on me.

I've used many different binders over the years and this is my best one.

How comfortable is it? I'm not OP but have had the same problem. I can't sit and eat or dance in anything I've tried on without it being painful, digging in, etc.

Some gowns have drapes over the stomach/ the front.

Sometimes ruching/gathers on the side helps.

Sometimes a peplum can cover up a tummy.
Couldn't find a tznius example but like this -

Sometimes a straight or plain style with detailing on top draws the eye toward your face and away from your stomach.

Lately I've seen some dress-style gowns (like a button down) where ironically, the existence of the waist/belt actually helps slim down the overall look.
