beyonce carrying blue ivyIs Beyonce pregnant? Is she not pregnant? I mean ... she was wearing an oversized sweater yesterday. And uh ... she did wear a babydoll top. So uh, yup. Definitely preggo. Wrrrooongggg.

When it comes down to women, weight, and baby-on-board status, it seems your wardrobe gives away your pregnancy news ... or at least people think it does. You know what I mean, right? How many times have you thrown on an oversized sweater and just headed out? Bet you didn't know it at the time, but your outfit choice likely raised a few eyebrows. I don't know why we do it, but it seems the roomier the clothing, the more the baby rumors fly.

So here's the deal. If you want people to stop assuming you're with child, you've got to stop dressing like it. Bey and the rest of y'all, listen very, very closely to what I'm about to reveal -- six fashion tips that'll help you avoid the annoying baby bump buzz.

If you have a flat stomach, then you won't look pregnant in these things. (Or at least I don't look pregnant)

I have almost flat stomach but big boobs and hourglass hips with a small waist. I actually look thinnest in empire waists because they minimize my ddd chest and show off my tiny waist. Its all about finding the right clothes for YOUR BODY

I have a closet full of empire waists I thought made me look thinner. They do, until you've had a big meal or you're not sucking in. live and learn <3

Who cares if people think you're pregnant, as long as you know you're not, let the rumors fly. In fasion you might be concerned about "Do I look fat in this?" But if it looks good anyway, I wouldn't care about people speculating that I might be prego.

i didnt think one picture makes a woman look pregnant, if she has a belly its because of her not because of her clothes

people are stupid. stop worrying about what other people think.  just be comfortable.

Empire waists are beautiful and have been around since the Renaissance--meanwhile much of today's stupid fashions (reverse heels?????) will go away, thankfully soon and forever. Last night, I saw a fashion show clip and the women's mouths were covered in duct tape. Really? I'm supposed to trust these people?

Personally, I have and/or would wear a lot of these. I don't think I've ever had anyone ask me if I was pregnant wearing any of this...but I am kinda skinny =/
