When checking garment measurements here - pay attention to the "sweep" and keep it within just a few inches of your hip measurement.  I would estimate that no more than 4" larger than hip measurement for wearing ease.

 

For less than 4" ... make sure there are side slits.


I agree with @ALRATIBA's suggestion that you check the sweep measurement (and also the length, so you have an idea of where the length is on you and that you stay close to your body measurement (including pants) so the material doesn't stick out.

You're throwing me off when you say you want to cover your missing hips and butt. A straight tunic would accentuate the fact that you're not so shapely. Is that what you want?


 

 

Fine minds @Andreatoo...

 

I also have a very straight shape--no hips or butt and wide shoulders. I always look for A line shaped to balance my proportions.

Check out Zulily (On line and part of the QVC family).  If that does not work do what I do try Walmart.  Styles change and quality can be had anywhere.

@Andreatoo No...When I wear a straight tunic it looks normal on me. When the tunic has a flair to the hips it looks odd on me. The flair should help me but it doesn't. The flair accentuates my non-hip shapeless figure. Smiley Surprised(

Re: Tunics -NEED help

Does it have to be from QVC?  I too have no hips or butt and I have long legs.  My hips are only 3” bigger than my waist and I love it because I live in leggings & skinny jeans.  We have the best JCP in our small town with cute clothes.  I’ve also got some at Kohls and even Ross.  I love Lisa Rinna and have a couple of hers too.

Re: Tunics -NEED help

@Ms tyrion2 No hips here too. Sometimes I enjoy a more “girly” silhouette that a flared tunic gives. Not always. I have both and also a good alterations lady who has fixed a few for me.
