Larger Build for A Cosplay

Not quite sure if this can go here, but the cosplay area didn't seem quite right. So I cosplay Nami from One Piece and am looking for a new costume besides her first outfit. I am looking at her alabasta outfit:


The only problem is I have a bit of a stomach and am on the larger side. The skirt is long enough that i could get away with it but it's the top that is giving me doubts. Do you guys know if there is something I could wear underneath the top that would maybe at least cover my stomach, I don't mind wearing something to to hide the fact I have a stomach, I just don't know what would work, my main thoughts are a camisole and some binding but I wasn't sure what would be good.

Can anyone give me an idea?

A body suit is always an option if you're uncomfortsble. But that's a really cool outfit and you should rock it.

How about sewing it as a one-piece dress and making the entire mid-section out of that opaque mesh material that ice skaters use on the openings and backs of their outfits? If you match it to your skin tone, it won't take away from the illusion of an exposed mid-section, but will give you the comfort of having it covered if you don't feel comfortable having it exposed.

I think what you're looking for is a full body suit or a body compressor, it sort of like spandex that's make for your arms, legs, body in one piece and does a great job in keeping your shape and form.
