We don’t know about you, but we’re planning on basically eating all day long on Christmas. It’s only one day a year, and we intend to have our pumpkin pie and eat it, too — after all, calories don’t count on holidays, right?

But as much as we’d really like to, we can’t wear our sweats (or unzip our pants) at the holiday dinner table. Luckily the style mavens over at Refinery29 put together some dignity-sparing options for how to dress well and gorge yourself. Yep, you’re welcome.

Option 1: Keep it Cute
Need to conceal an expanding waistline? Try a loose peplum cut dress in a forgiving material. The R29 gals found this one from H&M that’s a steal at $34.95. Plus it’s black, a color which everyone knows magically makes all bulges invisible.

Option 2: Keep it Comfy
Two (ok, three) words: Tunic and leggings. A slimming pair of low-waisted leggings paired with a generous tunic will give you more than enough room for seconds (ok, thirds). Just make sure to accessorize your ensemble — a statement necklace and ankle boots! — to keep yourself looking fabulous rather than frumpy.  

Option 3: Keep it Real
Serious Thanksgiving gorgers know that the only way to make sure there’s no waistline constriction is to make sure there’s absolutely no waistline constriction. R29 suggests a caftan (which is couture for “mumu”) a look that will not only make a fashion statement, but also state, “I’m here for ALL THE FOOD.”
