Whatever your age or your size - YOU CAN WEAR A CROP TOP! Given the trend's skyrocketing popularity, there are so many styles out there that don't require a month long fast or a twice-daily commitment to the gym.
I love this version by Asos because it only hints at a bare midriff. It's cropped right at the top of my waistband (which I might add sits at my natural waist and not an inch below) giving me coverage but still achieving the trend. This wasn't a difficult find - there are tons of crop tops out there in endless fits and lengths to flatter your shape. (See outfit details below for options.)
Still not sure? Try layering a cropped shirt over a body suit. The body suit will smooth and camouflage less than favorite features giving an amended canvas on which to display the crop.
