The crop top is the biggest fashion trend of 2014, with celebrities ranging from Taylor Swift to Kaley Cuoco to Emma Stone flaunting their toned tummies from beneath midriff-baring blouses.

The hot look has prompted women across the country to show their abs a little extra TLC so they can show them off in a crop top of their own. Many are eating extra-healthy and putting in long hours at the gym. Fitness experts advise people in pursuit of six-pack abs to combine cardio training intervals with core strengthening exercises.

Some are also turning to cosmetic surgery to sculpt their figures, choosing liposuction and/or tummy tucks to achieve crop top perfection.

The Times quoted one New York woman named Cristina, who declined to share her last name. After gaining 75 pounds while pregnant with her son, she lost 50 through diet and exercise alone. When she found the last 25 pounds impossible to shed on her own, Cristina decided to invest in a tummy tuck to restore her abs to their pre-baby state.

“I wanted to be able to wear showy things and couldn’t, but now my abs are smooth and tight,” she told the newspaper. “I think they look phenomenal, and I went out and bought seven crops since the tuck that I love wearing.”
