Ab exercises will help tighten it up: when you sit down you probably allow your muscles to relax. You can get to a point where your abs are being tightened, even when sitting down. You can do crunches, but I would just suggest tightening your ab muscles, and keeping them tightened as you sit down and get back up again (like doing squats/chair pose in yoga).
