Timeless and universally flattering, wrap dresses are great for showing off your womanly curves while concealing your problem areas. A dress goes with everything, is appropriate for any occasion, and never goes out of style. If you are curious about which type of wrap dress to pick to flatter your body shape, keep on reading for some assistance.
If you’re petite: Be careful of midi lengths that fall on your calves as it may swamp your frame. Your best options are knee-length or maxi length styles that can create an illusion of a taller frame. You have to be wary of wrap dresses with exaggerated details like embellishments and full or wide cuts as they can easily overpower your smaller frame. Do your fashionista side right by investing in a dress with vertically oriented pinstripes that help to visually elongate your silhouette.
If you’re tall: A long torso and even longer legs may seem like enviable assets, but they do have a way of making it difficult to wear even modest hemlines. Take advantage of your tall frame by embracing maxi lengths in wrap dresses, but pay attention to proportions, so your hemlines and waistlines hit in just the right spots.
If you have full hips and thighs: Whether you are gearing up for a party or are attending your younger sister’s graduation, you need a dress that can stand on its own. Wrap dresses with fit-and-flare, mermaid, or free-flowing styles that cinch at the waist are just perfect for your figure. The best figure flattering choice is a maxi dress with a hemline that hits your leg at its slenderest point, either just beneath the knee or just below the swell of your calf to ensure you look fashionforward and comfortable.
If you have perfect curves: For hourglass bodies with perfect proportions, wrap dresses were made for you. Lose the frills for a smoking maxi that boasts tie closure, allowing you to adjust the dress to fit exactly where needed. This type of maxi is the perfect combination of style and comfort, you just have to make sure your wrap dress highlights the slimmest part of your waist and the perfect curves on your hips. It’s worth mentioning that a fine jersey fabric not only feels comfortable, but looks so incredibly luxe. Meanwhile wrap dresses in a tulip-style give your legs a longer and leaner look.
If you have a tummy: Wrap dresses are perfect for defining the slimmest part of your torso. For those girls with a tummy, an empire style or high-waist style of wrap dresses with a forgiving silhouette will conceal your stomach. Other selections that work best for your figure are dresses with a sleek A-line as opposed to styles featuring ruching or pleats that add bulk where you don’t want it. A well-cut wrap dress will fit and flatter your top half and then flutter over your middle, enhancing your bust and camouflaging the rest. Try a sleeveless, colourful style for summer.
