Curves!

Two or three years ago a dress-style came out which is perfect for me: a curvy pattern on the front of the dress that is actually a silhouette inside the sheath of the dress. The design creates an illusion of female shape. Since I have a cylindrical shape devoid of curves, I hoped this style would add the appearance of rounded edges.

I just found such a dress in a thrift-store and am playing with it. What do you think? How convincing is the illusion?

By the way, does anyone know what this style is called? I call it magic!

  2. It does what you would hope it would do. It gives the illusion of curves and it looks great on you and you matched it perfectly with the black hose and heels.

  3. I call it a “color block” style. I’m a dressmaker and have several male clients looking o dress for their feminine side, and this is always a favorite. It looks great on you!

  6. Body con is just a very tight, body-conscious dress. I'd agree on a curvy, colour-block, but whatever you call it, YES!! This looks amazing on you, Ally! You are Va-va-voom for DAYS! Hell, yes!

  11. Hey Ally! I haven't commented in awhile, because I usually just lurk on my phone and for whatever reason Blogger never lets me comment, but now that we started our new blog I have an excuse to get on the lappy again.

    I really love this look. Honestly, it seems like a 90's dress which I love, but I adore how you have updated it. Beautiful <3

  14. I think body con is what it's called. The dresses are super form fitting dresses. I'd totally wear one if they came with built-in blubber control. LOL!
