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!
