If you’re a fan of figure-hugging fashion, you’ll be pleased to hear that bodycon is back. These flattering garments are perfect for women of all shapes and sizes and will make an excellent addition to your wardrobe.
Knowing how to wear your bodycon dress will help to ensure you look as good as possible next time you head out for the night or dress up for a special evening in. To help you get it just right, we’ve put together a guide on how to wear bodycon well.
What is bodycon?
Originally bodycon was a term used to describe figure-hugging dresses made from heavy, close-fitting material. The cut and weight of the fabric were designed to suck in any lumps or bumps a person might have and smooth off their curves. However, now the term is used to describe flattering, figure-hugging dresses often made of a much thinner fabric than the original dresses.
Bodycon dresses come in all sorts of styles and different sizes but they all have the same thing in common. They are tight, very tight.
Choosing the right size
As with many types of dresses, lingerie and accessories, the key to wearing bodycon well is choosing the right size. A bodycon dress should be tight and form-fitting but shouldn’t feel uncomfortable. Before investing in a new bodycon dress, make sure you measure your waist, hips and bust to get the sizing just right.
Show off your best bits
Try to select a style of dress that shows off your best bits. For example, if you have a fantastic collarbone or elegant neck, choose a strapless design. If you have knockout legs, opt for a skirt that stops well above the knees. If you think your bust is your best feature, choose a low cut one.
Bodycon dresses have a naturally glamorous look. So if you’re going to wear one, make sure you have high heels to match. They will help to elongate your legs and make your silhouette even more elegant. Heels will also help you to feel more confident and stand that little bit taller.
Watch what you wear
As bodycon dresses hug the skin, there is a good chance so will show exactly what you are wearing underneath. So it is important to choose carefully to ensure the dress gets all the attention and not your knickers. Of course, if you can’t find anything suitable to wear you could just wear nothing at all.
Keep it simple
The whole point of a bodycon dress is that it shows off your figure and makes your curves the star of the show. Adding too much jewellery or other accessories can complicate your look and take attention away from your silhouette. Keeping your outfit as simple as possible will keep all eyes on you and ensure you feel truly fantastic in your bodycon dress.
