THREE TIPS TO ROCK A BODYCON DRESS CONFIDENTLY…

Bodycon dressDon’t you love a good bodycon dress? I know I’m a sucker for them. A good bodycon dress can give one curves in the right places. While they scream sexy, they have a touch of classic sophistication to them that I love. This is a very old (over 5yrs) purchase from Boohoo. It’s stretchy, comfortable, the midi length is just right and the tie-dye fabric is nice. As you can see I went the minimalist route by keeping it simple with accessories, -just a hat and a bag.

Wearing anything bodycon isn’t for everybody because, lets be real not everyone is confident with their body. I know I used to be that girl. “My belly looks big, my hips are too wide, my bum looks flat (e.t.c)”, -that was me years ago. First of all, ladies!, you don’t owe anyone flat tummy, but just in case you’re just not comfortable or confident.

*  Tip 1 – Up that Size *

Whenever I’m buying a garment that I know its figure-hugging, I opt for a size or two sizes up. One of my pet peeves is when one can see your panty lines in your garment. It makes me cringe. Lol!! So to solve that problem, either wear a tong (not a fan), seamless underwears or go komando but with a shapewear on. With the size up, your problem zones on your body won’t be too revealing.

*  Tip 2 – Layer Up *

If you’re still not comfortable with tip one, then by all means layer up. A good kimono, sleek blazer or denim jacket are great options, depending on the style you are going for. Just have fun playing with it.

* Tip 3 – Heels Up *

Again, this isn’t everyone’s cup or tea and I understand. Having said that, heels have a way of elongating and making one look slender.

Its up to you now. Any tips? Are you keen on bodycon anything? *Find some bodycon dresses; HERE | HERE | HERE*

    I’m not much of a bodycon wearer, but I love that you have the confidence to rock it! I think it’s definitely a confidence thing for most people, including me, but you’re 100% right that you don’t owe anyone a flat tummy, and you don’t have to have a perfect body to wear whatever the hell you want!

    You’re killing it with the bodycon dress! I love that they’re great to show your curves, hehe. I like the tip about buying a size or two bigger. I have a hard time with tight bodycon dresses. Thanks for sharing these tips!

    Your tips are great – I love them, although we have extremely different views about panty lines (I love both seeing and having them).
    The design of and print on the bodycon dress you were wearing in the photos above is very pretty, and you look absolutely FABULOUS rocking it!!!

    Going a size up definitely makes a bodycon dress more comfy. Heels are great because they make us stand up straight and layering is another great tip.You look gorgeous in that dress Missy.

    That is such a gorgeous dress. I definitely have moments where I don’t feel confident enough to rock one but I always size up anyway. It definitely makes a world of difference.

    Oh this dress looks great on you fits like a glove and I like the interesting pattern and the colors. Your tips are spot on. I don’t have any body con dresses. I do have some body con skirts but then I wear them with billowy blouses. I kind of feel I am too thin for them. But maybe I will try them one day.

    That dress looks great on you and I love the design of it! Bodycon dresses have always been something I haven’t been really comfortable wearing, but I like your tip of layering a jacket over it. And sizing up is a smart idea too!
