Woman fashion: how to rock mini dresses when you have curves?

Wearing a short dress is rarely Easy. Too many details to think about: the material, the cut (to avoid having to readjust every step), the balance of the silhouette … End up looking for a chair and to not move until it’s time to leave, unfortunately still, a behavior of many women when they wear a short dress.

When you have voluptuous curves, far from being a sinecure, it’s almost an impossible mission. And this, from the moment you’re searching in the shops. I told you here how difficult it was to find clothes in the air when you’re curvy. Well, when it comes to the mini dress it’s just as complicated, if not more so. Unsuitable materials, rough cuts … I pass you the details. It is hard not to simply give up.

As abandonment is not an option, especially when I have a specific idea for a silhouette, after almost two hours of research, I ended up digging the perfect dress.

Whether you are looking online or in stores (yes there still some chances ), finding the perfect dress for you and rock it, will become simplier, even pleasant. How?

From you body shape, you choice will always depend.

I will never stop saying it, your choices must depends on your silhouette and its particularities. More than  the « must haves » or decided as shapes adapted for “curvy” “skinny” …. by X or Y.

If you have large shoulders for example, models with epaulettes or too closed at the neck will not be suitable. They will focus on the bust and shoulders, unbalancing the silhouette. On the other hand, if you have hips wider than the shoulders, you will have to pay special attention to the cut / material combo. Indeed, a straight mini dress, in some synthetic Lycra type, will never suits.

Different styles, you will try

Once you have found the type of dresses that suits your silhouette, just have to dare. Accessories, shoes, the field of possibilities is infinite.

What’s better than tights to highlight these legs so well revealed? Fishnet, colorful, with the seam behind … it’s up to you. Plus, it’s a great way to feel “safe” and comfortable.

Your choice of shoes, more than your dress, determine the style of your outfit. Sneakers for a casual look or with flat/heels boots or for a preppy, feminine look. Mutine, fatal … be the woman you want thanks to your shoes.

Here my suggestions to help you find the perfect mini dress to enhance your shapes.

Dare and remember: pensez, appliquez, modez.
