Is a heavy mid-section and a prominent bust giving you sleepless nights? Namraata Badheka tells you how to flatter your bust with wrap dresses.
Necking the right way!
Wrap dresses have V necks which are a boon to this figurine. They subtly distract attention from your spilling out stomach and bustline. However, steer away from plunging V-necks. Instead go for the less cleavage showing dresses and make an elegant statement with a cinched belt that narrows down the wide waistline. The overall effect is very vintage and very feminine.
Colours and prints
Stick to one dark colour when choosing wrap dresses for your apple shape. It will provide your apple shape with a slimming effect. When choosing a wrap dress for an apple shape, give preference to small prints. Large prints will make you look stout and short.
Fitting the fit perfectly
Since your figure carries more weight in your midsection, it’s better to opt for slightly loose-fitting wrap dresses. It’ll even out the weight distribution, complimenting your bust. Keep in mind to avoid baggy fits. Opt for lengths that go upto the knees. Dresses that reach midthighs are also a good option to narrow down your waistline. Also, avoid sleeveless, halter-necks or spaghetti straps. They tend to make the shoulders bulkier than they are.
Fabricating and flattering fabrics
Cotton and silk create a slimming effect over your apple silhouette. These fabrics tend to skim your figure flaws, giving a smooth free flow and adding definition.
