Let’s just make this clear: we are in no way bashing the body-con dress (fine, maybe a little bit) or the women who sport it, but what we’re trying to say is that, why not move on from this skintight garment that is constricting your every move? We know that body-con dresses highlight a woman’s best asset, but so do other dresses or pieces out there, sans the discomfort.
To make this argument a little clearer, scroll down to see why we think you should move on from the body-con!
It has been the go-to outfit of every party girl and just so you know it doesn’t hurt to get a little creative when it comes to your gimmick outfits like dressing up based on what you feel like wearing and not what the situation or what everyone else dictates. Don’t be afraid to stand out by not wearing the usual uniform!
Let’s admit it, the body-con is not exactly the most flattering dress out there, and most of the time, it even highlights the assets that you’re probably not too proud off—the tight fit, too much cutouts, the length or lack thereof—it’s just not right. So why not opt for something else that’s not too, uhm, provocative?
There are a variety of new silhouettes out there that you can wear (ahem, shift dresses. Ahem!)—not only do they highlight your body, they also flatter every shape, all while being totally comfortable. Go ride the normcore trend and go for understated, roomy, and clean outfits. It’s a nice change from all the über tight dresses in our closets.
Dressing up in a body-con dress feels like you’re dressing for the boys instead of dressing for yourself—too much of your goods are seen and none left for the imagination. And look, even Kim Kardashian stopped wearing them. You should too.
And this... "Hey, girl! I don't approve."
