I used to be a die hard Body-con fan but for many reasons (weight gain, over saturation etc) I’ve weened myself off. However when I saw this citrus colored Body-con ( also wore Here) I knew I needed it. Those of you who have been following the blog for some time know I have a thing for this citrus color and actually it was the missing piece in a look that I wanted to recreate .
Speaking of weight
, wearing Body-cons
can be tricky when you carry weight in certain places body cons typically only favor women with hourglass
shapes. For the rest of us here are 3 Tips
to get the right “fit”
Look for heavier fabrics that do not have sheen ( they will camouflage imperfections like cellulite better )
Wear seamless underwear/shape-wear that SMOOTHS YOU OUT
Finally fit matters, size up if you must when buying body-con dresses; the last thing you want is the look of stretched spandex that tends to dig in un-flatteringly.
This particular Dress
is from Fashion to Figure
c/o and its made of a medium weight jersey could be thicker but not bad. I got it in a 2 (I am a size 16/18) it hits me right below the knee I am 5″7 and also comes in several colors. I paired it with a spring pick (see more picks & enter Giveaway Here
) the Tassel Clutch
and continued the color POP theme (inspired by the tropical vacations on my Instagram feed
) with Teal sandals
