3 Tips To Get The Right Fit In a Body-con: Green Dress & Tassel Clutch


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.
