Happy Monday! How are my beauties doing? Another week and it’s busy already.
Anyway’s, isn’t this dress gorgeous? I still stand by what I said in this post, a body-con dress is a must-have basic piece! it should be a basic wardrobe necessity for ladies who love to flaunt their curves. The term body-con depicts body conscious as they flatter the contours of the body, you do not need extra effort as the dress on its own brings out all the right details, it should not show off your body completely, depending on how you style it and also the cut of your garment, you can use it to flatter your best features only.

In order to carry off a body-con outfit, you need to be confident about your body, not conscious of it. Body-con outfits are figure-hugging clothing, that cling on to every curve of your body. So you need to be super confident and comfortable with showcasing your body and its curves, which is the reason why many women shy away from wearing body-con dresses. If you know how to rock them, body-con outfits are a very convenient and great-looking addition to your wardrobe.
These tips below can help you in wearing body-con the right way
Don’t be afraid! – I said it in this post and will say it again, The most important rule to wearing anything is to be comfortable and happy in it. The thought of tight, figure-hugging clothing inspires fear in the majority of women, but it shouldn’t, most body-con pieces are actually pretty flattering, due to the fact that they suck you in, smoothing out your shape.
Wear the right Shape wear – Invest in some good quality shape wear to tuck in any extra flab and shape up your waist and bust. Even if you are of a slender frame, it is still a good idea to wear some shape wear underwear under your body-con dress. They help smooth out the entire look and you won’t have to keep worrying about bra impressions or panty lines showing. When you don’t have to worry about your underwear making an appearance, you will automatically look and feel more confident.
Choose what to showcase. it’s best to decide what assets to flaunt and cover the rest! Which in my case is my thighs, I chose to cover every part and show my thighs This way, I flaunt my legs, but keep the cleavage under wraps for a classy look.
Accessorize Right – Accessories must always go with the dress, the body-con dress is a show stopper on its own, which means it’s best to keep the accessories at a minimum. Skip the heavy-duty jewelry and focus on pieces meant to complement, not overpower your outfit. I later switched to these beautiful Ntoma(African print ) necklace and earrings from serwaa afriq collections. Keeping accessories and shoes neutral definitely helps keep the focus on the look, without pushing it over the top
Wear Heels – I highly recommend wearing high heels with your body-con dress. The heels will give you better posture and make your back look straight as well. The added height will also give you more confidence and show you to your best advantage. Its ok to wear flats, but I don’t know if a body-con dress normally looks good with them, you can though if you are really tall and skinny.
