On Day 8 of the 2014 Dresses with Sleeves I am going to be slightly controversial. Curvy women CAN wear fitted dresses. I know whenever I highlight a fitted dress with sleeves I will get comments (particularly on the FabafterfIfty Facebook page) from people saying that as they have curves they couldn’t wear a dress like this. I think you can – in fact I do. As long as your figure is in proportion I don’t think your actual dress size really matters. What I would say is that wear a dress like this if you do have curves, then the right underwear is key – especially over 50! A good fitting bra and hold you on knickers! I have a very similar dress to this one – (it’s not available any more so I can’t share my own dress although I have posted a pic below of me wearing it!)
This Damsel in A Dress dress with sleeves is a stunning shade of blue. In stretch lace It has a flattering sweetheart neckline and lace sleeves.
I wear my very similar dress frequently – it’s a firm favourite!
What are your thoughts on wearing a body hugging dress?
