Lets face it. We women, especially moms, have an issue with our bodies. We’re constantly finding flaws – whether it’s our hips, buns, or even the backs of our knees. Having these types of thoughts often prevent us from wearing certain styles, cuts and colors that we envy others can wear beautifully and with confidence. “Oh, she looks amazing in that dress, but I would never be able to pull it off because of my ____________ ________ “ (insert excuse here).
Take the trendy bandage dress, for example. They are flattering, flirty, and very fashionable. So why wouldn’t you wear one?
Well, LightInTheBox.com – the chic within reach site for clothing, special occasion dresses, accessories and more, says ‘No More Excuses’ and provides the following solutions:
Excuse #1: “I don’t like my flabby arms, shoulders, back and buttocks”
LightInTheBox.com says the key to the bandage dress is that it keeps everything defined and under control and suggests a high V-neck dress that covers and zips up the entire back, has sleeves that hide the shoulders and arms, and conceals and defines the behind.
LITB Price: $129.99
Excuse #2: ‘I don’t want to go all ‘Sophia Vergara’ with my cup runneth over cleavage”
LightInTheBox.com suggests a boat neck dress that keeps the chest area covered and in control, but still accentuates “the girls” just in a more subtle way.
LITB Price: $76.99
Excuse #3: “I’ve don’t want to embarrass my kids by wearing something too tight, short or sexy”
LightInTheBox.com says you can look sophisticated and successful in a bandage and suggests a scoop neck, short sleeve dress that is cut just above the knee.
LITB Price: $76.79
Excuse #4: “My legs would put Charlotte’s Web to shame. I could never wear a short dress with all the varicose veins I now have after carrying a 9 lb. baby inside the womb!”
LightInTheBox.com says this one is definitely not brain surgery people! The simple solution is – wear a long dress that goes all the way to the ankle. Wow…that was easy.
LITB Price: $179.99
Excuse #5: “Serve me up with a side of syrup, because I’m as flat as a pancake.”
LightInTheBox.com says have no fear, my dear, the beauty of the bandage dress is that it contours whatever curves you do have, and suggests a dress with a slight, but not too revealing V-neck, and a short skirt to draw attention to your other assets like your long legs and cute behind.
LITB Price: $129.99
