According to Wikipedia, the concept of bodycon dress was derived from the ancient Egyptian mummies wrapped in bandages. Earlier, when the dress was conceptualized in the 70s, it was called the bandage dress and later designers named it the body-conscious dress. In course of time, it became the bodycon dress!

How to carry your bodycon dress?
Carrying a bodycon dress isn’t an easy task. You need to be extra conscious about the bulges and curves to carry it with panache. It looks great on girls with an hourglass figure. Though a bodycon dress works wonders on slim and svelte girls, it adds loads of oomph factor to the curvaceous women as well. The trick is ‘to manage’ your flab well. So if you wanna grab the ‘killer’ look, you have to kick-ass the flab with class. 😉 Watch your weight and manage your body well with either workouts or yoga to fit in your bodycon dress. Contrary to the popular belief that ‘skimpy clothing is for skinny woman’, a bodycpn dress looks better on curvaceous women than leaner ones.
Right lingerie to be worn with a bodycon dress!
Being a fitted and a flimsy piece of clothing, the bodycon dress flaunts the flab and gossips the bulges! 😉 So, it’s quite important to pay adequate attention towards the lingerie you wear with it. Rather than opting for regular inner wear, you should opt for seamless lingerie to compliment your bodycon dress. A tube bra would work wonders on it, rather than a bra with seams or even a T-shirt bra. Instead of a regular panty, you should opt for thongs for that flawless, seamless look. If you’re leg conscious or having heavy legs for that matter, go for a pair of sheer stockings or pantyhose for those slender legs. To manage those unwanted bulges and flabs, opt for a bodysuit or a tummy tucker for that awe-inspiring look with that ‘wow’ factor. 😀
Shoes & Accessories for a bodycon dress!
For Day Look:
For day wear, ankle length boots, peep-toes or wedges with no less than two inches heels would do wonders. Big hoops and watches with bold dials would be enough to complete the wondrous look.
For Evening Look:
A bodycon dress drives attention towards your legs, so flats are a strict no-no for it! Pumps, stilettos, boots— whatever you choose, opt for heels as high as your attitude. 🙂 If you are planning to wear it for evenings, go for sky-high pumps or stilettos. Stone-studded danglers, delicate chandeliers and solitaire studs would add ample dose of bling to the evening. Go for delicate bracelets and classic watches.
The year 2014 is passing by but the fad of the bodycon dress refuses to fade and seems to stay here for a couple of seasons more. So go girls, grab one and celebrate your body and femininity because this fashion trend is all about being proud of yourself as a woman. 🙂
