Bad Wrap

Happy Hump Day everybody!

I realize wrap dresses have gotten a bad reputation due to retailers shoving them down plus size women’s throats.  But in it’s defense there are plus size designers such as IGIGI who make wrap dresses that are sexy, curve hugging and appealing. Their wrap dresses aren’t bulky or employ garish prints. IGIGI doesn’t just rely only on wrap dresses for their customers.   They offer a variety of dresses that highlight our bodies.  I agree that wrap dresses shouldn’t be the only option for plus size women.  It is promoted as the “must have”  dress based on the perception that we want to hide and conceal our bodies.  For a growing majority of us (including myself) this is simply not true. As I’ve said before, I appreciate any dress whether it be a wrap or sheath  that allows me to flaunt my voluptuous shape.

Have a wonderful day!

P.S. The sash is red in person.  The flash on my camera makes it look pink.

    You look great! The dress looks better on you than it does on the IGIGI model. I love your necklace, too.

    And you are so right. Another lovely dress that suits you so well. Looking fantastic. Great combination with the necklace and the belt. I would never think of purple with red which is strange as my whole livingroom is decorated around these colours.

    I always love this combo and the dress fits you like a glove! I also think that your presentation is more appealing than Igigi’s – I’ve never really been interested in their dresses, they always looks pedestrian for some reason. But you look great and I can see myself wearing this.
