Choosing the right clothing according to their body type is absolutely essential in order to make women look good. And finally, there's a dress that is specially designed for women who have curves in all the right places.

A wrap dress is indeed very curve-friendly, in the sense that it accents the bosom, tightens up the size of your waist (generally with a belt or sash), and accents the hip. This way, when you wear a gorgeous knit or silk wrap dress, you'll have that hourglass figure that you've been dying for!

Wrap dresses are a great option for plus size women because it gives a slimming effect. Wrap dresses, though they have a basic pattern, come in different styles. For instance, you can have a knee-length dress with sleeves or you can have a short one with just thin straps.

You can have a long gown in a wrap pattern too, which starts flowing from the waist down. So, you see, there are different styles within the same pattern, so you can choose whatever suits you and the occasion the best.

Choosing the Right One
The key to looking great is to know how to pick the right dress for your body type. Heavier women should avoid going in for light colors like cream, baby pink, baby blue or white. Instead, pick dark colors like black, navy blue, deep brown or charcoal gray.

Also, avoid choosing dresses which have big prints on them. They will make you look bigger. If you have a very slender constitution with a small bosom and hip, wrap dresses won't really work for you.

Because they tend to enhance the curved shape of the body, it won't be fitting to wear it on a thin body. For medium-sized women, stripes (diagonal or vertical) can make you look slimmer.

So pick dresses with these if you want to look thinner. Small and floral prints are the general favorites when it comes to wrap dresses. However, plain ones without any work on them, except for a nice wide belt at the waist also look stunning.
When to Wear What
Now you must be wondering about what occasions a wrap dress can be worn for, right? Well, that's another of its special features. You can wear a wrap dress for almost any occasion. If it's a cocktail party, you can wear a sleek, knee-length black one with a dazzling belt as a cocktail dress.

Team it with a stylish clutch purse and a pair of oh-so-pretty strappy stilettos. If you need a formal dress for a wedding or another formal event, you can wear a sleeveless, pastel satin dress, with a chic V-neck. A sash contrasting the dress around the waist, a string of matching pearls around your neck, with a matching bracelet, a pair of pumps matching the sash, a nice handbag, and you're ready to go.

You can also wear a simple wrap dress as dressy casual attire at barbecues, picnics, etc. Just make sure you wear the right inner-wear because that will determine the fall of the wrap dress. Wrap dresses can make you look beautiful in a truly feminine way.

So, go ahead and get yourself a couple of these and get ready to get gorgeous!
