Just like bigger women sometimes like to make themselves feel smaller, thin women sometimes like to make themselves seem a bit fuller - so here are some summer dresses for skinny women - that will add some visual 'va-va-voom' where you might need it, and most importantly: will make you feel beautiful. Here's to a feel-pretty summer!
Tip 1. Ruffles: Cute & Curvy!
Look for ruffles and extra layers in the right spots: at the hips, butt, and breasts. Ruffles tend to add visual curves.
I always look for tops and dresses with ruffles, and I know they can be hard to find.
This cute summer dress 'Boulin' from Mode-5.com is a perfect example though. Plus, the short length of this breezy summer dress is great for short/thin legs as well.
Tip 2. Stripes make breasts/butt/hips appear larger
Also look for dresses with horizontal stripes. The stripes make eyes go from left to right and back, and therefore make you appear 'fuller.'
Look for dresses like this stripy dress - perfect for if you have small breasts, or if you're lacking some junk in your trunk! ;) Just kidding, of course. I just want you to feel beautiful - and dresses like this one are great for a summer evening out.
Tip 3. Skinny? Wear patterns!
If you're thin, the best way to add some visual curves is by wearing patterns.
Whether the pattern is delicately cute, flowery, or big and bold: all types of patterns will add some visual bulk.
The pictured Sticker dress is a good example of a nice colorful pattern. I'd like it even more if it had some ruffles! Always choose patterns or horizontal stripes over mono-colored clothes - it makes shopping for summer dresses fun!
There you go: 3 tips for great summer dresses that'll make you feel beautiful, and ready to soak up the sun!
I personally can't wait to start wearing T-shirts, dresses, and get a nice flip-flop tan. :)
Hope you're all enjoying your Friday ladies, and here's to a great summer!
