When you've got nothing to hide, nothing shows it off better than an elegant sheath dress. Designed to hug your curves, a classic sheath dress is simple, with clean, flowing lines that put your figure center stage. The wide array of body-skimming options range from lush lace to splendid silks and comfortable cotton.

About Sheath Dresses

A sheath dress keeps no secrets. These form-fitting dresses are usually extremely simple, with few embellishments or eye-catching features, meaning the focus is on your figure rather than the dress fabric or design. A sheath dress hugs every curve, unlike a shift dress, which lightly skims the body. The Adrianna Papell lace-overlay sheath dress is a classic example of this style translated into a feminine, flirty garment. With its scalloped boat-style neckline and see-through sleeves, it's cocktail party-ready. For the office, choose a sheath dress made of suit material, and throw a cropped blazer on top. A Maggy London or Kay Unger stretch-satin sheath dress is a choice pick for the mother of the bride who wants to look fabulous on the big day but doesn't want to feel restricted by unyielding fabrics. Since sheaths are so simple, they're easy to accessorize with bold statement necklaces, dangling earrings, and stacked bangles. It's always a good idea to wear a sheath with a pair of heels to elongate your figure. Sellers on eBay offer sheath dresses in every style, size, and color imaginable to ensure you're always dressed to the nines.
