About Wrap Dresses
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the most flattering dress of them all? The answer isn't the maxi, the sundress, or even the LBD; it's the wrap dress. Created by famed designer Diane Von Furstenberg, the wrap dress cinches the midsection, creating the illusion of a smaller waist. Women of all shapes and sizes look great in a wrap-around dress. Some dresses have long straps that literally wrap around the torso and tie either at the front, back, or side of the waist. Faux-wrap dresses, on the other hand, are sewn together and do not untie. If options are what you are after, try the convertible wrap dress. These garments typically come with long straps that women can twist, tie, and stretch to create various neckline styles, from halters to cap sleeves to off-the-shoulder. Pair a Maggy London wrap with a long necklace and flirty heels for a night out, or cover it with a tailored blazer for the office. Sellers on eBay offer wrap dresses in a wide array of colors, from feminine pastels to bold hues. A geometric or floral print works especially well for plus-size women looking to minimize their midsection.
