The Beauty of Bodycon (UPDATE w/ Sale Info)

Friends. I had to update everyone with a sale that Anthropologie is having. A very similar dress to the one below is on sale for over 50% off. Happy shopping!

Anthropologie dress (this year’s updated version here), SPANX tights, DUO boots, Ray Ban sunglasses

The last time this dress was worn, I mentioned that it was my first pearshape purchase. By that I mean it was the first dress I bought when I finally started to embrace my shape. The bodycon style and shorter length was a bold move, but this dress has paid for itself ten-fold. I purchased it at Anthropologie right when this style appeared in stores and is now reproduced in a new color each year.


Interestingly enough, I feel slimmer and sexier in this body-con style than in any a-line garment I own. I know many stylists and designers recommend that curvy women opt for the a-line style, that this “suites everyone.” While I agree, I think each person needs to find what style works for them, how they feel most comfortable. For me, showing off my curves has become my comfort zone, and in a dress that does such an amazing job of camouflaging any imperfections, I feel infinitely more confident.





Have a wonderful start to your week! And please, tell me, what style are you most comfortable in?

    You look so awesome in the dress! Thank you so much for posting this. I am a pear shape, too, and have wanted to sew this dress forever! I even have the pattern and material. My Pear Shape, which I prefer now to call an “A” shape has been what’s been stopping me. NO MORE! You have inspired me! You rock!!!!

  • SmartyPantz

    Yeah now I’ll never understand why any woman with hips would be in A line especially if they have a waist!!! A line has its uses but every thick/hippy chick isn’t interested in hiding all them hips! U look good!
