Bodycon dressing

‘Body con’ is short for body conscious, which doesn’t need that much explaining I guess. Skintight mini-dresses, tight high-waisted trousers and many other garments that make you, well, conscious of your body, have been all over the catwalks and are very popular with celebs. These are of course not items to be worn for a big lunch…without busting a seam!

But there is something to be said for the capacity of the fabric and stretch of these styles to hold in the wobbly bits, which is never a bad idea. Also worth a mention – invest in some really great under garments to help you feel more confident in these revealing numbers.

Avoid sky-scraper heels with a tight mini dress, and either do legs or boobs – never both at the same time. Other than that it really is all about confidence!
