Why Did You Wear That: Waisting Away

11167_1_230When I’m already fifteen minutes late and still staring blankly into my closet, I pull out my “go to” secret weapon- the body-con dress. Simple as it may be, when styled correctly and I haven’t just ingested a 2lb steak, the body-con dress is a surefire hit.  A good body-con dress will hug you in all the right places without being overtly sexy. Meaning, you don’t need to be showing off all the goods (T & A) with a neckline down to your belly button and and a skirt up to your toned tushy.

Sometimes what isn’t showing is sexier than showing Victoria’s Secret amounts of skin. Wearing something that emphasizes your curves gives you the whole “hourglass” thing. Trust me ladies, there’s nothing sexier than showing off that little waist and your child bearing hips. It is scientifically proven that the hip to waist ratio is considered “attractive” to the opposite sex.  The “ideal” hip to waist ratio for women is .7. Ask my best guy friend, Matty, who has been trying to convince me of this for years.

So, here are some great options if you want to test out this scientific theory:

Here’s how I wore mine Friday night (obv, still without an intern):

Don’t forget to invest in the proper undergarments for this body skimming silhouette. Now, if your tummy isn’t as toned as you’d like, don’t fret my pet! There’s always Spanx to suck you in and play a little trompe l’oeil. Because it’s never been “hip” to be square.
