Guest post #3 - Hot dress tips by Peachy
"The sun is shining, the weather is warm and the days are longer at this time of the year! Summer is the
perfect time to bring out those bright colors, prints and shapes to look gorgeous under the sun. Here
are some hot summer dress tips for you:
Minus the Straps… Perfect!
Any body type can look extremely good in a dress; with a strapless dress however, it is
important to have the right fit as well as the right fabric. Heavy cotton would be perfect
and unless you’re extremely fit, clingy fabrics such as jersey dresses are big NO-NOs.
If you fall into the half size category, always pick a dress that’s one size larger. This will
definitely save you from any “skin hanging over” around your armpit area.
For slightly cool summer weather, especially if you're staying in the UK on a Bournemouth beach or a river Dart Dartmouth Holiday, you can always wear a solid-colored, paper-thin t-
shirt underneath or go get yourself a cropped jacket or a wrap knit to cover your bare
shoulders when feeling a little bit chilly.
Tube dresses with the typical Mexican blanket prints and floral patterns are hitting the
runway these season. You can pair these with wedges, jelly shoes, ballet flats and even
flip-flops! These are great for parties since the patterns accentuate your most sexy
areas. It’s fun, sexy and flirty at the same time!
Lift and Separate!
No matter how small your busts are, you really need to lift and separate to avoid
that “shelf” look when wearing a strapless dress. Make sure your strapless bra has
underwire or cups that are lightly molded to avoid finding yourself tugging your dress
just to keep it in place. And if you’re wearing a strapless dress with a heavy fabric, wear
a bustier instead to avoid the “saggy” breasts look."
