It seems that the body con look, popularized by Herve Leger's bandage dress isn't going anywhere. As cute as the slinky dresses look on celebrities on the red carpet, pulling them off in real life is a whole different story. The style emphasizes curves, which can make it hard for a lot of the female population to pull off!

Luckily, slipping on a shapewear piece underneath a slim fitting dress is a quick fix for streamling your sillhouette. Lingerieplease sent me their Charnos shapewear to test out for a night on the town (outfit pictures to come!). It fits like a corset, but way comfier! It was a great solution for dresses that make you feel like you have to suck in all night while you're wearing them.
I hate when trends are confined to certain body types; & i love the idea of making body con dresses a bit more wearable for the rest of us!
Do you wear "body con" style dresses, or do you perfer a spandex-free style?
