I remember when I was in high school I used to raid my mum’s closet for her Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dresses, the original and most iconic of the style. The wrap dress is universally flattering and so easy to wear. Cut to 2018 and it’s made a come back in a major way. The high street offers countless options and our favourite cult brands Realisation Par, Reformation, Ganni etc all bring their unique take on this sexy, feminine style. Just a note – us top heavy gals almost always need to size up or risk a nip slip. This is a recurring gripe I have with wrap dresses. As a rule of thumb I always go up a size, particularly with the aforementioned cult brands (Reformation I sometimes have to go up 2 sizes, wtf). That being said, I don’t find that it compromises the overall fit of the dress because you can just pull the tie closer to get it to hug your figure. This summer I lived in my Ganni wrap dresses like this one and for reference I’m usually a DK38 and I bought all my dresses in a DK40.
I’ve included my favourite wrap dresses below.
