"LOOK/FEEL GOOD" TIP OF THE DAY - "BANDAGE" YOURSELF SLIM!
Even though the bandage dress became famous a few years ago for making already-tiny celebrities look tinier, it has been test-tried and proven to also flatter women of a variety of shapes and sizes. While Kim Kardashian possesses a small waist and svelte legs, her buxom "B's" and wide hips still create a fuller hourglass shape, meaning she is still larger than many of her pencil-thin superstar buddies. Therefore, a curvier gal - like Kim - has been pulling off this sexy and stylish trend (repeatedly). This dress - which originally sold at BCBG Max Azria for thousands of dollars - is also available at stores like Bebe and Sirens for under a hundred bucks. The bandage stretch comfortably holds in and smooths bulges, while contouring and lifting your breasts and buttocks simultaneously. Can't find a bandage dress within your budget, size, or travel? You can never go wrong with a plain dress in one solid colour. Add in a skinny belt to cinch the waist and accentuate or build an hourglass silhouette.
