Empire Maxi

Old Street Dress; Melissa Shoes; Zara Bag; Forever New Sunglasses
Foschini Hat; Woolworths Bangle


I got this dress from Old Street Retro a couple of years ago and it's a great piece - it has seen me through my pregnancy (see proof, here!). That's the beauty of an empire line dress - it suits every body shape. It flatters apples (wide waistline) and pears (wide hip & thigh area) especially because it skims over the stomach, hips and thighs. It also elongates the body - and that is slimming in itself.

Here are a two of my favourite budget-friendly empire maxi's from Mr Price: blue and print. If you don't mind splurging, Kapsule have beautiful ones, here and here. And finally, Spree have a range of maxis to suit every shape - and quite a few empire ones. Here are my faves from them: black & white, magenta, colourblock and embellished.

Now, I'm all for women wearing what they want as opposed to "what suits you" because I believe you determine what suits you, because personal style is about wearing what you like, confidently. That said, I suggest an empire maxi for these body types if you want to mask these areas - if not, rock that bodycon dress!
