We must say that fashion knows a thing or two when it comes to re-branding things to start selling them again. After a long dark era of over sized sweaters, t-shirts, jumpers, coats and vests to hide our curves, here come the bodycon dresses.
Yeah, I know, I might be a bit late on the trend, but if you follow this blog you may already know I’m not always in step with the times. Sometimes I go slower, sometimes I run too fast. But anyway, I kind of love this new democratic take on women’s body. Yeah, yeah I know that we only see super-models size 6 rocking those super tight dresses (oh, didn’t I explained it yet? Bodycon dresses = super tight dresses. That’s it. Yes, that’s really it.) but I’m feeling positive about the trend. Especially because I noticed that wearing that kind of dress made me discover my body all over again.
I was badly hit by the oversize trend and took comfort in it… maybe a bit too much. The result was that I lost some vital connection with my body shape, and lost track of any weight gain or loss, or any other change. So, I think that Her Majesty The Fashion got it right this time, and this trend will help people reconnecting with their own bodies.
