F is for Fern and Fauna

Put a Wiggle in it

Because I have an 18″ difference between my waist and my hips, I don’t often wear wiggle dresses. Unless there is a good amount of stretch in the skirt of a bodycon dress, most don’t fit both my hips, my waist and my chest all at once. That’s why, when I found this gorgeous Donna Karan floral, I was over the moon to find it fit all three perfectly. It has the perfect amount of stretch, it has a back cutout, the pattern is beautiful, and I could not pass it up!

I’ve always wanted to be a person who could easily wear wiggle dresses, but even at my thinnest my waist-hip difference was 15″, so it’s always been a bit difficult to find a wiggle that fit. Most silhouettes like this only allow for about 10-12″ of difference between the two, which is incredibly frustrating as someone pear shaped who can never hope for an even hourglass figure.

But, in the last few months I have found three great wiggle dresses at Goodwill, so it’s a sign that I should definitely dress in this silhouette more often!

Today, I forgot to think of a character before I wore a color, but incidentally Fauna from Sleeping Beauty wears a fern-green color, so we’ll roll with that. 😉
