How To Master Wrap Dresses When Between Sizes
My wrap dress journey started in 2018 when I was wearing a size 24, now I’m down to a size 18 in By Samantha Melbourne and loving all the new prints and styles being released.
Here are some of my tips and tricks to navigating size and fit when your body is changing.
- Selecting the Right Fabric and Style:
When caught between sizes, opt for wrap dresses with forgiving fabrics like jersey or spandex (I like By Samantha’s slinky touch base instead of the dry touch base). The inherent adjustability of wrap styles makes them an excellent choice for accommodating variations in body shape).
- Tailoring Tailored to Wrap Dresses:
For your beloved wrap dress that’s not quite the right size, consider the expertise of a tailor or contacting the friendly team at By Samantha Melbourne as they may be able to take your dress down a size for you! I’ve had the By Samantha team take one of my favourite dress down a size and it was the perfect fit- they can also adjust the waist, hem, or sleeves to enhance the beauty of your wrap dress.
- Thoughtful Layering with Wrap Dresses:
Enhance the allure of your wrap dress by experimenting with strategic layering. Add a stylish belt to cinch the waist or throw on a well-fitted blazer, creating a personalised look that addresses sizing concerns seamlessly.
- Shape wear as a Wrap Dress Ally:
To streamline your silhouette in a wrap dress, consider incorporating shapewear. High-waisted briefs or a bodysuit can offer a quick fix, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable in your wrap dress.
- Versatile Wrapping:
Embrace the versatility of wrap dresses with adjustable features like straps and ties. These allow you to customize the fit, ensuring that your wrap dress complements your unique measurements flawlessly.
Wear What Makes You Happy
Finding yourself between sizes shouldn't stop you from treating yourself to a stunning new wrap dress or getting rid of your favourite one. Thanks to the flexibility of wrap styles and creative options such as tailoring and layering, you can boldly embrace your unique shape. Your adventure with wrap dresses is a delightful blend of comfort and style, surpassing any limitations set by size labels. Enjoy in the pleasure of wrapping yourself in confidence and fashion!
