Milkshakes: super-creamy, dairy deliciousness that everyone loves, right? Well, for those of us with IBS (or lactose intolerance – my Lactaid-needing ladies, I see you), anything from ice cream to cheeseburgers can trigger a one-way trip to Bloat City, population: me.
A little tip that’s saved my day-to-day style (and unwavering lust for Oreo milkshakes) on numerous occasions: wrap dresses hide everything. Whether you need a li’l more room after gorging on free bread at your favourite restaurant or extra leeway to accommodate period bloating, a roomy wrap dress will have you (literally and figuratively) covered.
Not only do these flattering dresses save us unlucky souls blighted by The Bloat, but they also happen to be one of the most versatile wardrobe essentials. Easily dressed up or down via heels and trainers, these do-it-all pieces can be worn to family BBQs, fancy dinners, and evening drinks.
Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, they genuinely suit everyone. Whether you’re a pear-shaped stunner or an apple-y beauty, this low maintenance style will hug your waist and skim any bumpy bits with its front overlay and floaty length. Wrap dresses, we stan.
1. Bloat-Friendly Fits
Yep, I’m a li’l biased here – my love for wrap dresses stems from their uncanny ability to hide even the most egregious food baby (I’m talking super-cheesy tacos *plus* ice cream sundaes). The Penelope wrap dress comes in a comfy, flattering fit made for those days when you’re feeling kinda bleh. Featuring a sweet ditsy print, this midi pairs beautifully with your go-to white trainers.
2. All Kinds Of Versatile
Going out for a picnic with the pals? Off to a summery wedding with your nearest and dearest? Well, these leopard print maxis are your new BFFs. Like all wrap dresses, these one-piece wonders work as well at low-key hangs as they do at evening events. Dress down via comfy flats and minimal accessories or opt for some strappy heels if you’re heading somewhere fancy-schmancy.
3. Flattering On Every Figure
We weren’t lying when we said wrap dresses flatter every figure with their waist-cinching fits and flowy details. This suit-all midi teams vibrant splashes of blue with cute cuff sleeves. We’ve styled her here with nude heels, but she’s also gorgeous with trainers!
