Ruched Dresses

Ruched dresses are characterized by a special sewing technique—ruching. Ruching is a French word that means gathering, pleating or ruffling. Ruched dresses have fabrics or ribbons gathered together on certain points, forming, scallops, ruches or ruffles. The ruching creates the focal point of ruched dresses.

Choosing the Right Ruched Dress

A ruched dress is perhaps one of the most forgiving and most versatile of all dress styles. Given the right cut and design of a ruched dress, any body type can beautifully fit in one. Whether you are in the slimmer side or the fuller side, you can easily find the perfect ruched dress for you.

Ruched dresses, when worn by the right body type, are sexy and stylish. They come in all kinds of fabric types, colors, length and cut.

Ruched Dresses for the Tall and Slender

If you have tall and slender physique, you can probably wear any ruched dress, regardless of type. Ruching will fall evenly and you will not have to worry about ruching falling on problem areas. You can rock both long and short ruched dresses. The only determining factor in your selection is the type of occasion or event.

You can wear long ruched dresses on occasions that require you to dress up. These occasions may be a gala, prom or wedding. A long ruched dress on a tall, slender frame makes the wearer even taller. It beautifully emphasizes the curves and long legs. Pair it with high-heeled shoes and you have a winner in your hands.

For a less formal event, you can opt for short ruched dresses. A short ruched cocktail dress gives off a casual vibe and is great is exposing long, well-toned legs. For a more casual look, select vibrant colors. Turquoise, yellow and orange are great choices. If you want the summer look, you can choose from the wide array of printed ruched dresses available. Whether you opt of high heels or flats to go with your ruched dress, you will still look amazing on one.

Ruched Dresses for the Short and Petite

If you have a short and petite frame, your best bet for ruched dresses is a short and simple one. Short ruched dresses will give the illusion of height. This is particularly true with a ruched dress that shows off a good amount of legs.

When choosing the design or style, make sure to go for the simple and less ornate designs. An overdone ruched dress may have a tendency to overpower the wearer. The best ruched dress for a short and petite frame is one with ruches on specific areas. A dress with ruching all the way through may not be a good idea. A completely ruched dress on a short woman tends to emphasize the height and is not effective in creating the illusion of tallness.

Ruched Dresses for Women with Bulges in the Tummy Area

Not everyone is gifted with a Sports Illustrated or Victoria Secret body. Some have problem areas to worry and be conscious about. One ruled of thumb when it comes to selecting ruched dresses is—whatever your problem area is, make sure there are no ruches on it. Ruches on problem areas tend to highlight it instead of conceal it.

If your problem area is your tummy, ruched dresses with an empire waist are your best bet. It gives the illusion of a smaller waist, and effective conceals unwanted bulges on the tummy area. Colors also play a major role in concealing what needs concealing and in highlighting what needs highlighting. A top with lighter color and darker lower half is effective in disguising the waist and emphasizing the bust.

Ruched Dresses for Bottom Heavy Women

Even bottom heavy women or women with pear-shaped body type can look good on ruched dresses. If you have this body type, the perfect ruched dress for you is the one with ruching on the upper part or top part of your body. Dresses with ruching on the top part give more volume to the upper part of the body. This gives the wearer a more proportionate look. It takes the attention of the heavy bottom and gives the illusion of a bigger bust.

Avoid ruched dresses with ruching on the entire dress or ruching on the bottom part of the dress. This style will just make your bottom heavier. Also, stay away from ruched dresses that hug the body. They will just emphasize your problem areas.

Choosing the right color is also an effective way to look good in a ruched dress. To create the illusion of a smaller bottom, choose darker colors. Multicolored dress is also another option. Just make sure to choose one with a light color on top and dark color on the bottom.
