Bright & Tight

When Hybrid sent me this midi body con dress in a fabulous orangey hue, I decided to step way out of my comfort zone.

I have always assumed 'body con' was derived from something to do with 'body contouring'. However,  Google informs me that it actually comes from a contraction of the phrase 'body conscious'.  

I've always felt that wearing this fit is a bold statement of body confidence and self-esteem. Usually made from lycra, this dress clings tightly to the body, showcasing the figure and leaving very little to the imagination.

This season, we have seen that the midi dress is one to watch. Calf skimming dresses are getting an update with slip shapes and sporty detailing. Bodyconsilhouettes lead the way from day to night, as conversational prints, cut-away detailing and mesh panelling give the classic midi shape a directional edge.
