Breaking Out a Bodycon

My love/hate relationship with bodycon dresses continues. While I do love the way they look. I never feel 100 percent comfortable wearing them…so, they only get broken out “once in a blue moon.” What can I say, I really like my fit and flare dresses!

However, my thoughts on finding a good bodycon dress still hold true. The most flattering bodycon dresses you can buy will have thicker material and have patterns on them. (If you missed my post for all my tips on finding bodycon dresses, click here.)

This particular one was another from my Aussie friends Lilee Yamanto in Brisbane, Australia. However, I’ve recently discovered that ASOS has some amazing bodycon dresses & international shipping is $4 or free for orders over $40. Their shipping policies alone are making them one of my favorite online stores (not to mention all the cute clothing).

Black bow heels

And it’s been awhile since I’ve featured these bow heels. But I have to say, out of all my shoes, these are the ones I get the most compliments on. You can never go wrong with black shoes! And despite their height, these shoes aren’t the worst to walk in. Not that I would advise walking a few miles in them or anything…. but for heels of this height, they are quite comfy!

  1. Though not lover of bodycone dress but after seeing u wearing it wanted to try atleast once..hopefully it looks so good on me too.

    By the way bow heels are marvelloua

  2. What a gorgeous dress – perfect fit and beautiful colours. Everything makes it just right for you. And I like the way the bows on the shoes pick out the black diagonals on the dress. Kx

  3. I shop at ASOS regularly! However I end up sending most of it back more often than not. Doesn’t stop me from shopping there again!
    Also, you look amazing in that dress, and I can see why you get so many compliments on the shoes – tres cute! xx

    1. That is good to know! And hey, they have a decent return policy – so that’s good! 🙂 And thank you so much, Bry! 🙂

  4. I remember reading your first post about the body con. It really struck a chord with me, because I would never have imagined wearing one before that!!
    I think this looks fabulous on you, Lindsey—you need more!!

    1. Oh gosh, thank you so much, Jodie! And I’m so glad you found that last bodycon post helpful. Can’t wait to see you rocking one in the near future! 🙂

  5. I definitely agree, I’m not usually a lover of bodycon dresses, but I do really like that one on you! I’m much more of a fit and flare girl myself, but it looks great when someone can make an ensemble like yours!

    1. Aw, thank you, Jocelyn! Oh yes, I will always love my fit and flare dresses – but every once in awhile it’s fun to change it up. 🙂

  6. You look incredible in this dress. It fits you like a glove and looks like it was made for you.
