The wrap dress was created in the early 1970s by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg. This dress is basically a single-piece dress with a three-panel design that includes the inner panel, outer panel, and a belt or a snap to fasten the two. It follows your body, enhancing and concealing at the same time, that is the reason why it looks amazing on all body types.

Since Furstenberg introduced the work-to-play style, the effortless look has become a staple in women’s wardrobes. Her wrap dress traditionally consists of long sleeves, a V neckline, and a knee-length skirt.
Over the years, the iconic wrap dress became a symbol of femininity, women’s empowerment and hence a wardrobe essential. Even though it’s been more than 40 years since Diane Von Furstenberg unveiled her first wrap dress, it seems the high street still have such a big demand for them. Today, however, cool textures, prints, and varied hemlines dominate this classic style.
The best thing about a wrap dress is that it will fit you from the moment you first purchase it to the many times your weight changes. Most clothes don’t give you much wiggle room when you gain or lose weight. But, with a wrap dress, it’s a perfect fit every time and can be customized to your figure. Whether you’re petite, curvy, straight or tall, a wrap flatters almost every figure. Unlike these dresses, a wrap dress grows with you. Because they’re adjustable, you can tie them as loosely or tightly as you like. The tie waist allows you to easily wrap it once or twice around and tie it to fit my figure. Because the closure is often a side tie, it can accommodate a few couple inches added around your waist so you can continue wearing it while you’re trying to burn off extra weight. But, just because it wraps around you doesn’t mean it’s the right shape for your body.
Those with apple-shaped body figures have a heavier upper body in comparison to your lower part of the body. This body type usually has broad shoulders and a bigger bust line. Normally for apple body shapes the waistline isn’t well-defined, and most weight is distributed through your bust and midsection. For this body shape, we have to create a visual balance between your narrow upper body and wider lower body. Your goal is to minimize your midsection by highlighting your neckline and legs. This can be achieved by drawing attention to the upper body or emphasizing the upper body. So, choose a wrap dress with boat necks, scoop styles, and even plunging necklines to draw attention to the upper body.
