When Shopping for a dress with ruching look for:
- Gathers that sweep across the stomach
- Gathers that flow in an upward motion
- Dresses Made With Jersey Fabric
2. A Jumpsuit With Ruching
Jumpsuits in general are flattering to the figure because they automatically offer a monochromatic look. Whenever you wear one color on top and bottom it has an elongating effect.
When Shopping for a jumpsuit with ruching look for:
- Roominess in the tummy area
- Material that offers some stretch
- Gathers that give a wrap around feel
- A Belt that sits high on the waist
3. A Swimsuit With Side Sweeping Gathers
Wow! Need I say more!
4. The Shirred Shirt
Shirts gathered and shirred at the band area are an excellent tummy disguise. Notice the V-framing and bat wing sleeves of this particular gathered top. The v shape gives the body an instant hour glass shape.
