Thank goodness for Ruching

This week's big style tip is Ruching, a french term meaning to gather. When done right the effects are tantamount to Spanx, well almost! When choosing a dress with ruching, really it should be at least semi fitted, if its too big - it will just look like drapey fabric and remember my saying "you don't put a cury girl in a big dress"!!

If you're having a really off day (like you binged on pasta, beer and friens the night before) and want to get into that Ruched dress the next day - wear spanx underneath a ruched dress for a guaranteed slim down!

Below are some images of Ruching done well and my own pic in the black and grey dress of Ruching done semi right (I did have wine, bear, fries and bratwurst sausage last night)..

Gorgeous sold out asos top!


  1. Love your dress! Ruching is fabulous. I don't think I've ever seen it where it looked bad.

  2. The model in the top pic make that dress look great.
