Style Shot: The Wiggle Dress

The phrase ‘wiggle dress’ conjures up some saucy and fun images, doesn’t it?!

This dress was quite literally designed to make it’s wearer wiggle while she walks!

Cleverly designed to be both sexy and tasteful at the same time, this stylish retro classic is a rare type of frock that pretty much suits every shape and size. It was also designed to draw one’s attention to the wonderful curves of the lady-form and doubled as both day wear and evening wear.

Perhaps the most famous sporter of the wiggle dress summed up perfectly what this garment achieves:

"Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman but lose enough to show you’re a lady."  - Marilyn Monroe.
